По над Доном сад цветёт

Language: Russian (Русский)

По над Доном сад цветёт,
Во саду дорожка,
На неё я б всё глядел,
Сидя у окошка.

Раз по ней под вечерок
Маша проходила;
Не забыть мне никогда,

Как она вздыхала,
Как с улыбкою любви
Робко отвечала,

Из кувшина в забытьи
Воду проливала.
По над Доном сад цветёт,
Во саду дорожка...

Près du Don un jardin fleurissait

Language: French (Français) after the Russian (Русский)

Près du Don un jardin fleurissait,
Dans le jardin passait un chemin,
Sur lui je regardais en silence
Assis à la fenêtre.

Une fois, vers le soir,
Macha apparut ;
Je ne l'oublierai jamais.

Comment elle soupirait,
Comment avec un sourire d'amour
Elle me répondit timidement.

De sa cruche oubliée
L'eau coulait goutte à goutte.
Près du Don un jardin fleurissait,
Dans le jardin passait un chemin.
