«Ja -- cvetok polevoj, ja -- lilija dolin.»
  « ,,Golubica moja belolonnaja,
Meždu junych podrug -- slovno v ternii krin.»
  « Slovno [jablon']1 v cvetu blagovonnaja
[Posredine]2 besplodnych derev'ev lesnych,
   Milyj moj - mež druzej molodych;
[Ja pod ten' ego sest' voschotela - i sela,
     I plody ego sladkie ela.
Provedite menja v dom vina i pirov,
   Odarite ljubovnoju vlastiju,
Položite na odr iz dušistych cvetov:
   JA bol'na, ja ujazvlena strastiju.
Vot ruka ego zdes', pod moej golovoj;
   On menja obnimaet drugoj...
Zaklinaju vas, junye devy Šalima,
   JA dolžna, ja choču byt' ljubima!]3»
