Ночной зефир

Language: Russian (Русский)

Ночной зефир
струит эфир,
  [Шумит,
  Бежит]1, 
Гвадалквивир.

Вот взошла луна златая,
Тише... чу... гитары звон...
[Вот]2 испанка молодая
Оперлася на балкон.

Ночной зефир 
Струит эфир,
  [Шумит,
  Бежит]1
Гвадалквивир.

[Скинь]3 мантилью, [ангел милый]4,
И явись, как яркий день!
Сквозь чугунные перилы
Ножку [дивную]5 продень!

Ночной зефир
Струит эфир,
  [Шумит,
  Бежит]1, 
Гвадалквивир.

Night Zephyr

Language: English after the Russian (Русский)

Night Zephyr 
streams through the ether,
Courses, 
roars, 
Guadalquivir.

Now the golden moon has risen,
Listen... Hark... The ringing of a guitar...
See, a young Spanish lady
Has perched upon a balcony.

Night Zephyr 
streams through the ether,
Courses, 
roars, 
Guadalquivir.

Shed your mantle, dear angel,
And appear as a bright day!
Through the cast-iron balustrade
Thread your sublime little foot!

Night Zephyr 
streams through the ether,
Courses, 
roars, 
Guadalquivir.
