Уноси моё сердце в звенящую даль

Language: Russian (Русский)

Уноси моё сердце в звенящую даль,
  Где как месяц за рощей печаль;
В этих звуках на жаркие слёзы твои
  Кротко светит улыбка любви.

О дитя! как легко средь незримых зыбей
  Доверяться мне песне твоей!
Выше, выше плыву серебристым путём,
  Будто шаткая тень за крылом.

Вдалеке замирает твой голос, горя,
  Словно за морем ночью заря, --
И откуда-то друг, я понять не могу,
  Грянет звонкий прилив жемчугу.

Уноси ж моё сердце в звенящую даль,
  Где кротка, как улыбка, печаль,
И всё выше помчусь серебристым путём
  Я, как шаткая тень за крылом.

Carry my heart away into the crystal...

Language: English after the Russian (Русский)

Carry my heart away into the crystal distance, 
Where the crescent moon is pensive beyond the coppice, 
Amidst these sounds, upon your fervent tears
Always shines a smile of love.

Oh child, how easy it is amongst the unseen spheres
For me to entrust myself to your song, 
Higher and higher I fly on the silver path,
Like a quivering shadow under your wing. 

Your voice dies away in the distance, glowing
Like dawn above the sea, 
And then suddenly, I can't understand from where -
It rings out like a scattering of pearls.

Carry my heart away into the crystal distance,
Where my sadness is as timid as a smile, 
And I will fly higher and higher on the silver path
Like a quivering shadow under your wing.
