Черкесская песня

Language: Russian (Русский)

В реке бежит гремучий вал;
В горах безмолвие ночное:
Казак усталый задремал,
Склонясь на копие стальное.
Не спи, казак: во тьме ночной,
Чеченец ходит за рекой.

Казак плывет на челноке,
Влача по дну речному сети. 
Казак, утонешь ты в реке,
Как тонут маленькие дети,
Купаясь жаркою порой:
Чеченец ходит за рекой.

На берегу заветных вод
Цветут богатые станицы;
Веселый пляшет хоровод.
Бегите русские певицы;
Спешите, красные, домой:
Чеченец ходит за рекой.
