Вертоград моей сестры,
Вертоград уединенный;
Чистый ключ у ней с горы
Не бежит запечатлённый.
У меня плоды блестят
Наливные, золотые;
У меня бегут, шумят
Воды чистые, живые.
Нард, алой и киннамон
Благовонием богаты:
Лишь повеет аквилон,
И [закаплют]1 ароматы.

Language: English after the Russian (Русский)

 Garden of my sister,
 secluded garden;
 No clear spring there
 runs down, captured from the mountains.
 In my garden gleam fruits
 golden and ready to eat;
 In my garden runs noisily 
 clear, living water.
 Spikenard, aloe and cinnamon,
 rich in fragrance:
 So long as the aquilon wind is blowing,
 the aromas will spread!
