O wär' ich ein See, so spiegelhell

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Persian (Farsi)

O wär' ich ein See, so spiegelhell,
Und du die Sonne, die ihm blickte!
O wär' ich ein klarer Wiesenquell,
Und du die Blume, die ihm nickte!

O wär' ich ein grüner Rosendorn
Und du die Rose, die ihn schmückte!
O wär' ich ein süßes, süßes Korn,
Und du der Vogel, der es pickte!

O, esli by' sladostny'm by'l ya zernom,
a ty' by' ptichkoj, ego klyuyushhej!
