Ещё в полях белеет снег
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Available translation(s): ENG ENG FRE
Ещё в полях белеет снег,
А воды уж весной шумят --
Бегут и будят сонный брег,
Бегут, и блещут, и гласят...

Они гласят во все концы:
«Весна идёт, весна идёт!
Мы молодой весны гонцы,
Она нас выслала вперёд.

Весна идёт, весна идёт,
И тихих, тёплых майских дней
Румяный, светлый хоровод
Толпится весело за ней!...»

La neige encor blanchit nos champs
Language: French (Français)  after the Russian (Русский) 
La neige [encor blanchit nos]1 champs,
Mais le ruisseau déjà murmure,
Et l'on entend au loin les chants :
C'est le réveil de la nature !

De nous s'approche le printemps.
Salut, printemps ! Salut, printemps !
Nous sommes ses joyeux courriers,
Et nous disons par les sentiers :
Salut, printemps !

Voici les jours de feux ardents,
Où bondit la ronde joyeuse,
Où la jeunesse insoucieuse
Chante et fête le printemps !
Salut, printemps !
