Available translation(s): ENG ENG FRE
O chyom v tishi nochej, tainstvenno mechtayu,
O chyom pri svete dnya, vsechasno pomy'shlyayu,
To budet tajnoj vsem. I dazhe ty', moj stix,
Ty', drug moj vetreny'j, uslada dnej moix,
Tebe ne peredam dushi moej mechtan`ya.
A to, rasskazhesh` ty', chej glas v nochnom molchan`i
Mne sly'shitsya, chej lik ya vsyudu naxozu, 
Ch`i ochi svetyat mne, ch`yo imya ya tverzhu.
