Снежки белые

Available translation(s): FRE
Снежки белые,
Пушисты покрывали
Все поля.
Одного лишь не покрыли
Горя люта моего.
День тоскую,
Ночь горою,
Потихоньку слёзы лью.
Слезка канет,
Снег растанет,
Травка вырастет на нём.

Neige blanche
Language: French (Français)  after the Russian (Русский) 
Neige blanche,
Un duvet de neige recouvre
Tous les champs.
Seule n'est pas couverte
Ma douleur amère.
Le jour, je gémis,
La nuit, je me désole,
En silence je verse des larmes.
Mes larmes tombent,
Elles font fondre la neige,
L'herbe poussera sur elles.
