Ветер
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Я кончился, а ты жива.
И ветер, жалуясь и плача,
Раскачивает лес и дачу.
Не каждую сосну отдельно,
А полностью все дерева
Со всею далью беспредельной,
Как парусников кузова
На глади бухты корабельной.
И это не из удальства
Или из ярости бесцельной,
А чтоб в тоске найти слова
Тебе для песни колыбельной.

Vent
Language: French (Français)  after the Russian (Русский) 
Je ne suis plus, mais tu es en vie.
Et le vent, se plaignant et pleurant,
Secoue la forêt et la maison.
Pas chaque pin séparément,
Mais tous les arbres ensemble
Avec tout l'horizon sans borne,
Comme des corps de voiliers
Sur la surface du port.
Et ce n'est pas par bravade
Ou par fureur sans but,
Mais pour trouver des mots d'angoisse
Pour te chanter une berceuse.
