Ptichka bozhiya ne znaet
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Ptichka bozhiya ne znaet
Ni zaboty', ni truda,
Xlopotlivo ne svivaet
Dolgovechnogo gnezda,
V dolgu noch` na vetke dremlet;
Solnce krasnoe vzojdyot,
Ptichka glasu boga vnemlet,
Vstrepenetsya i poyot.

Za vesnoj, krasoj prirody',
Leto znojnoe projdyot -
I tuman i nepogody'
Osen` pozdnyaya nesyot:
Lyudyam skuchno, lyudyam gore;
Ptichka v dal`ny'e strany',
V tyoply'j kraj, za sine more
Uletaet do vesny'.
