Sizhu za reshyotkoj v temnice sy'roj.
Vskormlyonny'j [v nevole]1 oryol molodoj,
Moj grustny'j tovarishh, maxaya kry'lom,
Krovavuyu pishhu klyuet pod oknom.

Klyuyot i brosaet, i smotrit v okno,
Kak budto so mnoyu zadumal odno,
Zovyot menya vzglyadom i krikom svoim
I vy'molvit` xochet: ,,Davaj uletim!

My' vol`ny'e pticy'; Pora, brat, pora!
Tuda, gde za tuchej beleet gora,
Tuda, gde sineyut morskie kraya,
Tuda, gde gulyaem lish` veter... da ya!``
