Sizhu za reshjotkoj v temnice syroj.
Vskormljonnyj [v nevole]1 orjol molodoj,
Moj grustnyj tovarishch, makhaja krylom,
Krovavuju pishchu kljuet pod oknom.

Kljujot i brosajet, i smotrit v okno,
Kak budto so mnoju zadumal odno,
Zovjot menja vzgljadom i krikom svoim
I vymolvit' khochet: ,,Davaj uletim!

My vol'nye pticy; Pora, brat, pora!
Tuda, gde za tuchej belejet gora,
Tuda, gde sinejut morskije kraja,
Tuda, gde guljajem lish' veter... da ja!``
