by Heinrich Heine (1797 - 1856)
Translation by Apollon Nikolayevich Maykov (1821 - 1897)

Инеем снежным, как ризой, покрыт
Language: Russian (Русский)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Инеем снежным, как ризой, покрыт,
Кедр одинокий в пустыне стоит.
Дремлет, могучий, под песнями вьюги,
Дремлет и видит — на пламенном юге
Стройная пальма растёт и, с тоской,
Смотрит на север его ледяной.
