Smolkni, ptashka‑kanarejka
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Smolkni, ptashka-kanarejka!
Polno zvonko raspevat',
Perestan' ty mne, zlodejka,
Retivoje nadryvat'!

Uzh ko mne ne vorotit'sja
Krasnym dnjam vesny mojej!..
Otvykajet serdce bit'sja,
Vspominajuchi o nej!

Radost'-mladost' minovalas',
Otcvela ona cvetkom,
I ne vikhorem promchalas',
Proporkhnula motyl'kom!..

S neju pamjat' o byvalom
Ja khotel pokhoronit',
Ne grustit' o nem nimalo,
Ni slezy ne uronit'!

Vse davno zabyto bylo;
Zvonkoj pesenkoj svojej
Vse ty snova razbudila,
Ptashka, ljutyj moj zlodej!

Posle vedryshka k nenast'ju
Tjazhelen'ko privykat',
A neschastnomu ob schast'e
Khuzhe smerti vspominat'!...
