Akh, polyn', polyn'‑trava
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Akh, polyn', polyn'-trava,
Ty gor'ka, kak zhizn' moja:
Nezavidna tvoja dolja,
Mezh cvetami v chistom pole
Ne ljubujutsja toboj
Krasny devicy vesnoj.

Rozam, landysham vsegda
Polyn' bednaja chuzhda,
I krasavicam v buket
Ne sorvut tvoj blednyj cvet!
Akh, polyn', polyn'-trava,
Ty gor'ka, kak zhizn' moja.

Tak i ja s mojej sud'boj
Redko skhozh,  polyn', s toboj:
Vsem ne nuzhen, vsem chuzhoj;
Ne najdu dushi rodnoj.
Akh, polyn', polyn'-trava,
Ty gor'ka, kak zhizn' moja.

Prezhde vremeni uvjal,
Dnej otradnykh ne vidal,
I teper' sredi ljudej
Ja zhivu s toskoj mojej.
Akh, polyn', polyn'-trava,
Ty gor'ka, kak zhizn' moja.

A kogda-to cvel i ja
V utro jasnoje vesnoj,
No, kak ty, tovarishch moj,
Skoshen gor'koju sud'boj.
Akh, polyn', polyn'-trava,
Ty gor'ka, kak zhizn' moja.
