Rastvoril ja okno - stalo [grustno]1 ne v moč', -
    opustilsja pred nim na koleni,
i v lico mne pachnula vesennjaja noč'
    blagovonnym dychan'em sireni.

A vdali gde-to čudno [tak pel]2 solovej;
    ja vnimal emu s grust'ju glubokoj...
I s toskoju o rodine vspomnil svoej;
    ob otčizne ja vspomnil dalekoj,

Gde rodnoj solovej pesn' rodnuju poët
    i, ne znaja zemnych ogorčenij,
zalivaetsja celuju noč' naprolët
    nad dušistoju vetkoj sireni...
