Первое свидание
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Вот миновала разлука унылая,
пробил свидания час,
светлое, полное счастие, милая,
вновь наступило для нас.

Долго томилося, полно страдания, 
сердце твоё, но поверь:
дни одиночества, дни испытания
мы наверстаем теперь.

Нежные речи, любви выражения
вновь потекут без конца,
и во единое снова биение
наши сольются сердца!

Пусть сочетает созвучье единое
наши две души, и вновь,
словно весенняя песнь соловьиная,
наша воспрянет любовь!
