Begljanka
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Karknul voron na bereze,
Svistnul voin na kone.
Pogibat' tebe, krasotka,
V chuzhedal'noj storone.

Akh! Zachem, zachem bezhala
Ty za tridevjat' polej?
Dlja chego ne razmyshljala
Ty ob uchasti svojej?

Vse pokinula, zabyla:
Prakh otca, starushku mat';
I reshilasja otchiznu
Na chuzhbinu promenjat'.

To li schast'e, chtoby ochi
Milym serdcu veselit',
Posle imi zh dni i nochi
Bezotradno slezy lit'?

Neuzhel' ty ne slykhala,
Ob izmene nikogda?
Neuzhl' ty polagala
V serdce vernost' navsegda!

Bylo nekomu, bednjazhku,
Pouchit' menja umu,
I golodnoj vol'noj ptashkoj
Ja popalas' v set' k nemu.

Nikogo ja ne sprosila,
Krome serdca svojego:
Uvidala, poljubila…
I umru, ljubja jego!

Karknul voron na bereze,
Svistnul voin na kone.
I krasotka pogibajet
V chuzhedal'noj storone.
