On na zapad gljadit — solnce k morju...
Language: Russian (Русский) 
On na zapad gljadit — solnce k morju spuskaetsja,
  Svetit po morju krasnym ognem.
On zastyl na skale — vetchij plašč razvevaetsja
  Ot cholodnogo vetra na nem.

Opirajas' na meč, on gljadit na bagrovuju
  Češuju bespredel'nych zybej.
No ne vidit on voln — tol'ko dumu surovuju
  Označajut izgiby brovej.

Dreven mir. On drevnej. Plašč Odina kak vretišče,
  Rža vekov — na železnom meče...
Černyj voron Chugin, skorbnoj Pamjati detišče,
  U nego na pleče.
