Language: Russian (Русский) 
On na zapad glyadit — solnce k moryu spuskaetsya,
  Svetit po moryu krasny'm ognem.
On zasty'l na skale — vetxij plashh razvevaetsya
  Ot xolodnogo vetra na nem.

Opirayas` na mech, on glyadit na bagrovuyu
  Cheshuyu bespredel`ny'x zy'bej.
No ne vidit on voln — tol`ko dumu surovuyu
  Oznachayut izgiby' brovej.

Dreven mir. On drevnej. Plashh Odina kak vretishhe,
  Rzha vekov — na zheleznom meche...
Cherny'j voron Xugin, skorbnoj Pamyati detishhe,
  U nego na pleche.
