On na zapad gljadit — solnce k morju...
Language: Russian (Русский) 
On na zapad gljadit — solnce k morju spuskajetsja,
  Svetit po morju krasnym ognem.
On zastyl na skale — vetkhij plashch razvevajetsja
  Ot kholodnogo vetra na nem.

Opirajas' na mech, on gljadit na bagrovuju
  Cheshuju bespredel'nykh zybej.
No ne vidit on voln — tol'ko dumu surovuju
  Oznachajut izgiby brovej.

Dreven mir. On drevnej. Plashch Odina kak vretishche,
  Rzha vekov — na zheleznom meche...
Chernyj voron Khugin, skorbnoj Pamjati detishche,
  U nego na pleche.
