by Heinrich Heine (1797 - 1856)
Translation by Aleksey Yakovlevich Meisner (1807 - 1882)

Im Mondenglanze ruht das Meer
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Im Mondenglanze ruht das Meer,
die Wogen murmeln leise;
mir wird das Herz so bang und schwer,
ich denk der alten Weise,
der alten Weise, die uns singt
von den verlornen Städten,
wo aus dem Meeresgrunde klingt
Glockengeläut und Beten -
Das Läuten und das Beten, wißt,
wird nicht den Städten frommen,
denn was einmal begraben ist,
das kann nicht wiederkommen.

На небе полная луна
Language: Russian (Русский)  after the German (Deutsch) 
На небе полная луна,
И тихо шепчет море;
Опять душа моя грустна,
И в сердце тяжесть горя.

Я вспомнил песни старины
О городах забытых,
На дне морском, средь глубины,
Водой навеки скрытых.

Молитвы там, на дне, и звон,
Но это не поможет:
Кто был однажды погребен,
Восстать уже не может.
