Quando cadran le foglie e tu verrai
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Quando cadran le foglie e tu verrai
A cercar la mia croce in camposanto,
In un cantuccio la ritroverai
E molti fior le saran [nati]1 accanto.

Cògli [allora]2 pe' tuoi biondi capelli
I fiori nati [dal]3 mio cor. Son quelli

I canti che pensai [ma]1 che non scrissi,
Le parole d'amor che non ti dissi.

Когда, кружась, осенние листы
Language: Russian (Русский)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Когда, кружась, осенние листы
Усыпят наше бедное кладбище,
Там в стороне, где скрыли всё цветы,
Найди моё последнее жилище!

Тогда укрась чело венком живых цветов,
Из сердца моего возросших, им согретых.
То звуки песен, мною недопетых,
Любви моей не высказанных слов.
