Puteshestvennik
Language: Russian (Русский) 
1 Dnej moix eshhyo vesnoyu
Otchij dom pokinul ya,
Vse zaby'to by'lo mnoyui 
Semejstvo, i druz`ya.

V rize strannika ubogoj, 
S detskoj v serdce prostotoj,
YA poshyol putem-dorogoj -
Vera by'l vozhaty'j moj.

2. I v nadezhde, v uveren`e
Put` kazalsya nedalek.
-- Strannik, -- sly'shalos`, -- terpen`e!
Pryamo, pryamo na vostok.

Ty' uvidish` xram chudesny'j, 
Ty' v svyatilishhe vojdesh` ;
Tam v netlennosti nebesnoj
Vse zemnoe obretesh`.

3. Utro vecherom smenyalos`,
Vecher utru ustupal ;
Neizvestnoe skry'valos` ;
YA iskal -- ne obretal.

Tam vstrechalis` mne puchiny' ;
Zdes` vy'sokix gor xrebty' ;
YA vzbiralsya na stremniny' ;
Chrez potoki stlal mosty'. 

4. V drug reka peredo mnoyu --
Vod sklonen`e na vostok ;
Vizhu zy'blemy'j strueyu
Podle berega chelnok.

YA v nadezhde, ya v smyaten`e
Predayu sebya volnam :
Schast`e vizhu v otdalen`e ;
Vse, chto milo, mnitsya, tam !

5. Ax !  V bezvestnom okeane
Ochutilsya moj chelnok ;
Dal` po-prezhnemu v tumane ;
Breg nevidim i dalek.

I voveki nado mnoyu
Ne sol`etsya, kak podnes`,
Nebo svetloe s zemleyu ...
Tam ne budet vechno zdes`.
