Devushka pela
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Devushka pela v cerkovnom khore
O vsekh ustalykh v chuzhom kraju,
O vsekh korabljakh, ushedshikh v more,
O vsekh zabyvshikh radost' svoju.

Tak pel jejo golos letjashchij v kupol,
I luch sijal na belom pleche,
I kazhdyj iz mraka smotrel i slushal,
Kak beloje plat'e pelo v luche.

I vsem kazalos', chto radost' budet,
Chto v tikhoj zavodi vse korabli,
Chto na chuzhbine ustalye ljudi
Svetluju zhizn' sebe obreli.

I golos byl sladok, i luch byl tonok,
I tol'ko vysoko u carskikh vrat 
Prichastnyj tajnam, plakal rebjonok
O tom, chto nikto ne pridjot nazad.
