Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Ночной зефир
струит эфир,
  [Шумит,
  Бежит]1, 
Гвадалквивир.

Вот взошла луна златая,
Тише... чу... гитары звон...
[Вот]2 испанка молодая
Оперлася на балкон.

Ночной зефир 
Струит эфир,
  [Шумит,
  Бежит]1
Гвадалквивир.

[Скинь]3 мантилью, [ангел милый]4,
И явись, как яркий день!
Сквозь чугунные перилы
Ножку [дивную]5 продень!

Ночной зефир
Струит эфир,
  [Шумит,
  Бежит]1, 
Гвадалквивир.

A. Verstovsky sets stanzas 1, 4-5, 2-3

Nächtlicher Duft
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Russian (Русский) 
    Nächtlicher Duft
    Weht durch die Luft;
      Es saust,
      Es braust
    Der Guadalquivir.

Sieh, der Mond ist aufgegangen;
Leise, horch ... Guitarrenton .. .
Eine Maid in Jugendprangen
Steht gelehnt auf den Balkon.

    Nächtlicher Duft
    Weht durch die Luft;
      Es saust,
      Es braust
    Der Guadalquivir.

Nimm vom Nacken die Mantilla,
Wieder Tag uns auszugehn --
Schönstes Mädchen von Sevilla,
Laß Dein kleines Füßchen sehn!

    Nächtlicher Duft
    Weht durch die Luft;
      Es saust,
      Es braust
    Der Guadalquivir.
