Zvëzdy noč'ju vesennej nežnee
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Zvëzdy noč'ju vesennej nežnee, 
Solov'i ostorožnej pojut...
JA ljublju ėti tëmnye noči, 
Ėti zvëzdy, i klëny, i prud.

Ty, kak zvëzdy, čista i prekrasna... 
Radost' žizni vo vsem ja lovlju:
V zvezdnom nebe, v cvetach, v aromatach...
No tebja ja nežnee ljublju.

Liš' s toboju [odnoju ja sčastliv]1, 
I tebja ne zamenit [nikto]2:
Ty odna menja znaeš' i ljubiš' 
I odna ponimaeš' -- za čto!
