Zvyozdy' noch`yu vesennej nezhnee, Solov`i ostorozhnej poyut... YA lyublyu e`ti tyomny'e nochi, E`ti zvyozdy', i klyony', i prud. Ty', kak zvyozdy', chista i prekrasna... Radost` zhizni vo vsem ya lovlyu: V zvezdnom nebe, v czvetax, v aromatax... No tebya ya nezhnee lyublyu. Lish` s toboyu [odnoyu ya schastliv]1, I tebya ne zamenit [nikto]2: Ty' odna menya znaesh` i lyubish` I odna ponimaesh` -- za chto!
