Vsë temnej i kudrjavej berezovyj les zeleneet; Kolokol'čiki landyšej v čašče zelenoj cvetut; Na rassvete v dolinach teplom i čeremuchoj veet, Solov'i do rassveta pojut. Skoro [Troicyn den']1, skoro pesni, venki i pokosy... Vsë cvetet i poët, molodye nadeždy taja... O, vesennie zori i teplye majskie rosy! O dalekaja junost' moj!
