Language: Russian (Русский) 
Vsyo temnej i kudryavej berezovy'j les zeleneet;
Kolokol`chiki landy'shej v chashhe zelenoj czvetut;
Na rassvete v dolinax teplom i cheremuxoj veet,
    Solov`i do rassveta poyut.

Skoro [Troicy'n den`]1, skoro pesni, venki i pokosy'...
Vsyo czvetet i poyot, molody'e nadezhdy' taya...
O, vesennie zori i teply'e majskie rosy'!
    O dalekaya yunost` moj!
