Translation Singable translation by August von Viedert

Дуют ветры
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE GER
Дуют ветры, 
ветры буйные,
Ходят тучи, 
[тучи]1 тёмные.

Не видать в них 
света белого,
Не видать в них 
солнца красного.

Во сырой [мгле]2, 
за туманами,
Только ночка, 
лишь чернеется —

В эту пору 
непогожую
Одному жить —
сердцу холодно.

Грудь другую
Ему надобно:
Огонь-душу —
Красну девицу!

С ней зимою —
Лето тёплое;
При бездольи —
Горе — не горе!

R. Glière sets stanzas 1-4
M. Musorgsky sets stanzas 1-3, 1-2

Sturmeswinde
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Russian (Русский) 
Sturmeswinde durch die Lüfte weh'n,
dunkle Wolken hoch am Himmen geh'n,
nicht zu seh'n ist weißes Tageslicht,
nicht zu seh'n ist rother Sonnenschein

Durch den feuchten Nebelbrodem
schaut nur die grause, schwarze Nacht hervor
Bei solch' trüber schaudervoller Zeit
ist allein sein, einem Herzen kalt;

Brust an Brust sehnt es zu legen sich,
an das Gluthherz einer schönen Maid,
dann weht Winters warme Sommerluft,
und im Unheil ist auch Leid kein Leid!
