by Ivan Zakharovich Surikov (1841 - 1880)

Verba
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Chodit veter, chodit bujnyj,
Po polju guljaet;
Na kraju dorogi verbu
Tonkuju lomaet.

Gnetsja, gnetsja sirotinka, -
Net dlja nej podpory;
Vjudu pole - točno more,
Ne okinut' vzory.

Solnce žžet ee lučami,
Doždik polivaet;
Bujnyj veter s goremyki
List'ja obryvaet.

Gnetsja, gnetsja sirotinka, -
Net dlja nej zaščity;
Vsjudu pole - točno more,
Kovylem pokryto.

Kto že, kto že sirotinku
V pole, na prostore -
Posadil zdes', pri doroge,
Na bedu, na gore?

Gnetsja, gnetsja sirotinka, -
Net dlja nej priveta;
Vsjudu pole - točno more,
More bez otveta.

Tak i ty, moja sirotka,
Kak ta verba v pole,
Vyrastaeš' bez priveta,
V goremyčnoj dole.
