by Ivan Zakharovich Surikov (1841 - 1880)

Verba
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Xodit veter, xodit bujny'j,
Po polyu gulyaet;
Na krayu dorogi verbu
Tonkuyu lomaet.

Gnetsya, gnetsya sirotinka, -
Net dlya nej podpory';
Vyudu pole - tochno more,
Ne okinut` vzory'.

Solnce zhzhet ee luchami,
Dozhdik polivaet;
Bujny'j veter s goremy'ki
List`ya obry'vaet.

Gnetsya, gnetsya sirotinka, -
Net dlya nej zashhity';
Vsyudu pole - tochno more,
Kovy'lem pokry'to.

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

Gnetsya, gnetsya sirotinka, -
Net dlya nej priveta;
Vsyudu pole - tochno more,
More bez otveta.

Tak i ty', moya sirotka,
Kak ta verba v pole,
Vy'rastaesh` bez priveta,
V goremy'chnoj dole.
