Vperedi bol'šak, podvoda.
Staryj pes u kolesa, -
Vperedi opjat' svoboda,
Step', prostor i nebesa.

No pritvorščica otstala,
Lovko semečki gryzet,
Govorit, čto v serdce žalo,
Jad gorjučij uneset.

Govorit... A čto ž igraet
Jarkij ugol'nyj zračok?
Solncem, zolotom sijaet,
No besstrasten i dalëk.

Skol'ko jubok! Nogu strojno
Oblegaet bašmačok.
Stan struitsja bespokojno,
I žemčužna smuglost' ščëk...

Vperedi bol'šak, podvoda,
Staryj pes u kolesa,
Sčast'e, molodost', svoboda,
Solnce, stepi, nebesa.
