by Charles Baudelaire (1821 - 1867)
Translation by Marina Ivanovna Tsvetaeva (1892 - 1941)

Étonnants voyageurs ! quelles nobles...
Language: French (Français) 
Étonnants voyageurs ! quelles nobles histoires
Nous lisons dans vos yeux profonds comme les mers !
Montrez-nous les écrins de vos riches mémoires,
Ces bijoux merveilleux, faits d'astres et d'éthers.

Nous voulons voyager sans vapeur et sans voile !
Faites, pour égayer l'ennui de nos prisons,
Passer sur nos esprits, tendus comme une toile,
Vos souvenirs avec leurs cadres d'horizons.

Dites, qu'avez-vous vu ?

Chudesnye plovcy! Chto za povestvovan'ja
Language: Russian (Русский)  after the French (Français) 
Chudesnye plovcy! Chto za povestvovan'ja
Vstajut iz vashikh glaz — bezdonneje morej!
Javite nam, raskryv larcy vospominanij,
Sokrovishcha, kakikh ne vidyval Nerej.

Umchite nas vperjod — bez parusa i para!
Javite nam (na l'ne natjanutykh kholstin
Tak nekogda ruka ocham javljala charu)
Videnija svoi, obramlennye v sin'.

Chto videli vy, chto?
