Травы одеты перлами.
Где-то приветы
Грустные слышу,
Приветы милые...
Милая, где ты,
Милая!

Вечера светы ясные, 
Вечера светы красные
Руки воздеты:
Жду тебя,
Милая, где ты,
Милая?

Руки воздеты:
Жду тебя,
В струях
Леты смытую
Бледными Леты
струями...
Милая, где ты,
Милая!

À elle
Language: French (Français)  after the Russian (Русский) 
L'herbe s'habille de perles.
De quelque part des salutations
Tristes j'entends,
Chère salutation...
Chérie, où es-tu,
Chérie !

Dans les lumières brillantes du soir,
Dans les lumières rouges du soir...
Les mains levées :
Je t'attends,
Chérie, où es-tu,
Chérie !

Les mains levées :
Je t'attends,
Du flot
du Léthé lavée,
Du pâle Léthé
Le flot...
Chérie, où es-tu,
Chérie !
