Grust' devuški
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Otčego, skaži,
Moj ljubimyj serp,
Počernel ty ves',
Čto kosa moja?

Il' obryzgan ty,
V skuke-goresti,
Po [milu družku]1
Slezoj devič'ej?

V širokich stepjach
Dona [tichova]2
Zelena trava
Davno skošena;

Na sele koscy
Davno ženjatsja
Tol'ko net ego,
Jasna sokola!

Il' on brosil dom,
Razljubil menja,
I ne pridët už
K svoej device?...3

Ne k dobru ž toska
Davit belu grud',
[Ach]4, ne k radosti
Plakat' chočetsja.
