Grust' devushki
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Otchego, skazhi,
Moj ljubimyj serp,
Pochernel ty ves',
Chto kosa moja?

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

V shirokikh stepjakh
Dona [tikhova]2
Zelena trava
Davno skoshena;

Na sele koscy
Davno zhenjatsja
Tol'ko net jego,
Jasna sokola!

Il' on brosil dom,
Razljubil menja,
I ne pridjot uzh
K svojej device?...3

Ne k dobru zh toska
Davit belu grud',
[Akh]4, ne k radosti
Plakat' khochetsja.
