Available translation(s): FRE
Сад весь в цвету, вечер в огне,
Так освежительно, радостно мне!
Вот я стою, вот я иду,
Словно таинственной речи я жду..

Эта заря, эта весна
Так непостижна, зато так ясна...
Счастья ли полн, плачу ли я, -
Ты благодатная тайна моя!

Le jardin est en fleur
Language: French (Français)  after the Russian (Русский) 
Le jardin est en fleurs, le soir est en feu,
Ainsi rafraîchie, je suis heureuse !
Je reste ici, je vais là,
Comme si j'attendais une voix mystérieuse...

Ce coucher de soleil, ce printemps
Sont si incompréhensibles, mais si clairs...
Pleine de bonheur, ou de pleurs, --
Tu es mon mystère béni !
