Vljubljon ja, deva-krasota ('I'm in love, beautiful maiden')

Vljubljon ja, deva-krasota ('I'm in love, beautiful maiden')

Vljubljon ja, deva-krasota,
V tvoj razgovor, zhivoj i strastnyj,
V tvoj golos, angelskij prekrasnyj,
V tvoi rumjanye usta.
Daj mne toboj ljubovat'sja,
Naslushat'sja tvoikh rechej,
Upit'sja pesneju tvojej,
Tvoim dykhan'em nadyshat'sja!

I'm in love, beautiful maiden

I’m in love, beautiful maiden,
With the lively and passionate way you talk,
With your voice, as lovely as an angel’s,
With your rosy lips.
Let me admire you,
Delight in what you have to say,
Drink in your songs,
And breathe in your breath!
