Siren', 'Lilacs'

Poutru, na zare,
Po rasistoj trave,
Ya pajdu svezhym utrom
I v dushystuyu ten’,
Gde tesnitsya siren’,
Ya pojdu svoyo shchast’ye iskat’...
V zhizni shchast’ye odno
Mne najti suzhdeno,
I to shchast’ye v sireni zhyvyot;;
Na zelyonykh vetvyakh,
Na dushistykh kistyakh
Moyo bednoe shchast’ye tsvetyot...
