I thought, a trees in a snow-white flowers, Rasul Gamzatov

* * *
I thought, a trees in a snow-white flowers,
And has more close approached – a trees in a snow are.
I thought, you will be loving and gentle,
I have got error, and I can not leave.

I have rushed by a mountain country tracks.
And burka I did not take, and in a gorges the rains going.
My darling, my ice cooling,
Tell to me what do to do, ask warm, spare me!

N.Grebeneva's transfer

* * *
Я думал, деревья в цвету белоснежном,
А ближе подъехал - деревья в снегу.
Я думал, ты любящей будешь и нежной,
Попал я впросак, а уйти не могу.

Помчался я тропами горного края.
И бурку не взял, а в ущельях дожди.
Моя дорогая, моя ледяная,
Скажи мне, что делать, согрей, пощади!
