Сергей Рахманинов

По утру, на заре,
По росистой траве,
Я пойду свежим утром дышать;
И в душистую тень,
Где теснится сирень,
Я пойду своё счастье искать...

В жизни счастье одно
Мне найти суждено,
И то счастье в сирени живёт;
На зелёных ветвях,
На душистых кистях
Моё бедное счастье цветёт.

English translation

"The Lilacs"
Sergei Rachmaninoff

At the red of the dawn,
O'er the dew spangled lawn,
Where I meet the new day like a kiss,
In the sweet, fragrant shade
Br the lilac trees made,
There I wander in search of my bliss…

For one joy, one alone,
Fate has given as mine own,
And it dwells in yon fair lilac bow'r
In its bright branches green
In its thick, perfumed screen-
There my one poor lost joy breaks in flow'r
