Vsled molodoj zare (Following the Young Dawn)

TSarya nebes vzor ognevoj
Lyod obratil zhivoj vodoj

I s zaryoj
YA sproshu eyo –
Gde iskat' schast'e,
Schast'e moyo?
V otvet – smekh,
Tonok talyj sneg,
I poyot
duh veshnih vod:

Mezh polej,
Gde zvenit ruchej,
Deva rassveta
Bregom idyot
Vsled za nej
Ptich'ya l'yotsya trel',
Po sledam podsnezhnik tsvetyot

Zolotoj zhar, vody glotok
Rastopil lyod moih trevog,

I poyot
mne duh veshnih vod:
Devu rassveta
Vstret' u vorot!

Posmotri –
Smekh mladoj zari
Probuzhdaet
Silu zemli.

Mezh polej,
Gde zvenit ruchej,
Deva rassveta
Bregom idyot
Vsled za nej
Ptich'ya l'yotsya trel',
Po sledam podsnezhnik tsvetyot


***

I poyu
YA vosled ruch'yu –
Uznayu radost',
Radost' moyu

I poyot
Sledom za ruch'yom
Deva rassveta
V serdtse moyom

Mezh polej,
Gde zvenit ruchej,
Deva rassveta
Bregom idyot
Vsled za nej
Ptich'ya l'yotsya trel',
Po sledam podsnezhnik tsvetyot.


Translation

King of heaven’s fierce gaze
Turned ice into the water of life

And with the dawn
I will ask her
Where to look for happiness,
My happiness?
In response I’ll get laughter
Melting snow is thin,
And it sings,
The spirit of vernal waters:

Between the fields,
Where creek is ringing,
Maiden of the dawn 
Walks along the shore
Following her
Bird's trill pours,
In her wake snowdrops bloom

Golden glow, a sip of water
Melted the ice of my worries,

And it sings to me, 
The spirit of vernal waters:
Maiden of the Dawn
Meet at the gate!

Look,
The laughter of the young dawn
Awakens
The power of the earth.

Between the fields,
Where creek is ringing,
Maiden of the dawn 
Walks along the shore
Following her
Bird's trill pours,
In her wake snowdrops bloom

*** 

And I sing
Following the stream -
I recognize the joy,
My joy

And she sings
Following the stream,
Maiden of the dawn,
In my heart

Between the fields,
Where creek is ringing,
Maiden of the dawn 
Walks along the shore
Following her
Bird's trill pours,
In her wake snowdrops bloom.
