Alexander Dargomizhsky (1813 - 1869)
The girl and the youth
Words by Alexander Pushkin (1799 - 1837)
Song text translation:
Sobbing bitterly, a jealous maiden was
scolding a youth. Inclining on her shoulder,
The youth suddenly began to drowse.
The maiden fell silent, nursing his light slumber,
and smiled at him, shedding calm tears, and
she smiled at him, shedding calm tears.
