"У Талых Снегов Спроси Наши Имена"

Русь моя древняя,
Песни печальные,
Скорбь твоя дремлет
В озерах кристальных.

Дебри дремучие,
Снегом укрытые,
Там вновь оживают
Сказки забытые.

Реки студеные,
Чащи бескрайние,
Где в сумраке скрыты
Требища тайные.

Даль непроглядная,
Hочи туманные,
Призраки прошлого,
Тени печальные.

Имена позабытые
Водами талыми,
Крови славянской,
Потоками алыми,

Снегопадами вечными,
Ветрами хладными,
Стужею лютой
И страхами стали...


(translation from russian, written on the original booklet)

My ancient Rus',
Your sad songs,
And your sorrow, I know
Is hidden in these crystal lakes.

Forests so thick
Snows so deep
Where the legends forgotten
Breath again.

Rivers so cold
Woods are eternal
Where in twilight
Ancient Pagan temples are hidden.

Distances so unsightful,
Nights so obscure,
The ghosts of the past,
Sad silent shadows.

Their forgotten names are turned
Into the melted snows
Into the streams of Slavonic blood
So pure and red.

Into the endless snowfalls,
Into the winds so cold,
Into the frost so cruel,
Into the ancient fears...
Eternally...
