"The Little Humpbacked Horse (Konyok-Gorbunok)" - 1.

Past the woods and mountains steep,
Past the rolling waters deep,
You will find a hamlet pleasant
Where once dwelt an aged peasant.
Of his sons-and he had three...

За горами, за лесами,
За широкими морями,
Против неба – на земле
Жил старик в одном селе.
У старинушки три сына...

Quoth his horse:
"Yes, you're quite right.
And you very well may stare!
That's a Fire-Bird's feather there!
But, Ivan, for your own sake,
Touch it not, for in its wake
Many sorrows, many woes
Follow everywhere it goes."

Говорит ему конёк:
"Вот уж есть чему дивиться!
Тут лежит перо Жар-птицы,
Но для счастья своего
Не бери себе его.
Много, много непокою
Принесёт оно с собою".
