Rachmaninoff: Lilacs (Siryen)

  1. Rachmaninoff: Lilacs (Siryen) -:-- / -:--

with Linda Osborn, piano


At morning, at dawn,
On dewy grass,
I will go to breathe in the fresh morning.

In the fragrant shade,
where lilacs cluster,
I will go to seek my happiness.

In life, only happiness
am I fated to find.
And that happiness grows in lilacs.

On green branches,
In fragrant clusters,
My small happiness blooms.
