Oh, there is white snow behind the woods.

A young Cossack went to the girl, and hostile people began gossiping.

And I [the girl] am not afraid of those gossips, oh! [defiantly]

When I meet my dear (Cossack) I am happy to speak with him.

Oh, behind the woods the sun is rising, the Cossack visits the girl every evening.
