16. Ha Widźuli Ptačata Ćahnyć - An Autumn Thought

16. Ha widźuli ptačata ćahnyć
(Easter, Autumn, Nature)

Written by Handrij Zejler

Music: Animato

1. Ha widźu-li pta-ča-ta ća-hnyć,
hdy li-sćo-wy oł-ći so tom,
chce my-slič-ka so-bu so kra-dnyć,
we hwě-zdach oak pyta swj dom,
we hwě-zdach pak pyta swj dom.

2. Ha widźu-li mrčelow ćahi
ka sony puć pod njebjom jěć,
hdy łuka je płowa, hajk nahi,
chce myslička křidła te měć,
chce myslička křidła te měć.

3. Ha widźu-li k zemi so niić,
spać kwětku tu poslednju hić,
chce myslička k hwězdam so bliić,
tam pokoja rleko pić,
tam pokoja rleko pić.

4. Hdźe, myslička, statok swj staji,
ty njeměrna podrnica?
Tam horka, tam z radosću praji:
Nětk, nětk sym ja spokojena!
Nětk, nětk sym ja spokojena!

16. An Autumn Thought

Translation and lyrics by Gerald Stone

1. Whenever I see the birds turning,
As yellows the leaf on the tree,
A thought steals away with them, yearning
For its home in the stars, to be free.

2. Whenever I see the clouds sailing,
Like dreams moving under the sky,
The pasture is pale, the grove ailing,
Then my thought longs for wings for to fly.

3. Whenever I see softly bending
The last flower, as to sleep now it goes,
My thought soars through stars never-ending,
Till it drinks at the well of repose.

4. Will you, wandering thought, find a harbour?
Will you ever relinquish your quest?
There above the blue sky will you murmur
Here at last I have entered my rest?
