Arik Einstein - Erev shel Shoshanim (ערב של שושנים) (English translation)

Hebrew

Erev shel Shoshanim (ערב של שושנים)

ערב של שושנים
נצא נא אל הבוסתן
מור בשמים ולבונה
לרגלך מפתן.
 
לילה יורד לאט
ורוח שושן נושבה
הבה אלחש לך שיר בלאט
זמר של אהבה.
 
שחר הומה יונה
ראשך מלא טללים
פיך אל הבוקר, שושנה.
אקטפנו לי...

English translation

Evening of roses

Evening of roses
Let's go out to the grove
Myrrh, perfumes, and incense
Are a threshold at your feet.
 
The night falls slowly
A breeze of roses blows
Let me whisper a song to you quietly
A song of love.
 
At dawn, a dove is cooing
Your hair is filled with dew
Your lips to the morning are like a rose
I'll pick it for myself.
 
Translation Mine if no other Translation Source is given. Soon as a "Source" field with a weblink appears below, it is not my translation, but taken from another website.
------------------------------------------------------------
If you have corrections. i will consider them if they are made in a courteous way, including stanza and line, and what it is that needs to be replaced. If you only type one or two words into the comment box, without giving the location, I will simply ignore it.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Another option is you correct the entire song and paste it so I can in turn copypaste it, which is less work for me. You can also take my translation and make your own translation using mine as a basis.
------------------------------------------------------------
If you start a fight over commas, apostrophes, grammar, syntax, lower and upper case, english dialects that you don't understand cause your english is just too poor, as it has now happened for the last couple weeks constantly. I promise you soon as you start monkeying around and bossing me around with your comments that I can't delete. I will delete the translation instead. and Keep it on my computer where it belongs.
