Kosmikud - Kuidas tuli pimedus mu tuppa (English translation)

English translation

How Darkness Came to My Room

How did darkness come to my room?
It came quietly, came silently.
It closed the lights, curtains and a window,
turned the birdsong down.
 
How did darkness come to my room?
It came quietly, came silently.
If got a paintbrush from the stars,
drew the shadows onto the walls and floor.
 
Whom did darkness invite to my room?
Whom did it take along today?
It invited sadness and death,
sleep apologised and left.
 
That's how the town got silent behind my window
Some single sound from yesterday
had wandered astray to my room
and wouldn't calm down.
 
Shoe-clacks, tyre's susurrus,
a lonely shout, some talks,
door-bang and laughter's swish,
a quiet scream and cry.
 
Whom did darkness invite to my room?
Whom did it take along today?
It invited sadness and death,
sleep apologised and left.
