Why did the sun go down so early [ Satshem Solntze Rana Pala (Зачем Солнце Рано Пало) ]

Russian

Satshem Solntze Rana Pala (Зачем Солнце Рано Пало)

Зачем солнце рано пало,
На дворе густой туман.
Ретивое задрожало
Сердце, чувствует обман.
 
Уезжал дружок, прощались,
В бричку капала слеза.
Мы не знали, что прощаясь,
Расстаёмся навсегда.
 
(интерлюдия)
 
Солнце встанет, снег растает,
Травой горе порастёт.
Никто травушку не скосит,
Муравую не пожнёт.
 
Зачем солнце рано пало,
На дворе густой туман...

Why did the sun go down so early

Why did the sun go down so early
Thick fog covers the courtyard
And fiercely trembling
The heart feels betrayed
 
My friend was leaving, we bade farewell
And a tear dropped into my wicker basket
We didn't know that when parting ways
We would part forever
 
(INTERLUDE)
 
The sun will rise, the snow will melt
The grass will grow with woe
Noone will mow the thick grass
And pick it up
 
Why did the sun go down so early
Thick fog covers the courtyard....

"муравую" - is an adjective, not a noun:) "трава муравая" means "thick green grass"

Just a small correction - "Уезжал дружок, прощались" means "My friend was leaving, we bid farewell to each other"
