Maarja - Õnneseen (English translation)



Kas te teate - olen küll üks õnneseen ma!
Ah et miks või? Kohe teile selgeks teen ma.
Oma ema ükski lill ei ole näinud,
üle niidu käsikäes nad pole käinud.
Pilvelapsed ei saa ema kallistada -
tuul neid pillub igaühte oma rada.
Aga mina tunnen nagu pehmeid pilvi
enda ümber ema käsi, näen ta silmi.
Niidule ja metsa, trammile ja linna
käsi ema peos ma alati võin minna.
Kui vaid soovin - oma emmele teen pai ma,
sellepärast olengi üks õnneseen ma.

English translation


You know - I really am very lucky!
Oh, why? I'll explain it to you now.
No flower has seen its mother,
they have never crossed a meadow, holding hands.
Cloud-children can't hug their mother,
the wind is throwing each of them to a different direction.
But I feel - they're like soft clouds -
my mother's hands around me, I see her eyes.
To a meadow and forest, onto a tram and to town,
I can always go with my hand in mother's palm.
Whenever I wish to, I stroke my mommy's head,
that's why I am very lucky.

The same goes for reusing parts of my translations in your own (parallel) translations. Id est: it is forbidden. (If a translation is IYO slightly wrong, I'd be glad if commented or PMed.)
If you want to translate my translation into a third language or use it as a basis, you are welcome. Especially if you do it on this website. Just be so kind and mention it and me. :) You can also notify me (in addition, it would make me recheck my work and maybe find errors that you wouldn't copy then) but you don't have to.
Most of my translations are works in progress. One never knows when a revelation can strike. One word: recheck.

Author's comments:

Snow White's dwarf called Lucky is also called Õnneseen in Estonian.
For some reason, it's a compound of luck (õnn) and mushroom (seen).
