Gordana Ivanjek - Oko jedne hiže (English translation)

Croatian (Kajkavian dialect)

Oko jedne hiže

Pred tobom su steze trudne i daleke
Celu noć buš išel bledi moj pajdaš
Al videl buš vrbe prignutge znad reke
Budeš čul kak zvezde padaju med šaš
 
Oko jedne hiže navek tići lete
Kresnica na coklu celu noć blešći
Tam te bude zemla zibala kak dete
Tam v zelenoj zipki domovina spi
 
I nemoj mi reći da zabadav išćeš
Da je se to vmrlo da vre ničeg ni
Jednu slanu zvezdu spusti na dvorišće
Pak si zapopevaj morti se zbudi

Around a house

In front of you are pats, tired and long
You will walk all night, my pale buddy,
But you will see willows bend over river
You will hear stars falling down to sedge.
 
Around a house birds are always flying,
The light on base shines all night,
The soil will always swing you as a baby,
There in green cradle sleeps your homeland.
 
And don’t tell me that you are searching in vain,
That all has died, there is nothing left,
Drop a salty star on the ground,
And then sing loud out, maybe it will wake up.
