Rainspell (Vihmaloits)

Mine üle, vihmakene, (x2)
vihmakene, vellekene, (x2)
ooekene, omatsekene, (x2)
saokene, sõsarakene! (x2)
Teed mo likes - ma ligene, (x2)
teed mo märjäs - ma mädäne. (x2)
Ei ole esä tare tennü (x2)

võõras kivi kergitenu, (x2)
võõras saina saisma pannu, (x2)
võõras kivi kergitenu. (x2)1

English translation


Pass, dear rain
dear rain, brother
dear shower, one of my own
dear rainfall, sister
You make me sodden, I soak
You make me wet, I rot
My father didn't make a house
and my brother didn't marry me off
1a stranger made my corner
a stranger lifted the rocks
a stranger made the wall stand
a stranger lifted the rocks
  • 1. I'm not very sure about the meaning from here on, only somewhat but that is still quite a lot Regular smile
All translations are protected by copyright law. Copying and publishing on other websites or in other media, even with the source link, is not allowed without a written permission of the author.
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.

You see, for the spell to work you need to impersonate an orphan.
