Russia is waging a disgraceful war on Ukraine. Stand With Ukraine!

Дерево (Derevo) (traducere în Engleză)

Дерево

Небесная река несёт свои тихие воды.
Проносятся века, секунды, минуты и годы.
И время в янтаре застывает тягучею каплей.
Погода в декабре. И елей мягкие лапы.
 
Я дерево. В моих ветвях гостят звёзды.
Я дерево. В моих корнях твои слёзы.
Я дерево. В моих лесах рыщут волки.
Я дерево.
 
Лиса или медведь пройдут меж моих ветвей.
И птицы будут петь, вернувшись из-за семи морей.
И зашумит листва, поднятая порывом ветра,
Зелёная трава, и мхи, и первоцветы.
 
Я дерево. В моих ветвях гостят звёзды.
Я дерево. В моих корнях твои слёзы.
Я дерево. В моих лесах рыщут волки.
Я дерево.
 
Я чувствую, миллиарды лёгких лапок трогающих мою кору.
Я знаю каждую белку, которая прячет свои орехи в моих дуплах.
Я слышу всех птиц, которые поют мне по утрам.
Я видел закаты тысяч королевств,
Я видел смерть храбрых воинов,
Я видел, как пахали эту землю трактора.
 
Я дерево. В моих ветвях гостят звёзды.
Я дерево. В моих корнях твои слёзы.
Я дерево. В моих лесах рыщут волки.
Я дерево.

Tree

Heavenly river carries it’s quiet waters.
Centuries go by, seconds, minutes, and years.
And time is suspended in a dense drop of amber.
Weather in December. And the soft limbs of conifers.
 
I am a tree. Stars sojourn in my branches.
I am a tree. My roots are fed by your tears.
I am a tree. Wolves prowl my forests.
I am a tree.
 
A fox or a bear may go through my branches.
And birds will sing having returned from the seven seas.
And leaves will rustle stirred by the gusts of wind,
Green grass, and moss, and daffodils.
 
I am a tree. Stars sojourn in my branches.
I am a tree. My roots are fed by your tears.
I am a tree. Wolves prowl my forests.
I am a tree.
 
I feel countless light hands touching my bark,
I know every squirrel that hides their nuts in my hollows,
I can hear all those birds that sing for me each morn.
I saw sunsets of a thousand kingdoms,
I saw the deaths of brave warriors,
I saw this earth furrowed by tractors.
 
I am a tree. Stars sojourn in my branches.
I am a tree. My roots are fed by your tears.
I am a tree. Wolves prowl my forests.
I am a tree.

I'm glad you found this song worthy to be translated. Wink smile I can't thank you enough for this excellent work.

I’m glad the wink didn’t come after the second sentence. 😀

Nah, I really liked it, haha. Sarcasm isn't my strongest point anyway. Regular smile

I love this song. I'm from America and came across it in a youtube video. Thank you for the translation, it helps me sing along. This song is one of my favorites, ever.
