OF MIGRANT BIRDS
Dear flock of birds on the tuft of an old forest!
And herd of wild horses on a dried field, the dearest!
Be awakened right now !
Listen to the twitters and words hastened sound
Keep going on your way
Go for a day
Or even for life
Bring away things unfinished
And step on a way, the illimited
Nothing will be complete
For a joy†
Oh, oneís heart!
Bloodís† red for ever†
For ever† affection and love
Why for the whole hundred of years
On Fatherland with enmity and hatred?
On Motherland with disgrace and humiliation
Pain and ungratefulness?
Alas ! my dear beloved
Hundred of thousand times for love and fondness
The whirligig of time had broken our† peaceful earth†
That passed timesíre unalbe fading the past
so my heart is† on summit of the pain
so my heart still has hundreds of thousand words to say again
so my love still has hundreds of thousand matters for fondness
Being over head and ears in love, suffering† and delight endless
Throw your soul upon the peak of melancholy
Drink the morn dews of the sky frozen and misty
If you keep silence as an acceptance
If you step on the path of pre-destiny
Thereís† nothing to say absolutely
For living† a life to lead away
And piles up tiresomeness upon plans to future days
Get a drink!
Empty the regret, sorrow, incomplete love†
Think of any reunification
the eager hope for
Forget temporarily the days of pain and humiliation
In order to be in love one another
The Sky gonna be sunny
the wild forest gonna grow up new woods and trees
the migrant birds will be back their homes
The D day will come and the sun gonna rise
Be in a hurry to awaken, dear Mankind!
