Po polju je kiša pala


Po polju je kiša pala

Po polju je kiša pala
Kiša rosulja.
Na devojci ništa nema,
Samo košulja...

Tanana je košuljica,
Uzvodilja bela,
Provide se bela nedra,
Ko dva sunca da su vedra,
Pa su me zanela,
Pa su me zanela!

Tankom stazom pođe amo:
"Hodi sunce ogrejano,
Hodi dušo, hodi!"
Al' to staza brže čula,
Nalevo se obrnula
U šumu vodi...

Oj stazice grabljivice,
Ti ostala pusta!
Nu, tako mi vere moje,
Stignuću vas obadvoje
Jer je šuma gusta,
A slatka su, medena su
Devojačka usta.

A Fairy From The Sun-Shower

[When the Servians see the sun-rays of a summer shower they 
say it is the fairies combing their hair.] 

OVER the meadow a shower is roaming ; 
Just beyond is the summer sun ; 
Fair is the hair that the fays are combing 
Myth come true ! here 's my dainty one 
Tripping the path in the wind's soft blowing ; 
Her slender form through her gown is showing, 
Her foot scarce whispers the way she 's going. 
" Come, my bright one, come, my soul, 
Let my kisses be your goal." 

But the path has heard my sighing, 
Turns aside, and leads my fay 
Into the forest, love defying. 
Path, accursed be ! but stay ! 
Lost to love each moment gliding, 
What if in the woodland hiding 
Still for me my fay be biding ! . . . 
" Wait, my bright one, wait, my soul, 
Your sweet kisses are my goal."
