From Grandma’s Album… Zeleny Hajove (Green Woodlands) One of her favorite songs
A Czech folk song.
Zeleny hajove. Oh, green woodlands,
Bejvaly ste me moje, You were once a great comfort to me.
Bejvaly ste meho srdce You comforted my heart.
Propteseni. For consolation.
Ale ted delsi cas, But now lately on the horizon,
Neslysim ptacky hlas, I do not hear a bird call.
Na obloze se uk azel On the horizon appears
Smutny cas. A sadder time.
Ten venecek zeleny, That wreath, so verdant green,
Zrosmaric pleteny, Woven with rosemary.
Ten my dala moje mila My love gave to me
Propoteseni. For consolation.
