Kevadpäike, ära looju veel ('Spring sun, do not set yet') (1958)


Part of a series or song cycle:

Nukrad Viivud (Sorrowful Moments)


Kevadpäike, ära looju veel ('Spring sun, do not set yet')

Kevadpäike, ära looju veel!
Puud me kohal õrnus hiirekõrvus,
Miskit hella, seistes jalgteel kõrvu,
Tahaks öelda lahkumise eel.
Kevadpäike, ära looju veel!
Kaselõhnaline tuul meid puhub,
Sinu kätt mu käsi pika puhu
Tahaks hoida lahkumise eel.
Kevadpäike, ära looju veel!
Linnud vidistavad tuhatkeelselt,
Sulle pika pilgu avameelselt
Tahan heita lahkumise eel.

Spring Sun do not set yet

Spring Sun, do not set yet!
Fragile trees with budding leaves above us,
Standing together on the footpath,
Let me say something tender before leaving.
Spring Sun do not set yet!
Birch-fragrant breezes caress us,
Let my hand hold yours
For a long while before parting.
Spring Sun, do not set yet!
The birds are chirping in a thousand languages,
Let me openly cast on you
A long gaze before parting.
