Těžko sa mi oře (1920)

Part of a series or song cycle:

The Diary of One who Disappeared, (Zápisník zmizelého)

Těžko sa mi oře

Těžko sa mi oře, vyspal sem sa málo,
a gdyž sem odespal: o ní sa mi zdálo.
O ní sa mi zdálo.

Ploughing is weary work

Ploughing is weary work, without sleep to ease me,
for when I fell asleep, still in dreams
she’d tease me.
