    "Липа вековая" - Another great poem!

    Another great song I heard (this time from Devyatov), another one that displays suffering. Can someone check my translation (it is not meant to be a rendering)?

    "Липа вековая"
    The perpetual lime-tree

    Липа вековая
    Над рекой шумит
    Песня удалая
    Вдалеке звенит

    The perpetual limetree
    Rustles over the river
    A daring song
    Sounds from a far

    Луг покрыт туманом
    Словно пеленой
    Слышен за курганом
    Звон сторожевой

    The meadow is covered by fog
    Just like the altar-cloth
    One can hear from the burial mound
    The sound of the guard

    Этот звон унылый
    Давно прошлых дней
    Пробудил, что было
    В памяти моей

    This gloomy sound
    Of long past days
    Awoke all that was
    In my memory

    Вот все миновало
    Я уж под венцом
    Молодца сковали
    Золотым кольцом

    All flashed by me
    When I was under the wreath
    When the couple forged
    A golden ring

    Только не с тобою
    Милая моя
    Спишь ты под землею
    Спишь из-за меня

    But not with you
    My dearest darling
    You are sleeping beneath me
    You are sleeping because of me

    Над твоей могилой
    Соловей поёт
    Скоро и твой милый
    Тем же сном уснёт

    Over your tombstone
    The nightingale sings
    Soon your darling will also
    Sleep the same dream

    Ah, how I love Russian poetry!!!

    Слова и музыка народные. Я думаю, в твоём переводе есть ошибки. Где Дима?

    The age-old lime tree

    The age-old lime tree
    Is rustling over the river
    A daring song
    Is jingling far off

    The meadow is covered by fog
    Like by a shroud
    One can hear from the burial mound
    The sound of the guard-bell

    This gloomy chime
    Of the bygone days
    Awoke all that was
    In my memory

    The time has gone by so fast
    Now I'm on the point of wedding
    The brave is chained
    With a golden ring

    But not with you,
    Dearest darling,
    You are sleeping belowground
    Because of me

    Over your tombstone
    The nightingale sings
    Soon your darling will also
    Sleep the same dream

    Life is great and so are you

    and it was his fault! Perhaps once she opened her feelings but was denied! Poor cruel man - now (when he turned towards his just happened wife to follow the phrase : You both may kiss each other...") he suddenly realized how deeply wrong he was then, when he refused his true love !


    No - you guessed wrong, it's only a play of imagination and not my own experiense
    Я так думаю.
