Spring
By Eunice Tietjens, trans.
 
From “Modern Greek Popular Songs”
From Antonin Proust’s French version

SLEEP no more, my heart! March and May are come; the swallows return; and the doves, two and two, descend to the fountain.
Yesterday, returning from the isles, I passed before her window. She was watering her basil, she was giving to drink to her flower of mint.
She cut a spray of basil, she cut a flower of mint; and she gave them me.
Sleep no more, my heart! March and May are come; the swallows return; and the doves, two and two, descend to the fountain.
