island Hvar /otok Hvar





Islanders' Ballad
We live from the sea, nets and knots
Counting the blisters made from the oars and hoes
 our eyes red from the nights and the tears
our workers' hands as hard as stone

We're beaten by the storms and the rains
and every day bend closer to the ground
and yet more than anything, more than any beauty
we love the sea for as long as we live

Our blue sea, you know all our desires
You are our streght, our joy, our entire life

We're counting the sails and the steamships,
our days passing with northern and southern winds,
the barren earth gives what it can give,
Life on the island is both sorrow and joy...

(*song performed by Vice Vukov, written in Dalmatian dialect, translated by me)

Bodulska balada
Živi se od mora, od mriža i uza
Brojidu se žuji od vesla, mašklina
Crljene su oči od noći i suza
Žujave nan ruke su tvrde ka stina
I tučedu nas nevere i kiše
I svaki dan smo zgrbljeni sve više
Ipak više od sveg i od svih lipota
Cilega života mi volimo more
More naše plavo, sve nam želje znaš
Ti si snaga, srića, cili život naš
Brojimo sva jidra i bile vapore
Prolazidu dani uz bure i juga
Škrta zemja daje sve ono ča more
Život je na škoju i radost i tuga.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.
