Waves of Happiness
 
Oh Wind,
Scatter the gunpowder
and on your cloud lined wing,
carry the peace bearing messenger dove
To friendly shores
 
Into the singing silence
Spread waves of light
and essence of blossoming citrus with,
a heart warming gust of compassion.
Ripe is our Earth, quench our thirst
Bring a rain, rain of salvation, salvation seed’s passion.
 
Oh Wind,
Scatter the gunpowder
and on your cloud lined wing,
carry the snow white messenger dove
To friendly shores
 
Oh Wind,
Scatter the gunpowder
and on your cloud lined wing,
carry the peace bearing messenger dove
To friendly shores
 
English translated by Ernest Samuel Llime
 
 
 
גַּלִּים שֶׁל אוֹרָה / אֲבִיבָה גּוֹלָן
 
רוּחַ
פַּזְּרִי אֶת אָבָק הַשְּׂרֵפָה
וְעַל עֲנָנִים קַלֵּי נוֹצָה,
שְׂאִי בִּכְנָפֵךְ אֶת יוֹנַת הַשָּׁלוֹם
צְחוֹרָה וְעִמָּהּ בְּשׂוֹרָה.
אֶל חוֹף מִבְטַחִים
אֶל הַשֶּׁקֶט הַשָּׁר,
הַשִּׁיקִי גַּלִּים שֶׁל אוֹרָהּ.
הַפִּיצִי נִיחוֹחַ פְּרִיחַת הֲדָרִים
מַשָּׁב מְלַבֵּב שֶׁל חֶמְלָה.
בְּשֵׁלָה אַדְמָתֵנוּ, הַרְוִי צִמְאוֹנֵנוּ
לִמְטָּר אוֹר זַרְעֵי גְּאֻלָּה.
רוּחַ
פַּזְּרִי אֶת אֲבַק הַשְּׂרֵפָה
וְעַל עֲנָנִים קַלֵּי נוֹצָה,
שְׂאִי בִּכְנָפֵךְ אֶת יוֹנַת הַשָּׁלוֹם
צְחוֹרָה וְעִמָּהּ בְּשׂוֹרָה.
