“Cançó de bressol / Lullaby” (Eduard Toldrà)

Lullaby

Text de: Tomàs Garcés

Original Català

De bon matí se n’ha anat;
tot just despuntava el dia
i l’estrella de l’amor
era un brot de tarongina.
La rosada del matí
era un plor de pedres fines.
Dorm, infant,
que ton pare n’és al camp
a collir menta florida.

Apartarà els esbarzers
quan el punxin les espines.
Espines, feu-vos enllà;
vine, la menta florida.
Quan passa el seu cavall blanc
l’ocell tremola i refila.
Dorm, infant,
que ton pare n’és al camp
a collir menta florida.

La selva s’aclarirà,
que la lluna la il.lumina.
Sota la llum de la nit
l’herba florida fugia,
però els ulls del cavall blanc
en la fosca l’endevinen.
Dorm, infant,
que ton pare n’és al camp
a collir menta florida.

Dorm, infant, que el son és dolç
i l’oratjol hi convida.
Demà, de bon dematí,
ton pare serà a la llinda.
Que et trobi dintre el bressol
com una estrella adormida.
Dorm, infant,
que ton pare n’és al camp
a collir menta florida.

Traducció a l’anglès – English Translation

He left early in the morning,
when dawn was just breaking,
and the star of love
was like a bud of orange flower.
The morning’s dew
was like tears of precious stones.
Sleep, infant,
that your father is in the meadow
to pick flowering mint.

He will push the brambles aside
when the thorns will sting.
Thorns, move out,
come, flowering mint.
When his white horse goes past,
the bird trembles and twitters.
Sleep, infant,
that your father is in the meadow
to pick flowering mint.

The forest will brighten
for the moon will illuminate it.
Under the light of night,
the flowering herb was fleeing,
but the eyes of the white horse
track it down in the darkness.
Sleep, infant,
that your father is in the meadow
to pick flowering mint.

Sleep, infant, sleep is sweet,
and the gentle wind invites it.
Tomorrow, early in the morning,
your father will be at the threshold.
He should find you in the cradle
like a sleeping star.
Sleep, infant,
that your father is in the meadow
to pick flowering mint.
