A Hymn for Hyacinth (פזמון ליקינתון, מאת לאה גולדברג)
Lyrics: Lea Goldberg (לאה גולדברג)
Translation: Uri Lifshitz (אורי ליפשיץ)
Night by night watches the moon,
at the garden flowers bloom,
at the Hyacinth buds, in our tiny garden,
night by night watches the moon.
And the moon says to the clouds
give a drop more to the garden grounds,
let the Hyacinth bloom in our tiny garden
so says the moon to the clouds.
Came the rain and in my window rang
for the flower in my garden a merry song it sang
and the Hyacinth answered in joy and merriment
to the downpour that on my window rang
And tomorrow to the garden we will all go
and there see the flower white as snow,
honoring the Hyacinth, my son will sing the hymn
and great joy will be had in the garden.
