LatvianEdit

(Sena Latgaļu tautas dziesma)

Pārkiuns veda
Pārkiuns veda vedekļeņu
No Vōczemes šai zemē

Sauļe veda
Sauļe veda velšu pūru
Vysu mežu puškodama

Prīdei sagša
Prīdei sagša, egļei sagša
Borzam bolta vyļaiņete

Ūzūlami
Ūzūlami voska cymdi
Por ceļeņa rōdēšanu

Smolkojami
Smolkojami kōrkļēšomi
Po dzeypūra gaļeņami

English translation Edit

(Ancient Letgallian folk song)

Pērkons brought the bride
From land beyond to here

Saule brought the dowry
Adorning all the forest

Pine and fir were blanketed
The birch got a white woolen shawl

The oak had waxen gloves
For showing the way

Even a little osier
Had a worsted wool
