BROSH

Va'ani raiti brosh
shenitzav betoch sadeh mul pnei hashemesh

Al tzido natah habrosh

Vehineh, mul hayam
kam habrosh yarok varam.

Hineh brosh, levado

Hineh brosh, levado

Brosh, levado eitan.
Lu rak nitan ve'elmad

Va'ani k'mo tinok
shenishbar velo yachol mul pnei hashemesh
bacham'sin, bakarah
umul pnei hase'arah.

Hineh brosh, levado...

CYPRESS

And I saw a cypress
that was standing in a field against the sun
in the hamsin*, in the frost
against the storm.

On its side a cypress hung
it didn't break its top, it bowed to the grass.
And here, against the sea
the cypress gets up green and lofty.

Here the cypress, alone
against fire and water.
Here the cypress, alone
up to the sky.
Cypress, alone firmly.
If only it's given and I'll learn
the way of one tree.

And I'm like a toddler
that's broken and unable in front of the sun
in the hamsin*, in the frost
against the storm.

Here the cypress, alone...
