TAM HASHARAV HAGADOL 

END OF HEAT WAVE

THE GREAT HEAT WAVE ENDED 

Tam hasharav hagadol
hashemesh rad layam hakachol
veru'ach harishit margi'ah
panim vetzavar nechiraim vadam.

Shnei tzayarim al hachof
ro'im le'or hayom et hasof
ulehakat sh'chafim kemar'eh
shavis aparpar kil'tifah al hayam.

Hi lo yoda'at kamah tuchal lim'shoch
hi lo yoda'at kamah tuchal lin'shoch
uch'var chashvah livro'ach mikan
zeh lo inyan rak she'ein lah le'an.

Ve'hi nirdemet behakitz
im hagav layam im harosh lesham
velo ichpat shek'var yavo
kach aleiha ya'avor
im hagav layam im harosh lesham.

Or hachashmal medagdeg
ve'et hachoshech zeh me'aneg
ve'anashim yotz'im lechapes
mikreh sheyikreh
im efshar bemikreh.

Shnei tzayarim al habar
od lo ma'aminim shenigmar
ush'vis harakdanit merachef
al beten galeiha ve'lo bemikreh.

Uvas'derot hara'ad over gover
bachatzerot hapachad nover tzover
pit'om hi mitrageshet nora
saf me'ora zeh yikreh zeh karah.

Ha'ir niftachat lefanav
im hagav layam im harosh lesham
lo nilchemet la'atzor
lo ichpat lah kvar ligmor
im hagav layam im harosh lesham.

Ve'hi niftachat lefanav
im hagav layam im harosh lesham
yohavuha tzayarim
yetzay'ruha shikorim
im hagav layam im harosh lesham.

Tam hasharav hagadol...

The big heat wave is over
The sun went down to the blue sea
And a still wind soothes
Face and neck, nostrils and blood.

Two painters on the beach
See the end of daylight
And a band of seagulls like a mirror
A grayish head covering
like a caress in the sea.

She does not know how much
she can attract
She does not know how much
she can bite
And she was already thinking
of fleeing from here
It's not just a matter of
having nowhere to go.

And she daydreams
With back to the sea and
with the head there
And doesn't mind that it
will already come this way
And will pass with back to
the sea and with the head there.

The electric light tickles
and the darkness is delightful
And people go out looking for
A case that will happen
if possible by chance.

Two painters at the bar
Still do not believe it is over
And the dancer's head covering
hovers over the belly of
her waves, and not by chance.

And in the avenues of tremor
passes, growing in the
yards of fear
going through a heap
suddenly she is
terribly excited, on the
verge of this event
it will happen, it happened.

The city opens before him
With back to the sea and
with the head there
Not fighting to stop
She does not mind
finishing anymore
With back to the sea and
with the head there.

And it opens before him
With back to the sea and
with the head there
It will love painters
Will paint drunks
With back to the sea and
with the head there.

The big heat wave is over.
