SHNEIM ASAR HAYERACHIM

12 HAYERACHIM 

BeTishrei natan hadekel
pri shachum nechmad.
BeCheshvan yarad hayoreh
ve'al gagi rakad.

BeKislev narkis hofia
beTevet - barad,
uviSh'vat chamah hif'tziah
leyom echad.

Ba'Adar alah nicho'ach
min hapardesim.
BeNisan hunfu becho'ach
kol hachermeshim.

Be'Iyar - hakol tzamach,
uveSivan - hiv'kir.
BeTamuz ve'Av samachnu
achar katzir.

Tishrei, Cheshvan, Kislev, Tevet,
chalfu avru biy'af.
Gam Shvat, Adar, Nisan, Iyar,
Sivan, Tamuz ve'Av.

Uvevo Elul eleinu
reiach stav alah,
vehitchalnu et shireinu
mehat'chalah.

THE TWELVE MONTHS

12 MOONS 

In Tishrei the palm tree gave
a cute dark brown fruit.
in Cheshvan the first rain fell
and danced on my roof.

In Kislev a narcissus appeared
in Tevet - hail,
and in Shevat the sun broke through
for one day.

In Adar a fragrance rose
from the orchards.
In Nisan all the sickles
were strongly wielded.

In Iyar - everything grew,
in Sivan - ripening.
In Tamuz & Av we rejoiced
after the harvest.

Tishrei, Cheshvan, Kislev, Tevet,
passed, went by in a rush.
Also Shevat, Adar, Nisan, Iyar,
Sivan, Tamuz and Av.

And in the coming of Elul to us
the fragrance of autumn rose,
and we began our song
from the beginning.
