Pismo z Belovara

Došlo pismo z Belovara, baš za tebe, draga Bara.
Pismo piše, o Barica, ostala si udovica.
Tvoga dragog više nema, pokrila ga crna zemlja.
Kad je čula mlada Bara, jadna se je rasplakala.
Tri je dana suze lila, a četvrti razmišljala,
Sve je misli izmislila, pa je grobek potražila.
Zemlja joj je postelica, vedro nebo ponjavica.

A letter from Belovar is here for you, dear Bara. The letter says you’re a widow now.
Your sweetheart is no more, he’s covered in black earth.
When young Bara heard of the news, she sobbed.
Three days she shed tears, and on the fourth she began thinking.
After reflecting, she went in search for her grave.
The earth was her bed, the clear sky her blanket.
