Alidé Sans - Tèrra (English translation)

Occitan

Tèrra

Suenha, estima era Tèrra.
Sonque ei ua e li quede ben pòc,
damb es tempsi que corren,
ròde eth mon sense amor.
 
Guarda, escota era Tèrra.
Ei ua mair que met era votz
ath vent e plore.
Non la dèishes quèir...
 
Que praubi qu’èm,
mos an convençut de que deman
apariaram
es problèmes que creèrem,
es herides que daurírem
bèth temps a,
quan encara auíem fòrces
tà gastar,
e atau non i a deman....
 
Eth dia deth sòn enterrament,
ena consciéncia der Univèrs
quedarà alugada ua candela eterna,
en nòm dera nòsta umila Tèrra,
explotada, mautractada, mutilada e assassinada,
pes sòns pròpis hilhs.
 
Suenha, estima era Tèrra.
Sonque ei ua e li quede ben pòc,
damb es tempsi que corren,
ròde eth mon sense amor.

Earth

Dream, love the Earth.
There is only one and it has so little left,
with the time that’s running out,
the world spins1 without love.
 
Look, hear the Earth.
It is a mother that puts her voice
to the wind and cries.
Don’t let her fall…
 
We’re so pathetic,
They convinced us that tomorrow
we will fix
the problems which we created,
the wounds that we opened
so long ago,
when we still had so much
to spend,
and like that, there is no tomorrow…
 
The day of its burial,
in the Universe’s conscience
there will remain an eternal candle burning,
in the name of our humble Earth,
exploited, mistreated, mutilated and murdered,
by her own children.
 
Dream, love the Earth.
There is only one and it has so little left,
with the time that’s running out,
the world spins without love.
 
  • 1. Literally, “rolls.”
