snow is gone –
mournful snowdrops
on the hillside
kalvos pašlaitė –
žiemos sniegui nutirpus
snieguolės gedi

How fitting. It is almost as if they are giving off their farewell to the winter. I liked this very much.

Soft love,

tiny white snowdrops
dusting the greening hiilside-
one more snow to come

I'm tasting the words 'sniegui' and 'snieguoles'.

I don't understand Lithuanian, but this seems to sound nice!

Which of those words is 'snow'?

Ričardas said...

Patricija, I am glad you like it.
Paul, thanks, you got it so well, I could draw a picture from your verse.
Tikis, bon appetite :) 'sniegui' (sniegas) means 'snow' It's a really sweet word, cold meaning though
