LATVIAN SOLSTICE IN THE NEW WORLD
Latvian folksong text
1 | Bišu stropa dziesma1 | Bees' Song
Pasadzied', bāleliņ
Ar savām māsiņām;
I bitīte padziedāja
Ziemassvētku vakarā.
Totari, totari...
Sing, dear brother,
Sing with your sisters;
Even the tiny bee sings
On Christmas Eve.
Totari, totari...*
 

* untranslatable refrain used in Latvian winter solstice folk songs
