DADDY, CATCH THE MOON, FOR ME

DOHVATI MI, TATA, MJESEC



Dohvati mi, tata, Mjesec
Da kraj mene malo sja!
Dohvati mi, tata, Mjesec
Da ga rukom taknem ja.

Mjesec mora gore sjati
Ne smije se on skidati.
On mora kod zvijezda biti
Put zvijezdama svijetliti

Da zvjezdice kući znaju
Kad se nebom naigraju.
I na zemlju mora sjati

Da zec vidi večerati
Da jež vidi putovati
Da miš vidi trčkarati
Da bi ptice mogle spati

I da tebi, moje dijete,
Mjesec lagan san isplete
Od srebrnih niti
Pa da snivaš i ti.

-Grigor Vitez





Daddy, catch the moon for me
So it can shine right next to me
Daddy catch the moon for me
So I can touch it with my hand freely.

The Moon must shine light up so high
And one must not take it away
It must stay with  the stars so bright
And spread its light on their way

So the stars can find their way back home
So they don’t stay there for too long

So  that the Earth can stay shiny too

So  the bunny can find its food
So the hedgehog can travel through
So the mice can see the road too
So the birds can sleep like you

And for you, my dear child,
The Moon will bring you from a far
One light dream made of silver threads

So you can sleep and dream as well.
