    Hi,

    With choir we are starting to learn Latvian song Es gulu, gulu.
    It would help much if we knew what it meant.

    So far my try with online dictionaries:

    <Latvian>
    Es gulu, gulu man sapnī rādās,

    Mans mīļais are man nerunā.

    <English>
    I sleep and in my dream
    I don't speak with my darling

    <Polish>
    Śpię, a w moim śnie
    Nie rozmawiam ze swoim lubym

    <Latwian>
    Es sēž pie loga raudādama,
    Mans mīļais sedlo kumeliņ.

    <English>
    Sitting by the window I am crying
    My beloved horse saddle.

    <Polish>
    Siedzę przy oknie i rozpaczam
    Moje ulubione siodło konia.


    <Latvian>
    Uz zirga lekdams cepuri cēla,

    Ar Dievu sirsniņ mīļākā.

    <English>
    This equine ?? upward hat ??
    With God beloved sweetheart

    <Polish>
    To konna ?? podniesiona czapka ??
    Z Bogiem najdroższa ukochana.

    I am sure this is mostly incorrect ;)
    Polish or English preferably

    I guess it is not literary but quite common language.

    "I sleep and in my dream I see
    My beloved, he doesn't speak to me.
    I sit by the window and cry,
    I see my beloved saddle a horse.
    He rides and waves his hat to me.
    Goodbye, my sweetheart."
