|(Kinneret Sheli)||(My Kinneret)|
Ve'ulai - lo hayu hadvarim me'olam
|And perhaps - these things never happened
And perhaps - I never rose at dawn to plant
the fields with my own hands...
Never - on the long days
(long) of harvest
I did not give my voice to sing.
Never did I purify myself in your azure waters
Of my Kinneret,
oh my Kinneret.
Perhaps it was a dream.
