Tene yaldut nisa aley shechem,

Veze atzuv veyofi kafri

A FRUIT BASKET
As the summer arrives in a cool evening
with cry and laughter a song was born
And a melody for the end of the season,
like a ripe flower, played own it's own
A basket of strawberries and a basket of loquats,
a green basket of hope,
A basket of youth carried on shoulder
a basket made of love fruits.
The taste is beautiful
it reminds me of sweet young love
It was a magic moment
I was emotional when he offered me strawberries.
It is the last light of summer
it sounds relaxing but I feel l lump in my throat
And it's sad and a rural beauty
on the balcony another fruit fell off.
