Heard an old Kashmiri Pandit woman singing this folk song today.Worried am I today; This precious folk literature that lies in the memory store of our elders is going to vanish shortly.I quote what I heard with my simple english rendering for friends who do not understand kashmiri.

In this folk song a maiden welcomes the arrival of spring in a beautiful style and also asks her beloved to pay her a visit...

Gul phael tai phulayaa 

,


Rozu bulbul lol tchoan Aavo....
Rang kyaah roatt aeimm rang Tcheiray,
Sangdil yaar yueir Maa pheiray
Nanga Maa gatchhi harrdein vaavo..
Rozu bulbul lol tchoan Aavo....


(Spring flowers bloom all over,
O Bulbul,come,stay here,
I pine to meet you.


Look at this apricot flower,
What a grand colour it acquired ?
Would that stone hearted beloved of mine
come this way now ..
The autumnal winds may also arrive later
And this beauty may get unclothed .
O bulbul,come,stay here,
I pine to meet you.)

Kuyii Pyaath ke badaam posho
Suul kaa’rthhum thhuv ta gosho
Asta Asta Chashm Vaen Mutcharaavo
Rozu Bulbul Lol Tchoan Aavo


( O Sprouting Almond flower of that tree ,
Listen ! Have not you arrived so early this time ?
Now be slow in opening your eyes over here .
O Bulbul, Come, Stay here ,
I pine to meet you.)

Aa’ar Posho Tcheir Kyaazi Gayyi -Yo
Munz Vanasaeyyi Nendhraa Peiyi –yo
Valla Vuchh Baaguk Chikka Chaavo
Rozu Bulbul Lol Tchoan Aavo.



( O Plum flower , why so late this time ,
Were you under a sleep inside the jungle ?
Now Hurry up and see the grandeur of the garden.
O Bulbul, Come, Stay here ,
I pine to meet you.)

(4)
Naagraadun Aab Guvv Jaar’ie
Baag Andeiray Gul phoel Saar’ie
Baag e Jannattuk Sabzaar chhaavo
Rozu Bulbul Lol Tchoan aavo…

( How good to see water gushing out of the springs ,
And inside the garden, flowers thrive all over .
Now come and take pleasure in the greenery of this paradise .
O Bulbul, Come, Stay here ,
I pine to meet you.)
