A nice song for Ukrainian Vyshyvanka (embroidered shirt) Day (17.5.18).

Mother’s Shirt

My mom was embroidering a shirt for me
As if she was embroidering the fate for me with red crosses*
She was doing it to avoid me from searching the evil paths
And to make me be friendly to the other people
Follow this, my daughter – my mother said
Follow the Life’s laws, the simple truth
Do not betray the earth, that brought you up
Do not leave anyone in the trouble

Chorus (2):
A mother’s shirt is very white
A mother’s shirt is dear to the heart
A mother’s shirt is warming
I take it closer to my heart

Years flew by like birds
And Mum’s braids blossomed like a dim
I am embroidering the white shirt
Just like my mother once did
Follow this, my daughter – my mother said
Follow the Life’s laws, the simple truth
Do not betray the earth, that brought you up
Do not leave anyone in the trouble

*crosses there mean the ornament of embroidering
