This is one of my favourite poems. It sounds much better in Croatian of course. I know it by heart because my higschool teacher of Croatian language made us memorize it. I'm happy she did :)

Ivan Gundulić – Himna Slobodi

O lijepa, o draga, o slatka slobodo,
Dar u kom sva blaga višnji nam Bog je do,
Uzroče istini slave sve naše,
Uresu jedini od ove Dubrave.
Sva srebra, sva zlata, svi ljudski životi
Ne mogu bit plata tvoj čistoj lipoti!

Translation:
Ode to Liberty

Oh beautiful, oh dear, oh sweet liberty,
The gift in which all treasures Almighty God gave us,
The cause of truth of all our glory,
The only adornment of this Dubrava.
All the silver, all the gold, all the human lives
Cannot repay thy pure beauty!
