Prisoner's Song
By V.M. Pasquale
Translated by A.Z. Foreman

A little bird at my window sings
My heart weeps
I see a flower felled in the dust
Kept alive by two tears
I am just like you, flower dear, 
Dying afar from the green field

The Original:

Paš múři filástra jekh cino čiriklo gilabal
Múřo jilo rovel
Dikhav jekh lulugi po práxo
Dui asvina den la o trájo
Me sim sar tu, lulugíjo
Dur katar e zéleni mal merav
