Return to homeland, 1945

After grievous years of separation
now I see my dearest native fields.
When I watch my land, for ages longed,
I want do my former job again.

You, my land, are so great,
young and powerful and always now
with victory, with peace.
We shall do everything for your glory.

I lived under those oldest rowan-trees,
full of fruits in golden autumn times.
But my songbird waits behind the window,
sadly glancing to the passing road.
