Shvalbn vi tunkele fayln
Far der kinstlerin Sylvia Ary

Shvalbn, vi tunkele fayln
Hobn geviret di luft
In der leng,
In der breyt
Far dem mildn farnakht,
Vos vet aynzamlen
Der umru,
Di zorgn fun tog
Eyder er gargeyt

S'hot ayngehaltn dem otem di erd,
Zi zol kenen derhern
Dos rizlen fun zaftn
In shtamen fun beymer,
Vos zenen geshtanen forkhtik un fartrakht
Un gevart oyf der rege geheymer,
Ven s'vet der himl
Zeyer kop bakroynen
Mit di yunge shtern.

Description

[Note from black hardbound catalog:] Whenever noises are heard on the tape, they are either from traffic noises which intruded themselves into the area where taping was taking place, or the noises of restlessness and fidgeting on the part of the group, which was present. Taping in groups stimulated the memory. Hearing the singers, the response would often be, “That’s not the way I sang it.” And their variants would be given.
