      I thought I would share with you this traditional song, which I learned in
      the Polish Boy Scouts, and it may bring back memories of Ogniska (campfires0
      to some of you as well.

      It seems appropriate to share with the group, as it is about a dying Polish
      soldier who left his love in the "green Ukraine" (ie Kresy) to go to war,
      and sings to the ravens to take his love back to her though he shall never
      see her again.

      pour mettre cette chanson sur la reseau www. (Thanks to Stéphane Delriu, of
      the electronic newspaper Gazet@ Beskid in France, for putting this on the

      HEJ SOKOLY

      Zal, żal za dziewczyną,
      za zieloną Ukrainą,
      Zal, żal serce płacze,
      już, cię nigdy nie zobaczę.

      Hej, hej, hej sokoły,
      Omijajcie góry, lasy, doły,
      Dzwoń, dzwoń, dzwoń dzwoneczku,
      Mój stepowy skowroneczku.
      Hej, hej, hej sokoły,
      omijajcie góry, lasy, doły,
      Dzwoń, dzwoń, dzwoń dzwoneczku,
      mój stepowy dzwoń, dzwoń, dzwoń...

      Ona jedna tam została,
      jaskóleczka moja mała,
      na zielonej Ukrainie,
      przy kochanej tej dziewczynie.

      Hej, hej, hej sokoły...

      Wina, wina, wina dajcie,
      a jak umrę pochowajcie,
      na zielonej Ukrainie,
      przy kochanej tej dziewczynie...

      Hej, hej, hej sokoły...

        What a beautiful song. I got goose bumbs just listening and singing along. I'm glad that I understand the Polish language.

            Hello!

            I recognized the melody of this song  at the very beginning and realized that I had a tape from Poland with this same song on it.  It truly is a beautiful melody and song of the love for one's homeland - Poland.
