Let’s go, my son, let’s go to our homeland. Let’s go to that valley and pick
newly-sprouted khavrtsil. We pick and pick and that will save us. There the birds are singing with their beaks; the swallows are clapping with their wings. The stones, without us, are crying. Our father and mother are buried there. They are crying sweetly and calling for us with pained
voices. How can we not go to our homeland? Let’s go, my son, let’s go to
our homeland.
