Portre of Miljković, Branko

Odbrana zemlje (Serbian)

Gledali smo kako umiru stojeći oni koje volimo

U srcu ljubav jača od smrti
U glavi misao veća od glave
I to je odbrana zemlje

Strašni su ratnici pod zemljom, vojnici odbrane,
Zaliha snage spremna ako živi klonu
I to je odbrana zemlje.

Velika reč ni iz srca ni iz glave
Već iz zemlje ko biljka il cvet
Raste, i to je odbrana zemlje

Namučeno zrno misli cvet
Dan misli sunce
I to je odbrana zemlje

Koliko je zemlje iza nas
Toliko je snage u nama
I to je odbrana zemlje

Defending The Land (English)

We watched as those we love died standing

In the heart love stronger than death
In the head a thought larger than the head
That too is defending the land

Terrible are the worriors beneath the ground, soldiers of defence,
A source of strength should the living faulter
That too is defending the land.

A great word grows not from the heart nor from the head
But from the ground like the plant or flower
That too is defending the land

The struggling seed thinks flower
The day thinks sun
That too is defending the land

The extent of the land behind us
Is the extent of our strength
That too is defending the land
