Boatman of Viljandi
Translated and performed by Viido Polikarpus
Long-long ago, as a young man, the Boatman of Viljandi had taken a young girl across the lake on a summer evening and fallen hopelessly in love with the girl’s blue eyes. On the other side, the girl just waved good-bye and left… However, the Boatman, a grey old man now, is said to row on the lake to this day, longing to see those wonderful blue eyes again.
