“A White Globe”
Livaka arrived at the estate
Make a white hay picking.
There is no tea up to the white heather
Likarija is my heart.
The leafy tea and the white flower
It heals the helplessness of the soul and the body.
Still to see the smile on your face,
When you add some brandy to tea.
From HTV people came to us,
It would not raise your readership!
The author of this song is Jure Vidakušić, and the lyrics were written by Predrag Livak.
It was just a pleasant evening, spontaneous, friendly, filled with beautiful lyrics, music and emotions, which all agreed, should be repeated!
This cultural event in nature was supported by the County of Požega-Slavonia, which by this act proved to support such a unique event that is an interesting part of agriculture, nature and culture.
