      Registration -- to join PMO ***UPDATED INSTRUCTIONS***   03/14/2017

      Automatic registration has been disabled. If you would like to join the Poetry Magnum Opus online community, use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of this page and follow these instructions: 1. Check your email (including your spam folder) in a timely fashion for a reply. 2. After you receive a reply, use the "Sign Up" link at the top right corner of the page to create your account. Do this fast. I've lost my patience with people who use the "Contact Us" link to express interest in joining and then don't bother to check their email for a reply and don't bother to join after registration has been enabled. The queue fills up fast with spammers, and I have to spend my time sifting through the rubbish to delete them. The window of opportunity for joining will be short. I will not have my time wasted. If you don't check your email and you don't bother registering promptly, you will find that registration has been disabled and your future requests to join may go ignored. /s/ Tony ___________________ [Registration will only be enabled for a short while from the time your message is received, so please check your email for a reply and register within 12 hours of using the "Contact Us" link.

Hello goldenlangur. This is old traditional song. This song sings a lot of our singers and the origin sings the old singer - now dead Nikola Badev, and I must note that he is from my region - Kavadarci. The song tells how the girl Biljana whitening the linen on fountain of Ohrid lake and at the moment showed up the vintners and she asks from them to be careful of her linen because that linen is for giving to her parents in low for one day when she gonna get marriage. And they are saying to her, if they stepped the linen, they will pay with beautiful wine. But she ask not the wine , but the boy who ride the caravan.

 

So this song is for love, for ones who fall in love, marriage etc.

We have tradition to prepare the girls before they get marriage, ok that was more present in the past, now it is changing , but the folklore, the tradition, the songs live forever.

 

Here is the LINKwith the origin voice.

 

Glad you like it golden.
