A popular children’s song about winter goes like this:

Zima, zima bela
vrh gore sedela,
pa tako je pela:
da bo Mirka vzela.
Ker on nič ne dela,
ker on nič ne naredi,
čakaj, čakaj Mirko ti!

(

Winter, white winter
sat on a mountain’s top,
singing like this:
that she will Mirko take.
Because he does not work at all,
because he does not do a thing,
just wait, you wait Mirko!

)
