    Four queries: presumably περάσουνε (l.3) is here from παίρνω; what part of βγαίνω is έβγα; does με in Cretan dialect mean μου sometimes? And why are the kolyva έρμα. That's for a quick help to enable a translation,

    I've also now realised that here the dead man speaks to his beloved, not to his mother as I first surmised.
