The English translation of the poem is…

There's no fireside like your own fireside.
Hang up your coat, take off your shoes,
get a cup of tea and sit by the fire.
The curtains drawn, the old clock ticking,
wind in the chimney whispering in the silence.
The cat and the dog both asleep.
There is no fireside like your own.
