Drowsy Birds



Drowsy birds at even gliding,

Round about their nests alight,

In among the branches hiding –

Dear, good night !

Silence through the forest creeping,

Lullaby the river sighs;

In the garden flowers sleeping –

Shut your eyes !

Glides the swan among the rushes

To its rest where moonlight gleams,

And the angels’ whisper hushes –

Peaceful dreams !

O’er sky stars without number,

On the earth a silver light;

All is harmony and slumber –

Dear, good night !

Mihai Eminescu, Somnoroase pasarele

Translated from Romanian by Corneliu  M.  Popescu
