(5 December 1820 - 3 December 1892 / Novosyolky)

Nightingales, A Sigh, A Whisper


Nightingales, a sigh, a whisper
In a shady nook
And the lullaby in silver
Of a lazy brook.

Light of night and midnight shadow
Falling from above
And the changing mood and magic
Of a face you love

Through dark clouds a red rose peeping
And an amber gleam,
And the kissing and the weeping
And the dawn serene!

To war and arms I fly.
