Sleepy Birds


Mihai Eminescu

All those sleepy birds

Now tired from flight

Hide among the leaves


Only the spring whispers

When the wood sleeps silently;

Even flowers in the gardens

Sleep peacefully!

Swans glide to their nest

Sheltering among the reeds

May angels guard your rest,

Sweet dreams!

Above a night of sorcery

Comes the moon's graceful light,

All is peace and harmony
