“Whispers, Timid Breathing”
By Afanasy Shenshin-Foeth (1820–1892)
 
WHISPERS. Timid breathing. Trilling
      Of a nightingale.
Heaving silver waters rilling
      In the quiet vale.
 
Night’s dim light and shadows dreaming        5
      Through the haze of space.
Moods like faery lanterns gleaming
      On the dearest face.
 
Smoky clouds show roses sleeping,
      Amber lights and fawn.        10
Kisses soft, and softer weeping.
      And the dawn, the dawn!
