Evening Songs (Op. 31)


Umlklo stromů šumění

Umlko stromů šumění
a lístek sotva dýše,
a ptáček dřímá krásný sen
tak tichounce, tak tiše.
Na nebi vzešlo mnoho hvězd
a kolem je tak volno,
jenom v ňadrech teskno tak
a u srdce tak bolno.
Ve kvítků pěkný kalíšek
se bílá rosa skládá,
můj bože, a ta rosa též
se v moje oči vkrádá.
