Silently courses the brown snaking river;

Silently shimmering, the frost makes us shiver.

    Silently soft clouds drift past up on high -

    Puffing along in a halcyon sky.


Silently darkness descends all around;

Silently leaves drop upon the cold ground;

    Silently the barn owl steals from his bed;

    Time for the creatures of night to be fed.


Silently rises the moon in the sky;

Silently daytime is saying goodbye.

    Silently I make my way to my bed

    Where problems of day drift away from my  head.
