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.
