Silently winds the brown snaking river
Silently sparkling frost makes us shiver.
Silently float the soft clouds on high
Puffing along in an almost clear sky.
Silently night descends all around,
Silently leaves drop down to the ground,
Silently steals the owl from his bed,
Time for the creatures of night to be fed.
Silently the moon rises high in the sky
Silently the sun says her passing goodbye,
Silently I find the warmth of my bed
Where problems of day drift far from my head.
