The dark shadows of a night,
My eyes are so lethargic,
I want a silence where is quiet!
In the night I went on a forest path
Under yellow light of lamps,
While I quietly walked in the silence
I whispered to my shadow: Thanks!
I looked at her next to me
In the silence until midnight,
I loved her, she was timid –
Oh, my shadow and me in the night!
The sea was completely dark,
Invisible, very coldly;
Like a star shone one marine light
And gave me my bravery.
