The streamlet's slumber song

Language: English

While beneath a cloudless sky
Swallows over meadows fly
Bees are droning lazy tunes
Through the sultry noons
    Drowsily I flow along
    Murmuring my sleepy song
    Slower softer still it sighs
    To a whisper dies

While among the new-mown grass
Crickets cry Ah soon alas
Bee and brook will sing no more
Summer will be o'er
    Drowsily I flow along
    Murmuring my sleepy song
    Slower softer still it sighs
    To a whisper dies.
