by Charlotte Brontë (1816 - 1855)

Eventide
Language: English 
Available translation(s): FRE ITA
The house was still, the room was still
'Twas eventide in June;
A caged canary to the sun
Then setting, trilled a tune.

A free bird on the lilac-bush
Outside the lattice heard;
He listened long -- there came a hush,
He dropped an answering word.
