Counts his fingers to six
Bird laughs, looks at his foot
What an evening, what a pleasant evening
the small willow tree
hunched over, reads the story of a child
Who was drowned in the river beneath his foot.
What a pleasant evening which goes to darkness
The Bridge, marks the dogs barking,standing
What a winged darkness is, in silence
Has started to fall, drop by drop
And searching for something
cracks the river's Silk, goes to the bottom of silence
What a night, what a dark night
Is in the roar of frogs
From the book : Songs of a wingless angel
