††††††††††† I am a bird flying here

††††††††††† In the strange nest, I hide myself

††††††††††† The window, peaceful lake surface

††††††††††† An intimate and stunning voice at dawn

 

††††††††††† In my closed eyes, the leave waves are spreading endlessly

††††††††††† Under Summerís feet

††††††††††† Over Springís head

 

††††††††††† The snow begins unrolling a soft blanket

††††††††††† And Winter embraces my shoulders with its huge hands
