White summer night

             On the white summer night, the moon shines
                            brightly on the top of the hill
                    The dews kisses the delicate leaves in the forest
                            so softly
                    The stars fall gracefully softly in my eyes
                    In the dark of the night I feel the cold breeze
                    And the bright whiteness of the moon.             
                    Oh! How the white summer nights decorate my soul

                            with wondrous poetic awakening.
                    Watching the midnight moon atop of the hill
                    Feeling intoxicated as my soul being divided
                            into separate paths.
                    You have left bringing with you my love
                    And all I have left is the melancholic white summer
                            nights.
