Spring of the forest

I know about a crystal spring
in the forest deep.
There shadow fern is all around
and heather blossoms sleep.

There birds and hints her water drink down the maple trunk.
The birds come in the daily light
the hints when night is dark.

When forest fall into their dreams
so calm as they can be
the sky above and crystal spring
are a single starly sea.

Josef Václav Sládek
