Walter de la Mare (1873 – 1956)
Silver
Slowly, silently, now the moon
Walks the night in her silver shoon;
This way, and that, she peers, and sees
Silver fruit upon silver trees;
One by one the casements catch
Her beams beneath the silvery thatch;
Couched in his kennel, like a log,
With paws of silver sleeps the dog;
From their shadowy cote the white breasts peep
Of doves in silver feathered sleep
A harvest mouse goes scampering by,
With silver claws, and silver eye;
And moveless fish in the water gleam,
By silver reeds in a silver stream.

Уолтер Де Ла Мэр  (1873 – 1956)

Медленно тихо в полночной поре
Вышла луна, башмаки в серебре;
То скроется вдруг, то покажется редко, Серебряный фрукт на серебряной ветке; Заглянет в чужие окошки неслышно, Серебряный свет оставляя под крышей; В своей конуре уставший щенок
Дремлет в объятьях серебряных снов; И белые голуби, часто дыша,
Летают в крылатых серебряных снах; Мышь, пробегая, блеснет здесь подчас, Серебряный коготь, серебряный глаз; И сонная рыба в мерцанье ручья
Застыла, в камыш серебристый зайдя.
