C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Happiness in Slumber
By Vasily Zhukovsky (1783–1852)
 
Translation of Nathan Haskell Dole

ALONG the road the maiden
  Walked with her faithful youth;
Their eyes with grief were laden,
  Their faces pale with ruth.
 
On eyes and lips with yearning        5
  Their tender kisses rain;
And life and beauty returning
  Bloom in their hearts again.
 
Their joy was quickly reckoned:
  Twice rang a solemn bell!        10
She in a convent wakened—
  He, in a prison cell!
