C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Evening
By Fyodor Tyutchev (1803–1873)
 
Translation of Nathan Haskell Dole

HOW sweetly o’er the silent valley
  The distant solemn bell-tones fly!
Like rustling flights of cranes they dally,
  Then in the sighing of leaves they die.
 
And like a spring tide overflowing        5
  The day grows bright, then slowly fades;
And swifter and more silent going,
  Adown the valley creep the shades.
