C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Tryst
By Afanasy Fet (Shenshin) (1820–1892)
 
Translation of John Pollen

A WHISPER, a gentle sigh,
  Trills of the nightingale;
The silver flash of the brook
  Asleep in the sleepy vale.
The shadow and shine of night        5
  Shadows in endless race;
The sweep of a magical change
  Over a sweet young face.
The blush of a rose in the mist,
  An amber gleam on the lawn,        10
A rash of kisses and tears—
  And oh, “the Dawn, the Dawn!”
