Night

The mountain peaks, the lower depths--all sleep!
The jutting headland rocks and rushing stream.
within the clotted earth curl up
the sluggish weasel and the snake. On rocks
above, the goats recline, and
soundless in the hive the labored bee.
All creatures sleep within the sea.
The birds have dropped their proud extended wings.

(Alcman)
