Treasure Island

Mihai Eminescu

(15 January 1850 – 15 June 1889 / Botoşani/Moldavia)

The Brazen Bells of Midnight...


The brazen bells of midnight upon the darkness toll,
But sleep, life's custom agent, won't take from me his dole;
Down paths so many follow, death would my spirit lead,
And death, when all considered, resembles life indeed;
While in my heart the balance does level stand between
And neither to the one, nor to the other lean.
