The Skies Are Strown With Stars - Poem by William Ernest Henley

The skies are strown with stars,
The streets are fresh with dew
A thin moon drifts to westward,
The night is hushed and cheerful.
My thought is quick with you.

Near windows gleam and laugh,
And far away a train
Clanks glowing through the stillness:
A great content's in all things,
And life is not in vain.

    ''I cieli sono disseminati di stelle / Le strade sono fresche di rugiada''
