I feel that something in the wood is other than usual.
There is a happy mood that is mysterious at the same time.
The senses are sharpened.
Like from afar I mean to hear the music of elves.
The songs they are singing are merry and joyous.
Songs that echo through the night that will not become dark.
Songs, penetrating deep into my soul.
That let me forget this world and make me dreaming.
But beyond all high mountains, under oaks and beeches dense.
There, where the moss has a sappy green and
The light breaks through the foliage,
Lies a pool deeply hidden, legendary and mythical,
Carries a whispering secret, conceals its power in the water.
Because thousands of elves were weeping, tears so enormously clear,
For the stream of life which had died tonight. For the oceans which do not breathe,
For the rivers deaf and blind, for the once so beautiful lakes which are only dried.
For the trees and the plants around lying in their agonies.
Nothing of the cheerful songs will ever dry their pain.
I feel some hope in endless pain as the wind is whirling, in a blue and silver band,
Through the night, carrying the voices of endless laughter - of my folk.
The shining moon and twinkling stars are looking down on the shimmering water,
Where oaks and beeches still dense, and murmuring water bringing comfort and ease.
Our sadness was endless, the pool was filling with salt.
Each tear was a thought of an animal in the realms of water,
Each tear was a thought of a tree in the realms of Mother Earth.
Each tear harbours the hope that this water will never dry up
And will gently rock the newly awakened life on its waves.
In a starlit night, moon's silvery light, breaks through to the clearing
of the wood, touching softly the silently pool, like casting a spell of magic.
The song of songs is born. The song of love and of beauty. The song of hope,
drying the tears, soothing the pain, chasing the sorrow.
That song can only be heard when sky and earth will unite, in a loving dance.
Then the sunlight will mingle with starlight so that nothing will ever disturb the peace.
