The Minor Poet

His little trills and chirpings were his best.
No music like the nightingale's was born
Within his throat; but he, too, laid his breast
Upon a thorn.

Den lilla poeten

Den bästa var sången och hans röst
och ingen sång likt näktergalens alls hördes
ur hans hals, dock la han ock sitt bröst
uppå ett törne.
 
Thanks!
