Cu penelul ca sidefu

        Cu penelul ca sidefu
        Straluceste-o porumbita
        Cu capsorul sub aripa,
        Adormita sub o vita.

        Si tacere e afara.
        Lumineaza aer, stele,
        Muta-i noaptea - numai riul
        Se framinta-n pietricele.
                 
 

Pennis concheis
 
       Pennis concheis refulgens
        Stat in pampino columba,
        Capite sub ala misso,
        Placido devicta somno.

        Et silentium est foris;
        Illucescunt aer, stellae...
        Nox est muta: tantum rivus
        Agitatur in lapillis.
