Look back on time with kindly eyes

Look back on time with kindly eyes,
He doubtless did his best;
How softly sinks his trembling sun
In human nature’s west!

 

*****

 

Spójrz wstecz na czas zapatrywaniem życzliwym,
Jak mógł, się starał, bez wątpliwości;
Miękko tonie słońce jego migotliwe
W natury ludzkiej stronie zachodniej!
