• Verba Obscura Translation #33

    Scintillate, scintillate, globule vivific!
    Fain would I fathom thy nature specific,
    Distantly poised in the ether capacious,
    Closely resembling a gem carbonaceous.

    Twinkle, twinkle, little star!
    How I wonder what you are,
    Up above the world so high,
    Like a diamond in the sky.
