Εἶναι στ’ ἀλήϑεια ἡ σιɣαλιὰ τῆς νύxτας ποὺ ὑφαίνει τὸ νυφιάτιϰο
πέπλο πάνω ἀπ’ τὰ δέντϱα τοῦ δάσους, ϰαὶ τὰ λουλούδια τοῦ ϰὴπου,
ϰαὶ μετὰ στϱώνει τὸ πλούσιο τϱαπέzι ϰι ἑτοιμάzει τὸ νυφιϰὸ δωμάτιο·
ϰαὶ μέσα σὲ τούτη τὴν ἅɣια σιωπή, τὸ αὔϱιο συλλαμϐάνεται στὴ μήτϱα τοῦ Χϱόνου.

— Ο ϰήπος του πϱοφήτη, Χαλίλ Γϰιμπϱάν


It is indeed the stillness of the night that weaves a wedding
veil over the trees in the forest, and the flowers in the garden,
and then spreads the lavish feast and makes ready the nuptial chamber;
and in that holy silence tomorrow is conceived in the womb of Time.

— The Garden Of The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran
