    The warring clouds have vanished from the skies;
    The war of  men has ended with the night.
    The morning sun gilds the three heads that rise
    Supreme above Carniola’s snowpeaks white.
    The lake of  Bohinj calm in stillness lies,
    No sign of strife remains to outward sight;
    Yet in the lake the fierce pike never sleep,
    nor other fell marauders of the deep.


    (An excerpt from Prešeren’s epic poem The Baptism at The Savica; transl. by Alasdair MacKinnon)
