Mathilde Blind (Матильда Блайнд)


The Red Sunsets, 1883 (The boding sky was charactered with cloud)


The boding sky was charactered with cloud,
  The scripture of the storm--but high in air,
  Where the unfathomed zenith still was bare,
A pure expanse of rose-flushed violet glowed
And, kindling into crimson light, o'erflowed
  The hurrying wrack with such a blood-red glare,
  That heaven, igniting, wildly seemed to flare
On the dazed eyes of many an awe-struck crowd.

And in far lands folk presaged with blanched lips
Disastrous wars, earthquakes, and foundering ships
  Such whelming floods as never dykes could stem,
Or some proud empire's ruin and eclipse:
  Lo, such a sky, they cried, as burned o'er them
  Once lit the sacking of Jerusalem!
