Ghastly Vision II

In (another) ghastly vision of future desolation, Lord Byron foresees my family’s Thanksgiving dinner yesterday:

…a meal was bought
With blood, and each sate sullenly apart
Gorging himself in gloom; no love was left…

‘Darkness’, lines 39-41

  1. Sinibaldi says:

    La perception des âmes désolées.

    C’est la
    perception des
    âmes désolées,
    et quand le
    tourment descend
    pour décrire
    le portrait d’une
    ombre matinale
    je vois, dans
    la mer, une ombre
    infinie qui rappelle
    la jeunesse.

    Francesco Sinibaldi
