Dance Upon The Hoods of Horror


When `tis anarchy is loosed everywhere
Blood dimmed tide strengthens its sphere;

Death`s agents do dance around
At Destruction`s menacing sound;

Even the Devil sickens at deeds
Every hour do slaughterings breeds;

Blood-shed, slayings and all violence
Hovers around and tramples innocence;

Nature-wrathful-angrily frowned
Clamouring at Disaster`s sounds;

Damned laughter of the Doom
To every ears doth echo and loom;

And makes the oceans obedient in fear
To swallow all navigation`s cheer;

All over violence broils violent
Horror`s ceremony largely extends;

Whole fertility earth do hides
Upon the storm Calamity strides;

You rise, You rise, You open thy eyes
Shake thy slumber off thy eyes,

Trample underfoot the being of Fear
March ahead like daresome Mutineer,

Daggers, swords, all weapons ever weiled
Can never stand against thy shield,

Thou hath furious Rudra`s wrath
Indra`s powers do add thy worths,

Thou hast just thy being to know
Thou hast just thy powers to show,

Stand gallantly against all vieces
Mountains shall give way, difficulties shall perish;

Dance upon the hoods of Horror
And let him know a Mutineer`s terror;

The earth shall mighten thy bodily powers
Water shall give a reviving shower;

Fire shall kindle and blaze thy rage
Sky shall add boldness and courage;

Wind shall give a breathing vital
Against those dare tame stormy and fatal;

Let thy powers be wielded right'ly
With Him within That immortals thee.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
