Darkness


I had a dream, which was not all a dream.
The bright sun was extinguish'd, and the stars
Did wander darkling in the eternal space,

    Byron wrote this after his trip to Naples. The vision of a volcanic apocalypse is evident in many areas of our world today. Mauna Loi, Vesuvius, Mexico, Yellowstone. (Report) Reply

    This was the first true poem I ever read when I was 16 years old, before then I was a somewhat typical male teenager who did not understand the power of language as an art form and as a creator of genius. This poem excels at everything true art does, conviction, pathos imagery and movement, the apocalypse has never been so disturbingly beautiful as expressed hear. This is just the epitome of Greatness. Thank you Byron! (Report) Reply

    Viciously beautiful. Never has one single person ever written such a tantalizing peom about the apocolypse. God has wrath and it is described very well here. Definately viciously beautiful. (Report) Reply

    There's some great fire images here. I did find it a bit rambling though; in my opinion it could do with some editing. Sean (Report) Reply

    He speaks about the more like apocalypse - as if a cosmic cataclysm in which God destroys the powers of evil. What a catastrophe. This was a tragedy. (Report) Reply
