“It was night, and the rain fell; and falling, it was rain, but, having fallen, it was blood.”
Edgar Allan Poe, Silence: A Fable
“And his brow was lofty with thought, and his eye wild with care; and, in the few furrows upon his cheek I read the fables of sorrow, and weariness, and disgust with mankind, and a longing after solitude.”
Edgar Allan Poe, Silence: A Fable
“It was night, and the rain fell; and falling, it was rain, but, having fallen, it was blood. And I stood in the morass among the tall and the rain fell upon my head-and the lilies sighed one unto the other in the solemnity of their desolation.”
Edgar Allan Poe, Silence: A Fable
“Allí, como las olas en las Hébridas, la maleza se agita continuamente. Pero ningún viento surca el cielo. Y los altos árboles primitivos oscilan eternamente de un lado a otro con un potente resonar. Y de sus altas copas se filtran, gota a gota, rocíos eternos. Y en sus raíces se retuercen, en un inquieto sueño, extrañas flores venenosas. Y en lo alto, con un agudo sonido susurrante, las nubes grises corren por siempre hacia el oeste, hasta rodar en cataratas sobre las ígneas paredes del horizonte. Pero ningún viento surca el cielo. Y en las orillas del río Zaire no hay ni calma ni silencio.”
Edgar Allan Poe, Silence: A Fable
