George Sterling (Джордж Стерлинг)


Night on the Mountain


THE fog has risen from the sea and crowned
    The dark, untrodden summits of the coast,
    Where roams a voice, in canyons uttermost,
From midnight waters vibrant and profound.
High on each granite altar dies the sound,
    Deep as the trampling of an armored host,
    Lone as the lamentation of a ghost,
Sad as the diapason of the drowned.

The mountain seems no more a soulless thing,
    But rather as a shape of ancient fear,
        In darkness and the winds of Chaos born
Amid the lordless heavens' thundering—
    A Presence crouched, enormous and austere,
        Before whose feat the mighty waters morn.



George Sterling's other poems:
  1. The Black Vulture
  2. On a Western Beach
  3. At the Grand Caсon
  4. A Legend of the Dove
  5. The Homing of Drake
