the final sentence

januar 30, 2011 § Legg igjen en kommentar

The rivers, lakes and ocean all stood still,

And nothing stirr’d within their silent depths;

Ships sailorless lay rotting on the sea,

And their masts fell down piecemeal: as they dropp’d

They slept on the abyss without a surge—

The waves were dead; the tides were in their grave,

The moon, their mistress, had expir’d before;

The winds were wither’d in the stagnant air,

And the clouds perish’d;

Darkness had no need

Of aid from them—She was the Universe.

 

Darkness by Lord Byron
