As Within a Furnace Bright

"Lo! the sun upsprings behind,

Broad, red, radiant, half-reclined

On the level quivering line

Of the waters crystalline;

And before that chasm of light,

As within a furnace bright,

Column, tower, and dome, and spire,

Shine like obelisks of fire,

Pointing with inconstant motion

From the altar of dark ocean

To the sapphire-tinted skies;

As the flames of sacrifice

From the marble shrines did rise

As to pierce the dome of gold

Where Apollo spoke of old."

 

~ Percy Bysshe Shelley, 1792-1822 ~

From "Written among the Euganean Hills, North Italy"

 

I have so many images to catch up on ... I will pst them as I edit.
