A sunset

Oh, gaze ye on the firmament, a hundred clouds in motion,

Up-piled in the immense sublime beneath the winds' commotion,

Their unimagined shapes accord:

Under their waves at intervals flame a pale levin through,

As if some giant of the air amid the vapors drew

A sudden elemental sword.

 

From 'Feuilles d'Automne' by Victor Hugo
