HANGING leprous and white in the wide universe
Was a star done to death by the hand of God's curse.
Each mount was an island suspended in air,
And petrified hurricanes hung here and there
In impotent menace; whole forests inclined
Were frozen one way by a visible wind;
Like death-shrouded lava the face of the Deep
Paused in green convolutions, in masses did stand
Along the dread hush of a desolate land.
