Round, by means of lifting winds forgot, Resignedly underneath the sky The depression waters lie. No rays from the holy heaven come down On the lengthy night-time of that city; But gentle from out the lurid sea Streams up the turrets silently— Gleams up the pinnacles some distance and unfastened— Up domes—up spires—up kingly halls— Up fanes—up Babylon-like partitions— Up shadowy long-forgotten bowers Of scultured ivy and stone vegetation— Up many and lots of a marvellous shrine Whose wreathèd friezes intertwine The viol, the violet, and the vine. Resignedly underneath the sky The depression waters lie. So mixture the turrets and shadows there That all appear pendulous in air, While from a proud tower within the city Death appears gigantically down. There open fanes and gaping graves Yawn point with the luminous waves; But now not the riches there that lie In every one idol’s diamond eye— Not the gaily-jewelled useless Tempt the waters from their mattress; For no ripples curl, unluckily! alongside that barren region of glass— No swellings inform that winds can be Upon a few distant happier sea— No heavings trace that winds were On seas much less hideously serene. yet lo, a stir is within the air! The wave—there is a stream there! as though the towers had thrown apart, In a bit of sinking, the uninteresting tide— As if their tops had feebly given A void in the filmy Heaven. The waves have now a redder glow— The hours are respiring faint and coffee— And while, amid no earthly moans, Down, down that city shall settle consequently, Hell, emerging from one thousand thrones, Shall do it reverence. 1831 The Valley of Unrest Once it smiled a silent dell Where the folks didn't reside; They had long past unto the wars, Trusting to the mild-eyed stars, Nightly, from their azure towers, To continue watch above the plants, In the midst of which all day The pink sun-light lazily lay. Now each one customer shall confess The unhappy valley’s restlessness. not anything there's immobile— Nothing retailer the airs that brood Over the magic solitude. Ah, by means of no wind are stirred these timber That palpitate just like the kick back seas Around the misty Hebrides! Ah, through no wind these clouds are pushed That rustle in the course of the unquiet Heaven Uneasily, from morn until eventually even, Over the violets there that lie In myriad varieties of the human eye— Over the lilies there that wave And weep above a anonymous grave! They wave:—from out their aromatic tops Eternal dews come down in drops. They weep:—from off their smooth stems Perennial tears descend in gemstones. 1831 Israfel In Heaven a spirit doth live “Whose heart-strings are a lute;” None sing so wildly good As the angel Israfel, And the giddy stars (so legends inform) Ceasing their hymns, attend the spell Of his voice, all mute. Tottering above In her optimum midday The enamoured moon Blushes with love, While, to hear, the crimson levin (With the swift Pleiads, even, Which have been seven,) Pauses in Heaven And they are saying (the starry choir And the entire listening issues) That Israfeli’s fireplace Is due to that lyre By which he sits and sings— The trembling dwelling cord Of these strange strings.
