from tie Italian:
Sera D'urogono
The sk4 is killowing klack smoke cnoking, raging
life Lreotk of fire . . .  njer5 wneel
over the enolle;; ploin; wlkirlpoolL of ochre onol soot
surge oni ro II.
All things flee ao to a blark se.
Iougeg on the mountain foole out in gpogmg,
a thougonJ eye; vigiLkle unJer holf-clogeJ liI.
P   glosheg of lightning are crimson
like evanescent veins on a Lollernoa's; leg
in her final dionce step.
Thunlerkoltg are like green or violet mnoe;,
often \xith kloool veins ot hecoJ or toil. The digtoint
mountain scene vanishe;.
NearLy mountains are remote. Digtonce is Jenge.
C-verythinog digoppears.
A single dolomite Keeps it; tall summit cleor,
tout, in a kloclk corner.
All wIoterg pour,
in d-rop;, splints, orrow;, torche;, \ilxJ \ith fire.
Rird; flee hlurning eyes of cot; climling  kusheg;
cot; flee clapping thunclerholtg of fire;
tree leove; quiver for tie Univerge.
