I hear an army charging upon the land (Pablo)

8 09 2008

I hear an army charging upon the land,
I see the horses plunging, foam at their knees,
Arrogant, in black armour, behind them stand
Disdaining the reins, with fluttering whips, the charioteers.

They cry into the night their battle name,
I moan in sleep when I hear afar their whirling laughter.
Cleaving the gloom of dreams, a blinding flame
Clanging, clanging upon my heart as upon an anvil.

They are shaking in triumph their long green hair,
They come out of the sea and run shouting by the shore…
Oh, my heart, have you no wisdom thus to despair?
Oh, my love, my love, my love, why have you left me alone?
James Joyce (1882-1941)
