TEARS OF HUMANITY…

in Art & the Unconscious Mind by

Tears of humanity, tears of humanity,

flowing eternally early and late…

Flowing invisibly, flowing in secrecy,

ever abundantly, ever unceasingly –

flowing as rain flows with autumn finality

all through the night like a river in spate

(1849) Fyodor Tyutchev

translation Peter Tempest

Monument to the Dead (1895) by French sculptor Albert Bartholomé

CHARLES BAUDELAIRE ~ EVENING

in The words that make sense... brilliant writings by writers... by
Evening
Jakub Schikaneder – circa 1900
 “I love to watch the fine mist of the night come on,

The windows and the stars illumined, one by one,

The rivers of dark smoke pour upward lazily,

And the moon rise and turn them silver.

I shall see

The springs, the summers, and the autumns slowly pass;

And when old Winter puts his blank face to the glass,

I shall close all my shutters, pull the curtains tight,

And build me stately palaces by candlelight.”

Charles Baudelaire, Les Fleurs du Mal

 

Nikolai Pimonenko, Evening

1900
