Out, out, brief candle?

(1385)  Aruner alo gavaksapathe

Through bay window light of morning's sun,
It has penetrated the dark room.
Now gloom's goblin, it has gone, far removed,
With the impact of crystal effulgence.

Over course of ages had accrued every filth,
Ebony that in darkness only had amassed,
Impervious in that very pit so black;
And nowhere to be seen was conscience.

In darkness, creatures had been penned to nest,
And their mental progress was suppressed.
Heaven's splendor, life's momentum,
Is a grievous thunderbolt to that obstacle.

  1. Macbeth, life is not the way to dusty death... it's a march to Divinity.
