The Land God Forgot

The lonely sunsets flare forlorn, Down valleys dreadly desolate;
The lordly mountains soar in scorn, As still as death, as stern as fate.

The lonely sunsets flame and die; The giant valleys gulp the night;
The monster mountains scrape the sky, Where eager stars are diamond-bright.

So gaunt against the gibbous moon, Piercing the silence velvet-piled,
A lone wolf howls his ancient rune –

O outcast land! O leper land! Let the lone wolf - cry all express
The hate insensate of thy hand, Thy heart’s abysmal loneliness.

– Robert Service
