"The broken sunset declined..."

The broken sunset declined and was gone
and it seemed a delusion to ask for the gifts of the sky.
You lowered your eyes. The moon’s thorn blossomed
and you became afraid of the mountain’s shadows.

From "Erotikos Logos" by George Seferis

"Sun and Moon" from Aurora consurgens, 15th century

I love it, too. All the illustrations from Aurora consurgens are mind-blowing. I've posted several on the blog--they should pop up if you use the search box.
