Next Wednesday, 22nd April, is Earth Day, an annual event to remind ourselves of the importance of protecting the world in which we live. ‘Darkness’ by Byron seemed a fitting way to mark the occasion (albeit prematurely), as relevant now as it is in 1816.
by Lord Byron
I had a dream, which was not all a dream.
The bright sun was extinguish’d, and the stars
Did wander darkling in the eternal space,
Rayless, and pathless, and the icy earth
Swung blind and blackening in the moonless air;
