Letitia Elizabeth Landon Quote

The bright cloud shone on the river's face,
But the death-black waters had not a trace
Of the crimson blaze that over them play'd :
It seem'd as if a curse were laid
On the grass, on the river, the tree, and the flower,
And shut them out from the sunbeam's power ;


The Golden Violet - The Broken Spell - The Golden Violet (1827)
