I have divided into parts to make
the meaning clearer. In the first
I explain how the mountains seem
to detach the night from the walls; in the second,
I describe how a charcoal burner walks through the snow
with a lantern, thus referring to human
experience. The third is a sudden vision of life as an imaginary sweepstake.
The second begins here: The tree-stump, devoured
by the vegetation; and the third here: With rigid mane,
a horse rises from the sea.
