Demon

(“Demon,” painting by Zichy Mihály, 1878)

“I Heard an Angel,” by William Blake

 

I heard an Angel singing

When the day was springing

Mercy Pity Peace

Is the worlds release

 

Thus he sung all day

Over the new mown hay

Till the sun went down

And haycocks looked brown

 

I heard a Devil curse

Over the heath & the furze

Mercy could be no more

If there was nobody poor

 

And pity no more could be

If all were as happy as we

At his curse the sun went down

And the heavens gave a frown

 

Down pourd the heavy rain

Over the new reapd grain

And Miseries increase

Is Mercy Pity Peace

 

***

Modest Moussorgsky, “Pictures at an Exhibition: Gnomus”
