Harz Mountains Peaks
Brocken spectrum juts
specter for Dr. Faust
view, Mephistopheles
seeks, picked the site
revolving yellow hues
to blue, against snows
sun sets, thicker vapor
rays mitigate, diffuse
deeper reds, shadows
turn to emerald green.
Goethe had witnessed
inspired by the scene
Germanic legend site
of demonic festivities.
