Red came shouting from the ball of fire,

trailing darts across the sky.

Never quiet, red pumps life through arteries,

bleeding heart of earth, darkly staining soil.

Yearly, monthly, red colors the changes of nature;

burns a beacon, flashes stop.

Red blushes the shame of debt,

Colors nectar of joy and drunkenness;

enfolds setting sun;

tints last glow of light.

Red dies with life.
