What The Screamer Saw: Inspired by Edvard Munch

O Lord! O Life!
I scream at the sight---
The cathedral is burning,
A bright star in the night!
The cathedral is burning!
I can see from afar
The cathedral is burning
As bright as a star!
 
O Mercy! O Fate!
And as if from Hell's Gate
The gargoyles go flying
At a maddening rate!
The gargoyles go flying
While smoke billows round!
The gargoyles go flying
And again my scream sounds!
 
O Heaven! O Fear!
I can feel the heat here!
The fires are spreading!
Such chaos and tears!
The fires are spreading
And covering all!
The fires are spreading!
The city will fall!
 
O Goodness! O My!
The gargoyles streak by!
The cathedral is burning
and smoke mars the sky!
The cathedral is burning 
Just over the ridge!
The cathedral is burning
As I stand on the bridge!
