by Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869 - 1935)

The dark hills
Language: English 
Available translation(s): GER
Dark hills at evening in the west,
Where sunset hovers like a sound
Of golden horns that sang to rest
Old bones of warriors under ground,
Far now from all the bannered ways
Where flash the legions of the sun,
You fade--as if the last of days
Were fading, and all wars were done.
