The Last Day

When the mountains will quake
And the land will sink
When the sky will break
And the earth will become rink
When the eyes will hang
And the hearts will halt
When the minds will tang
The sudden things unrang
When the shadows will cry
And the nature will fall
When the waters will fry
Hearing the fearful call
When the souls will weep
And the winds will creep
When the hearts will crack
And the eyes will only see black
When the nights will dwell
And the beauty becomes hell
When the houses will raze
And the graves will rise
When the maize will mourn
The death of its own corn
When the cries will cry
And the shadows will sigh
When the living will (precisely) say
Oh! This is the last day!!
