Al Que Quiere!  (1917) 
William Carlos Williams
Winter Sunset
Boston: The Four Seas Company pages 21-22

Then I raised my head
and stared out over
the blue February waste
to the blue bank of hill
with stars on it

in strings and festoons—
but above that:
one opaque
stone of a cloud
just on the hill
left and right
as far as I could see;
and above that
a red streak, then
icy blue sky!

It was a fearful thing
to come into a man's heart
at that time: that stone
over the little blinking stars
they'd set there.
