ITALY:Vesuvius:Lava comes. Pompeii, antique print, 1877

Price: £12.99

CAPTION PRINTED BELOW PICTURE: 'The Lava comes ! I come ! Depart from house and hall, Nor barn, nor cellar heeding ! Haste, fly ! Above the outer wall I climb and spread a smoky pall, Still onward fiercely speeding. Above the fruitful, vine-grown land, Where ripening grapes looked cheery, I strew hot ashes and burning sand, I clasp the trees with my fiery hand, And leave them black and dreary. My Scorching breath shall quickly blast the fount that freshly plashes; My parching footsteps travel fast; The grove is shrivelled where they have passed, And all is dust and ashes !'
