LA FALO DE USXERO-DOMO


Dum la tuta dauxro de teda, malhela, sensona tago en la auxtuno de
la jaro, kiam la nuboj pendis preme kaj malalte en la cxielo, mi
pasis sola, sur cxevalo, tra malkutime morna kamparregiono; kaj
finfine min trovis, dum estigxis la vesperaj ombroj, cxe vidpunkto
pri la melankolia Usxero-Domo. Mi malscias la kialon de tio--sed je
la unua ekvido pri la konstruajxo, sento de netolerebla malfelicxo
invadis mian spiriton. Mi diras "netolerebla" cxar trankviligis
tiun senton nenia duonplezuriga (cxar poezia) sensaco kiun kutime
registras la menso alfronte al la plej severaj naturaj bildoj pri
sovagxeco aux teruro. Mi rigardis la scenon antaux mi--la nuran
domon kaj la simplajn pejzagxtrajtojn de la bieno--la mornajn
murojn--la malplenajn okulaspektajn fenestrojn--kelkajn fetorajn
kareksojn--kaj kelkajn blankajn trunkojn de putrintaj arboj--kun
nepra depremo de animo kiun mi scipovas kompari kun nenia surtera
sensaco pli tauxge ol kun la postrevo de opiofestinto--la amara
replongxo en cxiutagan vivadon--la malbelega forfalo de la vualo.
Ekestis glaciigxo, sinkado, malsanigxo de la koro--senkompensa
morneco de pensado kiun sukcesis survojigi gxis sublimeco nenia
premego de la imagpovo. Kio--mi pauxzis por primediti la temon--kio
min tiom maltrankviligis dum mi rigardis Usxero-Domon? Estis mistero
nepre nesolvebla; cetere mi malsukcesis barakti kun la ombraj
fantazioj kiuj min kunpremis dum mi meditadis. Mi devis min turni al
la maltauxga konkludo ke, dum sendube ja ekzistas kombinoj
