Edward Munch, the Scream as layer over St. Jerome in the desert, Vativan Museum, Leonardo da Vinci
I was walking along the road with two Friends
the Sun was setting — The Sky turned a bloody red
And I felt a whiff of Melancholy – I stood
Still, deathly tired – over the blue-black
Fjord and City hung Blood and Tongues of Fire
My Friends walked on – I remained behind
- shivering with Anxiety – I felt the great Scream in Nature
Written by Edward Munch on the back of the 4th version
