A picture for the novella May Day Eve

May Day Eve

May Day Eve (1907) is a novella that envelops you like the wispy fog of a magical spring night (dark magic, that is). Retrieved from the anthology, Masterpieces of Mystery: Mystic-Humorous Stories (1920), edited by Joseph Lewis French.
"I only know that this indescribable vast stirring of the landscape seemed to me as though the earth were unfolding immense sable wings from her sides, and lifting them for silent, gigantic strokes so that she might fly more swiftly from the sun into the night."

Painting by Caspar David Friedrich, Wanderer above the sea of fog, 1813
