‘Château de Chillon’ by Beau Ecs Wilder The Society October 31, 2013 Art, Beauty, Poetry 4 Comments “a maudlin gloom closes in…” —Jim Dunlap Delapidated walls, rough, off-white, pale tan, sheer, rise at the edge of Lake Geneva from an isle. Upon the surface of the waters one can see them faintly. Over dark black roofs, more than a mile beyond, the rugged, snow-topped butte of nature sits and whiles eternity away without a smile at Switzerland’s most visited historic pit. Here Daisy Miller paused, where sails glide below rock hills. It captured Jean Courbet the realist, and was by Byron touched. Here Bonivard bent low six long years in the damp vault’s dayless answering, freed only when the Bernese force arrived at Vaud.
