Faust, by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Open Field

XXIV

Night

Open Field

(Faust and Mephistopheles speeding onward on black horses.)

Faust

What weave they there round the raven-stone?

Mephistopheles

I know not what they are brewing and doing.

Faust

Soaring up, sweeping down, bowing and bending!

Mephistopheles

A witches’-guild.

Faust

They scatter, devote and doom!

Mephistopheles

On! on!
