(Volcano page 3)
...a birth in smoke and fire upon the slopes of mount Etna!
Obelia's coming coincided with several simultaneous eruptions. The sky was ablaze with roaring flame. Dust and rock fell like red snow, crackling and searing the cold Sicilian air... and there, next to us, half-risen from a fissure - the demon!
I moved to protect my beloved
woman and child...
 ...but no sooner was our baby born than
the demon was upon her...
