Has the sky gone dark?

We look at the sky. Then we have to realise that the blue is no longer the blue we know. In my song solo “Darkend… (verfinstert….)” from “Exil” by Ingeborg Bachmann, the soprano sings :

“O how they darken
the rain darkens the sounds

only the few fall
In brighter zones then she carries the dead up”.

Poem “Exil” by Ingeborg Bachmann (1957)

We have too less rain but more and more dead. What can we do to stop this? Can Irene’s voice lighten the blue a little ?
