Sarah Bernhardt (1844-1923)... Ophelia, white marble 1880




Element 

They all swim in this
water

Fish
with big eyes
and sad mouths
swim around me
sad
without hands
holding hands

fish
in the water
in which I
drown

Come, O come!...



1st – 2nd century A.DRoman





Come, O come!...
I am numb
With the lonely lust of devildom.
Thrust the sword through the galling fetter,
All-devourer, all-begetter;
Give me the sign of the Open Eye,
And the token erect of thorny thigh,
And the word of madness and mystery,
O Pan! Io Pan!Io Pan! Io Pan Pan! Pan!

from Magick in Theory and Practice, Hymn to Pan, Aleister Crowley
