holding hands

in the water

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;

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
