Ah! bless'd are they for whom 'mid all their pains
That faithful and unalter'd love remains;
Who, Life wreck'd round them,--hunted from their rest,--
And, by all else forsaken or distress'd,--
Claim, in one heart, their sanctuary and shrine--
As I, my Mother, claim'd my place in thine!
Heaven was originally precisely that: the starry sky, dating back to the earliest Egyptian texts, which include magic spells that enable the soul to be sewn in the body of the great mother, Nut, literally "night," like the seed of a plant, which is also a jewel and a star. The Greek Elysian fields derive from the same celestial topography: the Egyptian "Field of Rushes," the eastern stars at dawn where the soul goes to be purified. That there is another, mirror world, a world of light, and that this world is simply the skyand a step further, the breath of the sky, the weather, the very airis a formative belief of great antiquity that has continued to the present day with the godhead becoming brightness itself: dios/theos (Greek); deus/divine/diana (Latin); devas (Sanskrit); daha (Arabic); day (English).
Susan Brind Morrow, Wolves and Honey
Violin was torn to pieces begging,
And then broke out in tears
That Drum couldn't handle it any longer,
It's all right, it's all right, it's all right! He got tired, Not hearing out Violin's speech, and Sneaked out to the Kuznetsky, And made off. The orchestra looked strangely, as Violin cried herself out Wordless Without tempo And only somewhere Foolish Cymbals Were banging out: What is it? How is it? Then when Helicon Copper-faced Sweating Shouted: Stupid! Softy! Wipe it off! I got up, Shaking, crawled over the notes, Bending low under the horror of the pupitre, For some reason cried out, Oh, God! Threw myself at her wooden neck, Violin, you know? We are so alike: I do also Shout But still can not prove anything either! The musicians are laughing: Gotcha! He's dating a wooden girlfriend! Smart one, ha! I don't give a damn! I am worthy! You know what, Violin? Why don't we Move in together! Ha?
