Allfather * took Night, and Day her son, and gave to them two horses and two chariots, and sent them up into the heavens, to ride round about the earth every two half-days. Night rides before with the horse named Frosty-Mane, […] The horse that Day has is called Sheen-Mane, and he illumines all the air and the earth from his mane.

Fin’Amor

Le bonheur vient, nous touche et nous parle à genoux
Pressons nos mains. Sois grave. Écoute encor… Personne
N’est plus heureux ce soir, n’est plus divin que nous.

C’est notre heure éternelle, éternellement grande […]
Comme un voile embaumé de rose et de lavande

– Pierre Louÿs – Psyché

Lorsqu’au cœur des ténèbres s’embrasera la dague

« When in the heart of darkness the dagger will be set ablaze, follow the wand and the key will come to you »

They remembered this ancient adage when in the darkness arose a sparkle of hope ; behind a loose stone, a metallic glint.

One by one we go into the Dark

Make of me a weapon, make me a vessel of proof
One by one we go into the dark
The movement itself is the only truth

Dost thou see a book before thee?

Thomasin: Black Phillip, I conjure thee to speak to me. Speak as thou dost speak to Jonas and Mercy. Dost thou understand my English tongue? Answer me.
Black Phillip: What dost thou want?
Thomasin: What canst thou give?
Black Phillip:
Wouldst thou like the taste of butter? A pretty dress? Wouldst thou like to live deliciously?
Thomasin: Yes.
Black Phillip: Wouldst thou like to see the world?
Thomasin: What will you from me?
Black Phillip: Dost thou see a book before thee? Remove thy shift.
Thomasin: I cannot write my name.
Black Phillip: I will guide thy hand.

Summer Solstice

Run laughing towards the serpent’s jaws, where England meets the sea
Breathe in the old dreams of the dead that travel on the winds
A taste of salt, of love, of things left unsaid, undone
A face like sunlight that burns my eyes and my soul
That haunts and comforts, whispers of what could have been
In broken days that lie beneath a broken tree
I call to no one or to the gods, who never reply
The years that have melted away, and a future like a sickness waits to destroy
I will drown in the blood of summer

 – Sol Invictus – Blood of  Summer –
