Playthings, dead things

The agony is exquisite, is it not? A broken heart. You think you will die. But you just keep living. Day after day, after terrible day.

– Charles Dickens – Great Expectations –

Les Champs léthargiques II

La foule des vivants rit et suit sa folie,
Tantôt pour son plaisir, tantôt pour son tourment ;
Mais par les morts muets, par les morts qu’on oublie,
Moi, rêveur, je me sens regardé fixement.
[…]

Moi, c’est là que je vis ! — cueillant les roses blanches,
Consolant les tombeaux délaissés trop longtemps,
Je passe et je reviens, je dérange les branches,
Je fais du bruit dans l’herbe, et les morts sont contents.

Là je rêve ! et, rôdant dans le champ léthargique,
Je vois, avec des yeux dans ma pensée ouverts,
Se transformer mon âme en un monde magique,
Miroir mystérieux du visible univers.

This palindrom was first discovered on the floor of a Pompei villa but it has been used in all kinds of places, throughout the centuries. Although its meaning remains a mystery, it is known to have been a protection talisman for centuries, keeping harm from coming to those who displayed or carried it.

You’d speak my name in tongues

You’d speak my name in tongues, you’d holler out in spades
Oh, how I wish you could love me again
Into the darkness my baby flies,
Into the darkness I say goodbye

Pale, beyond Porch and Portal

Pale, beyond porch and portal,
Crowned with calm leaves, she stands
Who gathers all things mortal
With cold immortal hands;
[…]
She waits for each and other,

She waits for all men born;
Forgets the earth her mother,
The life of fruits and corn

Algernon Swinburne The Garden of Proserpine

The Empty House

See this house, how dark it is
Beneath its vast-boughed trees!
[…]

“Secrets”, sighs the night-wind,
“Vacancy is all I find;
Every keyhole I have made
Wails a summons, faint and sad,
No voice ever answers me,
Only vacancy.”

[…]
