The Book Of The Visions Seen By Orm The Celt
Born in the evening of the world, and looking
Back from the sunset to the gates of morning.
And he is aged early, in a time
When all are aged early,—he was born
In twilight times, and in his soul is twilight.
O brother, hold me by the hand, and hearken,
For these things I shall phrase are thine and mine,
And all men's,—all are seeking for a sign.
Thou wert born yesterday, but thou art old,
Weary to-day, to-morrow thou wilt sleep—
Take these for kisses on thy closing eyelids.
