    Festus – XLII (Philip James Bailey Poems)

    The soul–state, intermediate ‘twixt earth’s lifeAnd the world future, unconceived till seen,We search with curious awe; mark dormant death;Nor, joyless, evil accost, by heaven restrained;From bonds aeonian loosened, ere the end:View, visionary, the circle of false gods,Refractions of the sole … Continue reading
