			Beyond the Sundered Seas!
	 
	The mewing cats outside my window deride the ear,
	the cold winter snows still pound beyond the tempered sphere;
	the heart grows fond of love again, yet in this bleak scene
	regret sneaks in and shows his dragonhead: the red and golden gleam
	of razors and mirrors, flay the wounded soul to death;
	and in this moment between sleep and waking, I see the truth:
	in the movement of my mind, the familiar forms arise:
	the elder gods who roam amid the green and yellow grass, their eyes
	enchanted by the bliss of faŽries dancing on their secret mounds,
	and, in that sudden feeling of the heart as it wakes and pounds,
	I know the moment of her touch that graces me with light
	and so much regret and sorrow, the maiden of my life: her bright
	candle shining in the distant darkness of my broken mind:
	my Lady, for whom I travel now among the living dead in kind;
	in her service instructing, teaching, and showing forth her ways:
	her mysteries abounding in my thought like falling stars, their sweet gaze
	gleaming beyond the galaxies, where all light meets in this bright blaze: 
	on the edge of Timeís kingdom, she turns to meet me, beyond the sundered seas!
