Mother of this unfathomable world!
Favor my solemn song, for I have loved Thee ever,
and thee only.
I have watched thy shadow,
and the darkness of thy steps,
And my heart ever gazes on the depth of thy deep mysteries.
I have made my bed in charnels and on coffins,
where black death keeps record of the trophies won from thee, hoping to still these obstinate questionings of thee and thine, by forcing some lone ghost,
Thy messenger, to render up the tale of what we are.
In lone and silent hours, When night makes a weird sound of its own stillness,
Like an inspired and desperate alchemist staking his very life on some dark hope,
Have I mixed awful talk and asking looks with my most innocent love, until strange tears,
Uniting with those breathless kisses, made such magic as compels the charmèd night to render up thy charge.
