The Pentagram

[Dedicated to George Raffalovich]

In the Years of the Primal Course, in the dawn of terrestrial
Birth,
Man mastered the mammoth and horse, and Man was the
Lord of the Earth.

He made him an hollow skin from the heart of an holy tree,
He compassed the earth therien, and Man was the Lord of
The Sea.

He controlled the vigour of steam, he harnessed the light-
Ning for hire;
He drove the celestial team, and man was the Lord of the
Fire.

Deep-mouthed from their thrones deep-seated, the choirs
Of the ├Žeons declare
The last of the demons defeated, for Man is the Lord of
The Air.

Arise, O Man, in thy strength! the kingdom is thine to
Inherit,
Till the high gods witness at lenght that Man is the Lord
Of his spirit.
