Behind Me dips Eternity

Behind Me dips Eternity

Behind Me dips Eternity
Before Me Immortality
Myself the Term between
Death but the Drift of Eastern Gray,
Dissolving into Dawn away,
Before the West begin

‘Tis Kingdoms afterward they say
In perfect pauseless Monarchy
Whose Prince is Son of None
Himself His Dateless Dynasty
Himself Himself diversify
In Duplicate divine

‘Tis Miracle before Me then
‘Tis Miracle behind between
A Crescent in the Sea
With Midnight to the North of Her
And Midnight to the South of Her
And Maelstrom in the Sky
