"A Frowning Continent appeard Where Enion in the Desart
Terrified in her own Creation, viewing her woven shadow Sat in a dread intoxication of Repentance & Contrition There is from Great Eternity a mild & pleasant rest Namd Beulah a Soft Moony Universe feminine lovely Pure mild & Gentle given in Mercy to those who sleep Eternally. Created by the Lamb of God around On all sides within & without the Universal Man The Daughters of Beulah follow sleepers in all their Dreams Creating Spaces lest they fall into Eternal Death

The Circle of Destiny complete they gave to it a Space And namd the Space Ulro & brooded over it in care & love They said The Spectre is in every man insane & most Deformd Thro the three heavens descending in fury & fire We meet it with our Songs & loving blandishments & give To it a form of vegetation But this Spectre of Tharmas Is Eternal Death What shall we do O God pity & help So spoke they & closd the Gate of the Tongue in trembling fear
What have I done! said Enion accursed wretch! What deed."
Well this is a mouthful!
