At famed Arsinoo!—make my keepers bless, And howl sad dirges to the answering broezo,
Amphibious, hybrid things, that died as men,
Drown'd, bang'd, empaled, to rise, as gods, again ;Of their own freedom from the altar's chain, Ask them, what mighty secret lurks below Should mock thus all that thou thy blood hast sold, This seven-fold mystery—can they tell theo ? No; And I my truth, pride, freedom, to uphold ? Gravely they keep that only secret, well It must not be :-think’st thou that Christian sect, And fairly kept-that they have none to tell ; Whose followers, quick as broken waves, erect And, duped themselves, console their humbled pride Their crests anew and swell into a tide,
By duping thenceforth all mankind beside.
From the great Orphic Egg have wing'd abroad, Our solemu fraud, our mystic mummery knows, That, still t uphold our Temple's ancient boast, Whose wounding flash thus ever 'mong the signs And seem most holy, we must cheat the most ; Of a fast-falling creed, prelusive shines,
Work the best miracles, wrap nonsense round Threat'ning such change as do the awful freaks In pomp and darkness, till it scems profound ; Of summer lightning, ere the tempest breaks. Play on the hopes, the terrors of mankind,
With changeful skill; and make the human mind But, to my point-a youth of this vain school, Like our owu Sanctuary, where no ray, But one, whom Doubt itself hath faild to cool But by the Priest's permission, wins its wayDown to that freezing point where Priests despair Where through the gloom as wave our wizard-rods, Of any spark from th' altar catching there- Monsters, at will, are conjured into Gods ; Hath, some nights since—it was, methinks, the night While Reason, like a grave-faced mummy, stands, That follow'd the full Moon's great annual rito With her arms swathed in hieroglyphic bands. Through the dark, winding ducts, that downward But chiefly in that skill with which we use stray
Man's wildest passions for Religion's views, To these earth-hidden temples, track’d his way, Yoking them to her car like fiery steeds, Just at that hour when, round the Shrine, and me, Lies the main art in which our craft succeeds. The choir of blooming nymphs thou long'st to see, And oh! be blest, ye men of yore, whose toil Sing their last night-hymn in the Sanctuary. Hath, for her use, scoop'd out from Egypt's soil The clangor of the marvellous Gato, that stands This hidden Paradise, this mine of fanes, At the Well's lowest depth-which none but hands Gardens, and palaces, where Pleasure reigns Of new, untaught adventurers, from above,
In a rich, sunless empire of her own, Who know not the safe path, e'er dare to move- With all earth's luxuries lighting up her throne ;Gave sigual that a foot profane was nigh :- A realm for mystery made, which undermines 'Twas the Greek youth, who, by that morning's sky, Tho Nile itself, and, 'neath the Twelve Great Shrines Had been observed, curiously wand'ring round That keep Initiation's holy rite, The mighty fanes of our sepulchral ground. Spreads its long labyrinths of unearthly light,
A light that knows no change—its brooks that rum
And heart and nervo unshrinking to the last

Feeding on such illusions as prepare
Till, if our Sage be not tamed down, at length,
Yes-such the spells shall haunt his eye, his ear, Mix with his night-dreams, form his atmosphere ;
