Across the sky, night and the moon are seen
To roll along: moon, day, and night, and night’s
Old awesome constellations evermore…

For ages the army of spirits, once so near,
has been receding farther and farther from us,
banished by the magic wand of science from hearth and home,
from ruined cell and ivied tower,
from haunted glade and lonely mere,
from the riven murky cloud that belches forth the lightning,
and from those fairer clouds that pillow the silvery moon…
~ Frazier, “The Golden Bough.”

Over Orion’s grave low down in the West.
