FZ1-9.1;   E304|        And then they wanderd far away she sought for them in vain   t464
FZ1-9.2;   E304|        In weeping blindness stumbling she followd them oer rocks & mountains
FZ1-9.3;   E304|        Rehumanizing from the Spectre in pangs of maternal love
FZ1-9.4;   E304|        Ingrate they wanderd scorning her drawing her Spectrous Life
FZ1-9.5;   E304|        Repelling her away & away by a dread repulsive power
FZ1-9.6;   E304|        Into Non Entity revolving round in dark despair.
FZ1-9.7;   E304|        And drawing in the Spectrous life in pride and haughty joy   t465
FZ1-9.8;   E304|        Thus Enion gave them all her spectrous life   t466

FZ1-9.12; E305|        She also took an atom of space & opend its center
FZ1-9.13; E305|        Into Infinitude & ornamented it with wondrous art
FZ1-9.14; E305|        Astonishd sat her Sisters of Beulah to see her soft affections
FZ1-9.15; E305|        To Enion & her children & they ponderd these things wondring
FZ1-9.16; E305|        And they Alternate kept watch over the Youthful terrors
FZ1-9.17; E305|        They saw not yet the Hand Divine for it was not yet reveald
FZ1-9.18; E305|        But they went on in Silent Hope & Feminine repose
FZ1-9.19; E305|        But Los & Enitharmon delighted in the Moony spaces of Eno   t470
FZ1-9.20; E305|        Nine Times they livd among the forests, feeding n sweet fruits
FZ1-9.21; E305|        And nine bright Spaces wanderd weaving mazes of delight
FZ1-9.22; E305|        Snaring the wild Goats for their milk they eat the flesh of Lambs
FZ1-9.23; E305|        A male & female naked & ruddy as the pride of summer
FZ1-9.24; E305|        Alternate Love & Hate his breast; hers Scorn & Jealousy
FZ1-9.25; E305|        In embryon passions. they kiss'd not nor embrac'd for shame & fear   t471
FZ1-9.26; E305|        His head beamd light & in his vigorous voice was prophecy
FZ1-9.27; E305|        He could controll the times & seasons, & the days & years
FZ1-9.28; E305|        She could controll the spaces, regions, desart, flood & forest
FZ1-9.29; E305|        But had no power to weave a Veil of covering for her Sins
FZ1-9.30; E305|        She drave the Females all away from Los
FZ1-9.31; E305|        And Los drave all the Males from her away
FZ1-9.32; E305|        They wanderd long, till they sat down upon the margind sea.
FZ1-9.33; E305|        Conversing with the visions of Beulah in dark slumberous bliss   t472

FZ1-9.34; E305|        But the two youthful wonders wanderd in the world of Tharmas   t473
FZ1-9.35; E305|        Thy name is Enitharmon; said the fierce prophetic boy   t474
FZ1-9.36; E305|        While thy mild voice fills all these Caverns with sweet harmony
FZ1-9.37; E305|        O how our Parents sit & mourn in their silent secret bowers   t475

FZ1-10.1;   E305|        But Enitharmon answerd with a dropping tear & frowning   t476
FZ1-10.2;   E305|        Dark as a dewy morning when the crimson light appears   t477
FZ1-10.3;   E305|        To make us happy let them weary their immortal powers   t478
FZ1-10.4;   E305|        While we draw in their sweet delights while we return them scorn   t479
FZ1-10.5;   E305|        On scorn to feed our discontent; for if we grateful prove
FZ1-10.6;   E305|        They will withhold sweet love, whose food is thorns & bitter roots.
FZ1-10.7;   E305|        We hear the warlike clarions we view the turning spheres   t480
FZ1-10.8;   E305|        Yet Thou in indolence reposest holding me in bonds
FZ1-10.9;   E305|        Hear! I will sing a Song of Death! it is a Song of Vala!   t481
FZ1-10.10; E305|        The Fallen Man takes his repose: Urizen sleeps in the porch   t482
FZ1-10.11; E305|        Luvah and Vala woke & flew up from the Human Heart   t483
FZ1-10.12; E305|        Into the Brain; from thence upon the pillow Vala slumber'd.
FZ1-10.13; E305|        And Luvah siez'd the Horses of Light, & rose into the Chariot of Day
FZ1-10.14; E305|        Sweet laughter siezd me in my sleep! silent & close I laughd   t484
FZ1-10.15; E305|        For in the visions of Vala I walkd with the mighty Fallen One   t485
FZ1-10.16; E305|        I heard his voice among the branches, & among sweet flowers.   t486

FZ1-10.17; E306|        Why is the light of Enitharmon darken'd in dewy morn   t487
FZ1-10.18; E306|        Why is the silence of Enitharmon a terror & her smile a whirlwind   t488
FZ1-10.19; E306|        Uttering this darkness in my halls, in the pillars of my Holy-ones
FZ1-10.20; E306|        Why dost thou weep as Vala? & wet thy veil with dewy tears,   t489
FZ1-10.21; E306|        In slumbers of my night-repose, infusing a false morning?
FZ1-10.22; E306|        Driving the Female Emanations all away from Los   t490
FZ1-10.23; E306|        I have refusd to look upon the Universal Vision
FZ1-10.24; E306|        And wilt thou slay with death him who devotes himself to thee   t491
FZ1-10.25; E306|        Once born for the sport & amusement of Man now born to drink up all his Powers

FZ1-11.1;   E306|        I heard the sounding sea; I heard the voice weaker and weaker;
FZ1-11.2;   E306|        The voice came & went like a dream, I awoke in my sweet bliss.
FZ1-11.3;   E306|        Then Los smote her upon the Earth twas long eer she revivd
FZ1-11.4;   E306|        He answer'd, darkning more with indignation hid in smiles   t492

FZ1-11.5;   E306|        I die not Enitharmon tho thou singst thy Song of Death   t493
FZ1-11.6;   E306|        Nor shalt thou me torment For I behold the Fallen Man   t494
FZ1-11.7;   E306|        Seeking to comfort Vala, she will not be comforted   t495
FZ1-11.8;   E306|        She rises from his throne and seeks the shadows of her garden
FZ1-11.9;   E306|        Weeping for Luvah lost, in the bloody beams of your false morning
FZ1-11.10; E306|        Sickning lies the Fallen Man his head sick his heart faint   t496
FZ1-11.11; E306|        Mighty atchievement of your power! Beware the punishment
FZ1-11.12; E306|        I see, invisible decend into the Gardens of Vala
FZ1-11.13; E306|        Luvah walking on the winds, I see the invisible knife
FZ1-11.14; E306|        I see the shower of blood: I see the swords & spears of futurity
FZ1-11.15; E306|        Tho in the Brain of Man we live, & in his circling Nerves.
FZ1-11.16; E306|        Tho' this bright world of all our joy is in the Human Brain.
FZ1-11.17; E306|        Where Urizen & all his Hosts hang their immortal lamps
FZ1-11.18; E306|        Thou neer shalt leave this cold expanse where watry Tharmas mourns

FZ1-11.19; E306|        So spoke Los. Scorn & Indignation rose upon Enitharmon
FZ1-11.20; E306|        Then Enitharmon reddning fierce stretchd her immortal hands   t497

FZ1-11.21; E306|        Descend O Urizen descend with horse & chariots
FZ1-11.22; E306|        Threaten not me O visionary thine the punishment
FZ1-11.23; E306|        The Human Nature shall no more remain nor Human acts
FZ1-11.24; E306|        Form the rebellious Spirits of Heaven. but War & Princedom & Victory & Blood   t498

FZ1-12.1;   E306|        Night darkend as she spoke! a shuddring ran from East to West   t500
FZ1-12.2;   E306|        A Groan was heard on high. The warlike clarions ceast. the Spirits
FZ1-12.3;   E306|        Of Luvah & Vala shudderd in their Orb: an orb of blood!

FZ1-12.4;   E306|        Eternity groand & was troubled at the Image of Eternal Death
FZ1-12.5;   E306|        The Wandering Man bow'd his faint head and Urizen descended
FZ1-12.6;   E306|        And the one must have murderd the other if he had not descended   t501

FZ1-12.7;   E307|        Indignant muttering low thunders; Urizen descended
FZ1-12.8;   E307|        Gloomy sounding, Now I am God from Eternity to Eternity

FZ1-12.9;   E307|        Sullen sat Los plotting Revenge. Silent he eye'd the Prince   t502
FZ1-12.10; E307|        Of Light. Silent the prince of Light viewd Los. at length a brooded   t503
FZ1-12.11; E307|        Smile broke from Urizen for Enitharmon brightend more & more
FZ1-12.12; E307|        Sullen he lowerd on Enitharmon but he smild on Los

FZ1-12.13; E307|        Saying Thou art the Lord of Luvah into thine hands I give
FZ1-12.14; E307|        The prince of Love the murderer his soul is in thine hands
FZ1-12.15; E307|        Pity not Vala for she pitied not the Eternal Man
FZ1-12.16; E307|        Nor pity thou the cries of Luvah. Lo these starry hosts
FZ1-12.17; E307|        They are thy servants if thou wilt obey my awful Law
FZ1-12.18; E307|        Los answerd furious art thou one of those who when most complacent
FZ1-12.19; E307|        Mean mischief most. If you are such Lo! I am also such
FZ1-12.20; E307|        One must be master. try thy Arts I also will try mine
FZ1-12.21; E307|        For I percieve Thou hast Abundance which I claim as mine

FZ1-12.22; E307|        Urizen startled stood but not Long soon he cried
FZ1-12.23; E307|        Obey my voice young Demon I am God from Eternity to Eternity

FZ1-12.24; E307|        Thus Urizen spoke collected in himself in awful pride

FZ1-12.25; E307|        Art thou a visionary of Jesus the soft delusion of Eternity
FZ1-12.26; E307|        Lo I am God the terrible destroyer & not the Saviour
FZ1-12.27; E307|        Why should the Divine Vision compell the sons of Eden
FZ1-12.28; E307|        to forego each his own delight to war against his Spectre   t504
FZ1-12.29; E307|        The Spectre is the Man the rest is only delusion & fancy

FZ1-12.30; E307|        So spoke the Prince of Light & sat beside the Seat of Los
FZ1-12.31; E307|        Upon the sandy shore rested his chariot of fire

FZ1-12.32; E307|        Ten thousand thousand were his hosts of spirits on the wind:
FZ1-12.33; E307|        Ten thousand thousand glittering Chariots shining in the sky:
FZ1-12.34; E307|        They pour upon the golden shore beside the silent ocean.
FZ1-12.35; E307|        Rejoicing in the Victory & the heavens were filld with blood   t505

FZ1-12.36; E307|        The Earth spread forth her table wide. the Night a silver cup
FZ1-12.37; E307|        Fill'd with the wine of anguish waited at the golden feast
FZ1-12.38; E307|        But the bright Sun was not as yet; he filling all the expanse
FZ1-12.39; E307|        Slept as a bird in the blue shell that soon shall burst away

FZ1-12.40; E307|        Los saw the wound of his blow he saw he pitied he wept   t506
FZ1-12.41; E307|        Los now repented that he had smitten Enitharmon he felt love
FZ1-12.42; E307|        Arise in all his Veins he threw his arms around her loins
FZ1-12.43; E307|        To heal the wound of his smiting

FZ1-12.44; E307|        They eat the fleshly bread, they drank the nervous wine   t507

FZ1-13.1;   E308|        They listend to the Elemental Harps & Sphery Song
FZ1-13.2;   E308|        They view'd the dancing Hours, quick sporting thro' the sky
FZ1-13.3;   E308|        With winged radiance scattering joys thro the ever changing light

FZ1-13.4;   E308|        But Luvah & Vala standing in the bloody sky   t508
FZ1-13.5;   E308|        On high remaind alone forsaken in fierce jealousy
FZ1-13.6;   E308|        They stood above the heavens forsaken desolate suspended in blood
FZ1-13.7;   E308|        Descend they could not. nor from Each other avert their eyes
FZ1-13.8;   E308|        Eternity appeard above them as One Man infolded
FZ1-13.9;   E308|        In Luvah[s] robes of blood & bearing all his afflictions   t509
FZ1-13.10; E308|        As the sun shines down on the misty earth Such was the Vision

FZ1-13.11; E308|        But purple night and crimson morning & golden day descending   t510
FZ1-13.12; E308|        Thro' the clear changing atmosphere display'd green fields among
FZ1-13.13; E308|        The varying clouds, like paradises stretch'd in the expanse
FZ1-13.14; E308|        With towns & villages and temples, tents sheep-folds and pastures
FZ1-13.15; E308|        Where dwell the children of the elemental worlds in harmony.
FZ1-13.16; E308|        Not long in harmony they dwell, their life is drawn away   t511
FZ1-13.17; E308|        And wintry woes succeed; successive driven into the Void
FZ1-13.18; E308|        Where Enion craves: successive drawn into the golden feast

FZ1-13.19; E308|        And Los & Enitharmon sat in discontent & scorn   t512
FZ1-13.20; E308|        The Nuptial Song arose from all the thousand thousand spirits   t513
FZ1-13.21; E308|        Over the joyful Earth & Sea, and ascended into the Heavens
FZ1-13.22; E308|        For Elemental Gods their thunderous Organs blew; creating
FZ1-13.23; E308|        Delicious Viands. Demons of Waves their watry Eccho's woke!
FZ1-13.24; E308|        Bright Souls of vegetative life, budding and blossoming   t514

FZ1-14.1;   E308|        Stretch their immortal hands to smite the gold & silver Wires
FZ1-14.2;   E308|        And with immortal Voice soft warbling fill all Earth & Heaven.
FZ1-14.3;   E308|        With doubling Voices & loud Horns wound round sounding

FZ1-14.12; E308|        Red with the blood of Men. swells lustful round my rocky knees
FZ1-14.13; E308|        My clouds are not the clouds of verdant fields & groves of fruit
FZ1-14.14; E308|        But Clouds of Human Souls. my nostrils drink the lives of Men   t516

FZ1-14.15; E308|        The Villages Lament. they faint outstretchd upon the plain
FZ1-14.16; E308|        Wailing runs round the Valleys from the Mill & from the Barn   t517

FZ1-14.17; E309|        But most the polishd Palaces dark silent bow with dread   t518
FZ1-14.18; E309|        Hiding their books & pictures. underneath the dens of Earth

FZ1-14.19; E309|        The Cities send to one another saying My sons are Mad

FZ1-15.13; E309|        Siezd his bright Sheephook studded with gems & gold, he Swung it round
FZ1-15.14; E309|        His head shrill sounding in the sky, down rushd the Sun with noise
FZ1-15.15; E309|        Of war, The Mountains fled away they sought a place beneath
FZ1-15.16; E309|        Vala remaind in desarts of dark solitude. nor Sun nor Moon

FZ1-15.17; E309|        By night nor day to comfort her, she labourd in thick smoke   t525
FZ1-15.18; E309|        Tharmas endurd not, he fled howling. then a barren waste sunk
FZ1-15.19; E309|        Conglobing in the dark confusion, Mean time Los was born
FZ1-15.20; E309|        And Thou O Enitharmon! Hark I hear the hammers of Los   t526

FZ1-16.1;   E309|        They melt the bones of Vala, & the bones of Luvah into wedges
FZ1-16.2;   E309|        The innumerable sons & daughters of Luvah closd in furnaces
FZ1-16.3;   E309|        Melt into furrows. winter blows his bellows: ice & Snow
FZ1-16.4;   E309|        Tend the dire anvils. Mountains mourn & Rivers faint & fail

FZ1-16.5;   E309|        There is no City nor Corn-field nor Orchard! all is Rock & Sand
FZ1-16.6;   E309|        There is no Sun nor Moon nor Star. but rugged wintry rocks
FZ1-16.7;   E309|        Justling together in the void suspended by inward fires
FZ1-16.8;   E309|        Impatience now no longer can endure. Distracted Luvah

FZ1-16.9;   E309|        Bursting forth from the loins of Enitharmon, Thou fierce Terror
FZ1-16.10; E309|        Go howl in vain, Smite Smite his fetters Smite O wintry hammers
FZ1-16.11; E309|        Smite Spectre of Urthona, mock the fiend who drew us down
FZ1-16.12; E309|        From heavens of joy into this Deep. Now rage but rage in vain

FZ1-16.13; E310|        Thus Sang the Demons of the Deep. the Clarions of War blew loud
FZ1-16.14; E310|        The Feast redounds & Crownd with roses & the circling vine
FZ1-16.15; E310|        The Enormous Bride & Bridegroom sat, beside them Urizen
FZ1-16.16; E310|        With faded radiance sighd, forgetful of the flowing wine
FZ1-16.17; E310|        And of Ahania his Pure Bride but She was distant far

FZ1-16.18; E310|        But Los & Enitharmon sat in discontent & scorn
FZ1-16.19; E310|        Craving the more the more enjoying, drawing out sweet bliss
FZ1-16.20; E310|        From all the turning wheels of heaven & the chariots of the Slain

FZ1-16.21; E310|        At distance Far in Night repelld. in direful hunger craving
FZ1-16.22; E310|        Summers & Winters round revolving in the frightful deep.

FZ1-17.1;   E310|        Enion blind & age-bent wept upon the desolate wind   t527

FZ1-17.2;   E310|        Why does the Raven cry aloud and no eye pities her?
FZ1-17.3;   E310|        Why fall the Sparrow & the Robin in the foodless winter?
FZ1-17.4;   E310|        Faint! shivering they sit on leafless bush, or frozen stone   t528

FZ1-17.5;   E310|        Wearied with seeking food across the snowy waste; the little
FZ1-17.6;   E310|        Heart, cold; and the little tongue consum'd, that once in thoughtless joy
FZ1-17.7;   E310|        Gave songs of gratitude to waving corn fields round their nest.  t529

FZ1-17.8;   E310|        Why howl the Lion & the Wolf? why do they roam abroad?   t530
FZ1-17.9;   E310|        Deluded by summers heat they sport in enormous love   t531
FZ1-17.10; E310|        And cast their young out to the hungry wilds & sandy desarts

FZ1-18.1;   E310|        Why is the Sheep given to the knife? the Lamb plays in the Sun
FZ1-18.2;   E310|        He starts! he hears the foot of Man! he says, Take thou my wool
FZ1-18.3;   E310|        But spare my life, but he knows not that winter cometh fast.   t532

FZ1-18.4;   E310|        The Spider sits in his labourd Web, eager watching for the Fly
FZ1-18.5;   E310|        Presently comes a famishd Bird & takes away the Spider
FZ1-18.6;   E310|        His Web is left all desolate, that his little anxious heart
FZ1-18.7;   E310|        So careful wove; & spread it out with sighs and weariness.

FZ1-18.8;   E310|        This was the Lamentation of Enion round the golden Feast
FZ1-18.9;   E310|        Eternity groand and was troubled at the image of Eternal Death
FZ1-18.10; E310|        Without the body of Man an Exudation from his sickning limbs

FZ2-27.20; E318|        But weep in vain O when will you return Vala the Wanderer

FZ2-28.1;   E318|        These were the words of Luvah patient in afflictions
FZ2-28.2;   E318|        Reasoning from the loins in the unreal forms of Ulros night   t573

FZ2-28.3;   E318|        And when Luvah age after age was quite melted with woe
FZ2-28.4;   E318|        The fires of Vala faded like a shadow cold & pale
FZ2-28.5;   E318|        An evanescent shadow. last she fell a heap of Ashes
FZ2-28.6;   E318|        Beneath the furnaces a woful heap in living death
FZ2-28.7;   E318|        Then were the furnaces unscald with spades & pickaxes
FZ2-28.8;   E318|        Roaring let out th fluid, the molten metal ran in channels
FZ2-28.9;   E318|        Cut by the plow of ages held in Urizens strong hand
FZ2-28.10; E318|        In many a valley, for the Bulls of Luvah dragd the Plow

FZ2-28.11; E318|        With trembling horror pale aghast the Children of Man   t574
FZ2-28.12; E318|        Stood on the infinite Earth & saw these visions in the air
FZ2-28.13; E318|        In waters & in Earth beneath they cried to one another
FZ2-28.14; E318|        What are we terrors to one another. Come O brethren wherefore
FZ2-28.15; E318|        Was this wide Earth spread all abroad. not for wild beasts to roam
FZ2-28.16; E318|        But many stood silent & busied in their families
FZ2-28.17; E318|        And many said We see no Visions in the darksom air
FZ2-28.18; E318|        Measure the course of that sulphur orb that lights the darksom day   t575
FZ2-28.19; E318|        Set stations on this breeding Earth & let us buy & sell
FZ2-28.20; E318|        Others arose & schools Erected forming Instruments
FZ2-28.21; E318|        To measure out the course of heaven. Stern Urizen beheld
FZ2-28.22; E318|        In woe his brethren & his Sons in darkning woe lamenting
FZ2-28.23; E318|        Upon the winds in clouds involvd Uttering his voice in thunders
FZ2-28.24; E318|        Commanding all the work with care & power & severity

FZ2-28.25; E318|        Then siezd the Lions of Urizen their work, & heated in the forge
FZ2-28.26; E318|        Roar the bright masses, thund'ring beat the hammers, many a pyramid   t576
FZ2-28.27; E318|        Is form'd & thrown down thund'ring into the deeps of Non Entity
FZ2-28.28; E318|        Heated red hot they hizzing rend their way down many a league
FZ2-28.29; E318|        Till resting. each his [center] finds; suspended there they stand   t577
FZ2-28.30; E318|        Casting their sparkies dire abroad into the dismal deep
FZ2-28.31; E318|        For measurd out in orderd spaces the Sons of Urizen   t578
FZ2-28.32; E318|        With compasses divide the deep; they the strong scales erect

FZ2-29.1;   E319|        That Luvah rent from the faint Heart of the Fallen Man   t579
FZ2-29.2;   E319|        And weigh the massy Cubes, then fix them in their awful stations   t580
FZ2-29.3;   E319|        And all the time in Caverns shut, the golden Looms erected
FZ2-29.4;   E319|        First spun, then wove the Atmospheres, there the Spider & Worm
FZ2-29.5;   E319|        Plied the wingd shuttle piping shrill thro' all the list'ning threads
FZ2-29.6;   E319|        Beneath the Caverns roll the weights of lead & spindles of iron
FZ2-29.7;   E319|        The enormous warp & woof rage direful in the affrighted deep

FZ2-29.8;   E319|        While far into the vast unknown, the strong wing'd Eagles bend
FZ2-29.9;   E319|        Their venturous flight, in Human forms distinct; thro darkness deep
FZ2-29.10; E319|        They bear the woven draperies; on golden hooks they hang abroad
FZ2-29.11; E319|        The universal curtains & spread out from Sun to Sun
FZ2-29.12; E319|        The vehicles of light, they separate the furious particles
FZ2-29.13; E319|        Into mild currents as the water mingles with the wine.

FZ2-29.14; E319|        While thus the Spirits of strongest wing enlighten the dark deep
FZ2-29.15; E319|        The threads are spun & the cords twisted & drawn out; then the weak
FZ2-29.16; E319|        Begin their work; & many a net is netted; many a net

FZ2-30.1;   E319|        Spread & many a Spirit caught, innumerable the nets
FZ2-30.2;   E319|        Innumerable the gins & traps; & many a soothing flute
FZ2-30.3;   E319|        Is form'd & many a corded lyre, outspread over the immense
FZ2-30.4;   E319|        In cruel delight they trap the listeners, & in cruel delight
FZ2-30.5;   E319|        Bind them, condensing the strong energies into little compass   t581
FZ2-30.6;   E319|        Some became seed of every plant that shall be planted; some
FZ2-30.7;   E319|        The bulbous roots, thrown up together into barns & garners

FZ2-30.8;   E319|        Then rose the Builders; First the Architect divine his plan
FZ2-30.9;   E319|        Unfolds, The wondrous scaffold reard all round the infinite
FZ2-30.10; E319|        Quadrangular the building rose the heavens squared by a line.
FZ2-30.11; E319|        Trigon & cubes divide the elements in finite bonds
FZ2-30.12; E319|        Multitudes without number work incessant: the hewn stone
FZ2-30.13; E319|        Is placd in beds of mortar mingled with the ashes of Vala
FZ2-30.14; E319|        Severe the labour, female slaves the mortar trod oppressed

FZ2-30.21; E319|        The Golden Hall of Urizen whose western side glowd bright
FZ2-30.22; E319|        With ever streaming fires beaming from his awful limbs

FZ2-30.23; E319|        His Shadowy Feminine Semblance here reposd on a White Couch   t584
FZ2-30.24; E319|        Or hoverd oer his Starry head & when he smild she brightend
FZ2-30.25; E319|        Like a bright Cloud in harvest. but when Urizen frownd She wept
FZ2-30.26; E319|        In mists over his carved throne & when he turnd his back

FZ2-30.27; E320|        Upon his Golden hall & sought the Labyrinthine porches
FZ2-30.28; E320|        Of his wide heaven Trembling, cold in paling fears she sat
FZ2-30.29; E320|        A Shadow of Despair therefore toward the West Urizen formd
FZ2-30.30; E320|        A recess in the wall for fires to glow upon the pale
FZ2-30.31; E320|        Females limbs in his absence & her Daughters oft upon
FZ2-30.32; E320|        A Golden Altar burnt perfumes with Art Celestial formd
FZ2-30.33; E320|        Foursquare sculpturd & sweetly Engravd to please their shadowy mother   t585
FZ2-30.34; E320|        As[c]ending into her misty garments the blue smoke rolld to revive   t586
FZ2-30.35; E320|        Her cold limbs in the absence of her Lord. Also her sons
FZ2-30.36; E320|        With lives of Victims sacrificed upon an altar of brass
FZ2-30.37; E320|        On the East side. Revivd her Soul with lives of beasts & birds
FZ2-30.38; E320|        Slain on the Altar up ascending into her cloudy bosom
FZ2-30.39; E320|        Of terrible workmanship the Altar labour of ten thousand Slaves
FZ2-30.40; E320|        One thousand Men of wondrous power spent their lives in its formation
FZ2-30.41; E320|        It stood on twelve steps namd after the names of her twelve sons
FZ2-30.42; E320|        And was Erected at the chief entrance of Urizens hall

FZ2-30.43; E320|        When Urizen returnd from his immense labours & travels   t587
FZ2-30.44; E320|        Descending She reposd beside him folding him round
FZ2-30.45; E320|        In her bright skirts. Astonishd & Confounded he beheld
FZ2-30.46; E320|        Her shadowy form now Separate he shudderd & was silent
FZ2-30.47; E320|        Till her caresses & her tears revivd him to life & joy
FZ2-30.48; E320|        Two wills they had two intellects & not as in times of old
FZ2-30.49; E320|        This Urizen percievd & silent brooded in darkning Clouds
FZ2-30.50; E320|        To him his Labour was but Sorrow & his Kingdom was Repentance
FZ2-30.51; E320|        He drave the Male Spirits all away from Ahania
FZ2-30.52; E320|        And she drave all the Females from him away

FZ2-30.53; E320|        Los joyd & Enitharmon laughd, saying Let us go down
FZ2-30.54; E320|        And see this labour & sorrow; They went down to see the woes
FZ2-30.55; E320|        Of Vala & the woes of Luvah, to draw in their delights

FZ2-30.56; E320|        And Vala like a shadow oft appeard to Urizen

FZ2-31.1;   E320|        The King of Light beheld her mourning among the Brick kilns compelld
FZ2-31.2;   E320|        To labour night & day among the fires, her lamenting voice
FZ2-31.3;   E320|        Is heard when silent night returns & the labourers take their rest

FZ2-31.4;   E320|        O Lord wilt thou not look upon our sore afflictions
FZ2-31.5;   E320|        Among these flames incessant labouring, our hard masters laugh
FZ2-31.6;   E320|        At all our sorrow. We are made to turn the wheel for water
FZ2-31.7;   E320|        To carry the heavy basket on our scorched shoulders, to sift
FZ2-31.8;   E320|        The sand & ashes, & to mix the clay with tears & repentance
FZ2-31.9;   E320|        I see not Luvah as of old I only see his feet   t588
FZ2-31.10; E320|        Like pillars of fire travelling thro darkness & non entity

FZ2-31.11; E321|        The times are now returnd upon us, we have given ourselves
FZ2-31.12; E321|        To scorn and now are scorned by the slaves of our enemies
FZ2-31.13; E321|        Our beauty is coverd over with clay & ashes, & our backs
FZ2-31.14; E321|        Furrowd with whips, & our flesh bruised with the heavy basket
FZ2-31.15; E321|        Forgive us O thou piteous one whom we have offended, forgive
FZ2-31.16; E321|        The weak remaining shadow of Vala that returns in sorrow to thee.

FZ2-31.17; E321|        Thus she lamented day & night, compelld to labour & sorrow
FZ2-31.18; E321|        Luvah in vain her lamentations heard; in vain his love
FZ2-31.19; E321|        Brought him in various forms before her still she knew him not

FZ2-32.1;   E321|        Still she despisd him, calling on his name & knowing him not
FZ2-32.2;   E321|        Still hating still professing love, still labouring in the smoke

FZ2-32.3;   E321|        And Los & Enitharmon joyd, they drank in tenfold joy   t589
FZ2-32.4;   E321|        From all the sorrow of Luvah & the labour of Urizen
FZ2-32.5;   E321|        And Enitharmon joyd Plotting to rend the secret cloud
FZ2-32.6;   E321|        To plant divisions in the Soul of Urizen & Ahania

FZ2-32.7;   E321|        But infinitely beautiful the wondrous work arose   t590
FZ2-32.8;   E321|        In sorrow & care. a Golden World whose porches round the heavens   t591
FZ2-32.9;   E321|        And pillard halls & rooms recievd the eternal wandering stars
FZ2-32.10; E321|        A wondrous golden Building; many a window many a door
FZ2-32.11; E321|        And many a division let in & out into the vast unknown
FZ2-32.12; E321|        [Cubed] in [window square] immoveable, within its walls & cielings
FZ2-32.13; E321|        The heavens were closd and spirits mournd their bondage night and day
FZ2-32.14; E321|        And the Divine Vision appeard in Luvahs robes of blood   t593

FZ2-32.15; E321|        Thus was the Mundane shell builded by Urizens strong power

FZ2-32.16; E321|        Sorrowing went the Planters forth to plant, the Sowers to sow   t594
FZ2-32.17; E321|        They dug the channels for the rivers & they pourd abroad

FZ2-33.1;   E321|        The seas & lakes, they reard the mountains & the rocks & hills
FZ2-33.2;   E321|        On broad pavilions, on pillard roofs & porches & high towers
FZ2-33.3;   E321|        In beauteous order, thence arose soft clouds & exhalations
FZ2-33.4;   E321|        Wandering even to the sunny Cubes of light & heat   t595
FZ2-33.5;   E321|        For many a window ornamented with sweet ornaments
FZ2-33.6;   E321|        Lookd out into the World of Tharmas, where in ceaseless torrents   t596
FZ2-33.7;   E321|        His billows roll where monsters wander in the foamy paths

FZ2-33.8;   E321|        On clouds the Sons of Urizen beheld Heaven walled round   t597
FZ2-33.9;   E321|        They weighd & orderd all & Urizen comforted saw   t598
FZ2-33.10; E321|        The wondrous work flow forth like visible out of the invisible
FZ2-33.11; E321|        For the Divine Lamb Even Jesus who is the Divine Vision   t599
FZ2-33.12; E321|        Permitted all lest Man should fall into Eternal Death
FZ2-33.13; E321|        For when Luvah sunk down himself put on the robes of blood
FZ2-33.14; E321|        Lest the state calld Luvah should cease. & the Divine Vision
FZ2-33.15; E321|        Walked in robes of blood till he who slept should awake

FZ2-33.16; E322|        Thus were the stars of heaven created like a golden chain
FZ2-33.17; E322|        To bind the Body of Man to heaven from failing into the Abyss   t600
FZ2-33.18; E322|        Each took his station, & his course began with sorrow & care   t601

FZ2-33.19; E322|        In sevens & tens & fifties, hundreds, thousands, numberd all
FZ2-33.20; E322|        According to their various powers. Subordinate to Urizen
FZ2-33.21; E322|        And to his sons in their degrees & to his beauteous daughters

FZ2-33.22; E322|        Travelling in silent majesty along their orderd ways
FZ2-33.23; E322|        In right lined paths outmeasurd by proportions of number weight  t602
FZ2-33.24; E322|        And measure. mathematic motion wondrous. along the deep
FZ2-33.25; E322|        In fiery pyramid. or Cube. or unornamented pillar   t603
FZ2-33.26; E322|        Of fire far shining. travelling along even to its destind end
FZ2-33.27; E322|        Then falling down. a terrible space recovring in winter dire
FZ2-33.28; E322|        Its wasted strength. It back returns upon a nether course   t604
FZ2-33.29; E322|        Till fired with ardour fresh recruited in its humble season   t605
FZ2-33.30; E322|        It rises up on high all summer till its wearied course
FZ2-33.31; E322|        Turns into autumn. such the period of many worlds
FZ2-33.32; E322|        Others triangular right angled course maintain. others obtuse   t606
FZ2-33.33; E322|        Acute Scalene, in simple paths. but others move   t607

FZ2-33.35; E322|        Paralellograms. triple & quadruple. polygonic
FZ2-33.36; E322|        In their amazing hard subdued course in the vast deep   t608

FZ2-34.1;   E322|        And Los & Enitharmon were drawn down by their desires
FZ2-34.2;   E322|        Descending sweet upon the wind among soft harps & voices   t609
FZ2-34.3;   E322|        To plant divisions in the Soul of Urizen & Ahania   t610
FZ2-34.4;   E322|        To conduct the Voice of Enion to Ahanias midnight pillow

FZ2-34.5;   E322|        Urizen saw & envied & his imagination was filled
FZ2-34.6;   E322|        Repining he contemplated the past in his bright sphere
FZ2-34.7;   E322|        Terrified with his heart & spirit at the visions of futurity
FZ2-34.8;   E322|        That his dread fancy formd before him in the unformd void

FZ2-34.9;   E322|        For Los & Enitharmon walkd forth on the dewy Earth   t611
FZ2-34.10; E322|        Contracting or expanding their all flexible senses
FZ2-34.11; E322|        At will to murmur in the flowers small as the honey bee
FZ2-34.12; E322|        At will to stretch across the heavens & step from star to star
FZ2-34.13; E322|        Or standing on the Earth erect, or on the stormy waves
FZ2-34.14; E322|        Driving the storms before them or delighting in sunny beams
FZ2-34.15; E322|        While round their heads the Elemental Gods kept harmony   t612

FZ2-34.16; E322|        And Los said. Lo the Lilly pale & the rose reddning fierce   t613
FZ2-34.17; E322|        Reproach thee & the beamy gardens sicken at thy beauty
FZ2-34.18; E322|        I grasp thy vest in my strong hand in vain. like water springs
FZ2-34.19; E322|        In the bright sands of Los. evading my embrace. then I alone
FZ2-34.20; E322|        Wander among the virgins of the summer Look they cry

FZ2-34.21; E323|        The poor forsaken Los mockd by the worm the shelly snail
FZ2-34.22; E323|        The Emmet & the beetle hark they laugh & mock at Los

FZ2-34.23; E323|        Enitharmon answerd Secure now from the smitings of thy Power   t614
FZ2-34.24; E323|        Demon of fury If the God enrapturd me infolds
FZ2-34.25; E323|        In clouds of sweet obscurity my beauteous form dissolving
FZ2-34.26; E323|        Howl thou over the body of death tis thine But if among the virgins   t615
FZ2-34.27; E323|        Of summer I have seen thee sleep & turn thy cheek delighted
FZ2-34.28; E323|        Upon the rose or lilly pale. or on a bank where sleep   t616
FZ2-34.29; E323|        The beamy daughters of the light starting they rise they flee
FZ2-34.30; E323|        From thy fierce love for tho I am dissolvd in the bright God
FZ2-34.31; E323|        My spirit still pursues thy false love over rocks & valleys

FZ2-34.32; E323|        Los answerd Therefore fade I thus dissolvd in rapturd trance
FZ2-34.33; E323|        Thou canst repose on clouds of secrecy while oer my limbs
FZ2-34.34; E323|        Cold dews & hoary frost creeps thro I lie on banks of summer
FZ2-34.35; E323|        Among the beauties of the World Cold & repining Los
FZ2-34.36; E323|        Still dies for Enitharmon nor a spirit springs from my dead corse   t617
FZ2-34.37; E323|        Then I am dead till thou revivest me with thy sweet song
FZ2-34.38; E323|        Now taking on Ahanias form & now the form of Enion
FZ2-34.39; E323|        I know thee not as once I knew thee in those blessed fields
FZ2-34.40; E323|        Where memory wishes to repose among the flocks of Tharmas

FZ2-34.41; E323|        Enitharmon answerd Wherefore didst thou throw thine arms around
FZ2-34.42; E323|        Ahanias Image I decievd thee & will still decieve
FZ2-34.43; E323|        Urizen saw thy sin & hid his beams in darkning Clouds
FZ2-34.44; E323|        I still keep watch altho I tremble & wither across the heavens
FZ2-34.45; E323|        In strong vibrations of fierce jealousy for thou art mine
FZ2-34.46; E323|        Created for my will my slave tho strong tho I am weak
FZ2-34.47; E323|        Farewell the God calls me away I depart in my sweet bliss

FZ2-34.48; E323|        She fled vanishing on the wind And left a dead cold corse
FZ2-34.49; E323|        In Los's arms howlings began over the body of death   t618
FZ2-34.50; E323|        Los spoke. Thy God in vain shall call thee if by my strong power
FZ2-34.51; E323|        I can infuse my dear revenge into his glowing breast
FZ2-34.52; E323|        Then jealousy shall shadow all his mountains & Ahania
FZ2-34.53; E323|        Curse thee thou plague of woful Los & seek revenge on thee

FZ2-34.54; E323|        So saying in deep sobs he languishd till dead he also fell
FZ2-34.55; E323|        Night passd & Enitharmon eer the dawn returnd in bliss
FZ2-34.56; E323|        She sang Oer Los reviving him to Life his groans were terrible   t619
FZ2-34.57; E323|        But thus she sang. I sieze the sphery harp I strike the strings

FZ2-34.58; E323|        At the first Sound the Golden sun arises from the Deep
FZ2-34.59; E323|        And sakes his awful hair
FZ2-34.60; E323|        The Eccho wakes the moon to unbind her silver locks
FZ2-34.61; E323|        The golden sun bears on my song
FZ2-34.62; E323|        And nine bright spheres of harmony rise round the fiery King

FZ2-34.63; E324|        The joy of woman is the Death of her most best beloved
FZ2-34.64; E324|        Who dies for Love of her
FZ2-34.65; E324|        In torments of fierce jealousy & pangs of adoration.
FZ2-34.66; E324|        The Lovers night bears on my song
FZ2-34.67; E324|        And the nine Spheres rejoice beneath my powerful controll

FZ2-34.68; E324|        They sing unceasing to the notes of my immortal hand
FZ2-34.69; E324|        The solemn silent moon
FZ2-34.70; E324|        Reverberates the living harmony upon my limbs
FZ2-34.71; E324|        The birds & beasts rejoice & play
FZ2-34.72; E324|        And every one seeks for his mate to prove his inmost joy

FZ2-34.73; E324|        Furious & terrible they sport & rend the nether deeps
FZ2-34.74; E324|        The deep lifts up his rugged head
FZ2-34.75; E324|        And lost in infinite hum[m]ing wings vanishes with a cry
FZ2-34.76; E324|        The fading cry is ever dying
FZ2-34.77; E324|        The living voice is ever living in its inmost joy

FZ2-34.78; E324|        Arise you little glancing wings & sing your infant joy
FZ2-34.79; E324|        Arise & drink your bliss
FZ2-34.80; E324|        For every thing that lives is holy for the source of life
FZ2-34.81; E324|        Descends to be a weeping babe
FZ2-34.82; E324|        For the Earthworm renews the moisture of the sandy plain

FZ2-34.83; E324|        Now my left hand I stretch to earth beneath
FZ2-34.84; E324|        And strike the terrible string
FZ2-34.85; E324|        I wake sweet joy in dens of sorrow & I plant a smile
FZ2-34.86; E324|        In forests of affliction
FZ2-34.87; E324|        And wake the bubbling springs of life in regions of dark death

FZ2-34.88; E324|        O I am weary lay thine hand upon me or I faint
FZ2-34.89; E324|        I faint beneath these beams of thine
FZ2-34.90; E324|        For thou hast touchd my five senses & they answerd thee
FZ2-34.91; E324|        Now I am nothing & I sink
FZ2-34.92; E324|        And on the bed of silence sleep till thou awakest me

FZ2-34.93; E324|        Thus sang the Lovely one in Rapturous delusive trance
FZ2-34.94; E324|        Los heard reviving he siezd her in his arms delusive hopes   t620
FZ2-34.95; E324|        Kindling She led him int Shadows & thence fled outstretchd
FZ2-34.96; E324|        Upon the immense like a bright rainbow weeping & smiling & fading

FZ2-34.97; E324|        Thus livd Los driving Enion far into the deathful infinite   t621
FZ2-34.98; E324|        That he may also draw Ahania's spirit into her Vortex
FZ2-34.99; E324|        Ah happy blindness Enion sees not the terrors of the uncertain   t622
FZ2-34.100; E324|        Thus Enion wails from the dark deep, the golden heavens tremble  t623
FZ2-35.1;   E324|        I am made to sow the thistle for wheat; the nettle for a nourishing dainty

FZ2-35.2;   E325|        I have planted a false oath in the earth, it has brought forth a poison tree
FZ2-35.3;   E325|        I have chosen the serpent for a councellor & the dog
FZ2-35.4;   E325|        For a schoolmaster to my children
FZ2-35.5;   E325|        I have blotted out from light & living the dove & nightingale
FZ2-35.6;   E325|        And I have caused the earth worm to beg from door to door
FZ2-35.7;   E325|        I have taught the thief a secret path into the house of the just
FZ2-35.8;   E325|        I have taught pale artifice to spread his nets upon the morning
FZ2-35.9;   E325|        My heavens are brass my earth is iron my moon a clod of clay
FZ2-35.10; E325|        My sun a pestilence burning at noon & a vapour of death in night

FZ2-35.11; E325|        What is the price of Experience do men buy it for a song
FZ2-35.12; E325|        Or wisdom for a dance in the street? No it is bought with the price
FZ2-35.13; E325|        Of all that a man hath his house his wife his children
FZ2-35.14; E325|        Wisdom is sold in the desolate market where none come to buy
FZ2-35.15; E325|        And in the witherd field where the farmer plows for bread in vain

FZ2-35.16; E325|        It is an easy thing to triumph in the summers sun
FZ2-35.17; E325|        And in the vintage & to sing on the waggon loaded with corn
FZ2-35.18; E325|        It is an easy thing to talk of patience to the afflicted
FZ2-35.19; E325|        To speak the laws of prudence to the houseless wanderer

FZ2-36.1;   E325|        To listen to the hungry ravens cry in wintry season
FZ2-36.2;   E325|        When the red blood is filld with wine & with the marrow of lambs

FZ2-36.3;   E325|        It is an easy thing to laugh at wrathful elements
FZ2-36.4;   E325|        To hear the dog howl at the wintry door, the ox in the slaughter house moan
FZ2-36.5;   E325|        To see a god on every wind & a blessing on every blast
FZ2-36.6;   E325|        To hear sounds of love in the thunder storm that destroys our enemies house
FZ2-36.7;   E325|        To rejoice in the blight that covers his field, & the sickness that cuts off his children
FZ2-36.8;   E325|        While our olive & vine sing & laugh round our door & our children bring fruits & flowers

FZ2-36.9;   E325|        Then the groan & the dolor are quite forgotten & the slave grinding at the mill
FZ2-36.10; E325|        And the captive in chains & the poor in the prison, & the soldier in the field
FZ2-36.11; E325|        When the shatterd bone hath laid him groaning among the happier dead

FZ2-36.12; E325|        It is an easy thing to rejoice in the tents of prosperity
FZ2-36.13; E325|        Thus could I sing & thus rejoice, but it is not so with me!

FZ2-36.14; E325|        Ahania heard the Lamentation & a swift Vibration   t624
FZ2-36.15; E325|        Spread thro her Golden frame. She rose up eer the dawn of day

FZ2-36.16; E326|        When Urizen slept on his couch. drawn thro unbounded space
FZ2-36.17; E326|        Onto the margin of Non Entity the bright Female came
FZ2-36.18; E326|        There she beheld the Spectrous form of Enion in the Void   t625
FZ2-36.19; E326|        And never from that moment could she rest upon her pillow

FZ2-36; E326|        End of the Second Night

FZ3-heading; E326|        PAGE 37 VALA

FZ3-heading; E326|        Night the Third   t626

FZ3-37.1;   E326|        Now sat the King of Light on high upon his starry throne
FZ3-37.2;   E326|        And bright Ahania bow'd herself before his splendid feet

FZ3-37.3;   E326|        O Urizen look on Me. like a mournful stream   t627
FZ3-37.4;   E326|        I Embrace round thy knees & wet My bright hair with my tears:   t628
FZ3-37.5;   E326|        Why sighs my Lord! are not the morning stars thy obedient Sons
FZ3-37.6;   E326|        Do they not bow their bright heads at thy voice? at thy command
FZ3-37.7;   E326|        Do they not fly into their stations & return their light to thee
FZ3-37.8;   E326|        The immortal Atmospheres are thine, there thou art seen in glory
FZ3-37.9;   E326|        Surrounded by the ever changing Daughters of the Light
FZ3-37.10; E326|        Why wilt thou look upon futurity darkning present joy   t629

FZ3-37.11; E326|        She ceas'd the Prince his light obscurd & the splendors of his crown

FZ3-38.1;   E326|        Infolded in thick clouds, from whence his mighty voice burst forth

FZ3-38.2;   E326|        O bright [Ahania] a Boy is born of the dark Ocean   t630
FZ3-38.3;   E326|        Whom Urizen doth serve, with Light replenishing his darkness
FZ3-38.4;   E326|        I am set here a King of trouble commanded here to serve
FZ3-38.5;   E326|        And do my ministry to those who eat of my wide table
FZ3-38.6;   E326|        All this is mine yet I must serve & that Prophetic boy
FZ3-38.7;   E326|        Must grow up to command his Prince but hear my determind Decree   t631
FZ3-38.8;   E326|        Vala shall become a Worm in Enitharmons Womb   t632
FZ3-38.9;   E326|        Laying her seed upon the fibres soon to issue forth
FZ3-38.10; E326|        And Luvah in the loins of Los a dark & furious death
FZ3-38.11; E326|        Alas for me! what will become of me at that dread time?

FZ3-38.12; E326|        Ahania bow'd her head & wept seven days before the King
FZ3-38.13; E326|        And on the eighth day when his clouds unfolded from his throne
FZ3-38.14; E326|        She rais'd her bright head sweet perfumd & thus with heavenly voice

FZ3-38.15; E326|        O Prince the Eternal One hath set thee leader of his hosts   t633

FZ3-39.1;   E326|        Leave all futurity to him Resume thy fields of Light   t634
FZ3-39.2;   E326|        Why didst thou listen to the voice of Luvah that dread morn
FZ3-39.3;   E326|        To give the immortal steeds of light to his deceitful hands
FZ3-39.4;   E326|        No longer now obedient to thy will thou art compell'd
FZ3-39.5;   E326|        To forge the curbs of iron & brass to build the iron mangers   t635
FZ3-39.6;   E326|        To feed them with intoxication from the wine presses of Luvah

FZ3-39.7;   E327|        Till the Divine Vision & Fruition is quite obliterated
FZ3-39.8;   E327|        They call thy lions to the fields of blood, they rowze thy tygers
FZ3-39.9;   E327|        Out of the halls of justice, till these dens thy wisdom framd
FZ3-39.10; E327|        Golden & beautiful but O how unlike those sweet fields of bliss
FZ3-39.11; E327|        Where liberty was justice & eternal science was mercy
FZ3-3912; E327|        Then O my dear lord listen to Ahania, listen to the vision
FZ3-39.13; E327|        The vision of Ahania in the slumbers of Urizen
FZ3-39.14; E327|        When Urizen slept in the porch & the Ancient Man was smitten   t636

FZ3-39.15; E327|        The Darkning Man walkd on the steps of fire before his halls   t637
FZ3-39.16; E327|        And Vala walkd with him in dreams of soft deluding slumber
FZ3-39.17; E327|        He looked up & saw thee Prince of Light thy splendor faded   t638
FZ3-39.18; E327|        But saw not Los nor Enitharmon for Luvah hid them in shadow   t639

FZ3-40.1;   E327|        In a soft cloud Outstretch'd across, & Luvah dwelt in the cloud  t640

FZ3-40.2;   E327|        Then Man ascended mourning into the splendors of his palace   t641
FZ3-40.3;   E327|        Above him rose a Shadow from his wearied intellect   t642
FZ3-40.4;   E327|        Of living gold, pure, perfect, holy; in white linen pure he hover'd
FZ3-40.5;   E327|        A sweet entrancing self delusion, a watry vision of Man
FZ3-40.6;   E327|        Soft exulting in existence all the Man absorbing

FZ3-40.7;   E327|        Man fell upon his face prostrate before the watry shadow
FZ3-40.8;   E327|        Saying O Lord whence is this change thou knowest I am nothing
FZ3-40.9;   E327|        And Vala trembled & coverd her face, & her locks. were spread on the pavement

FZ3-40.10; E327|        I heard astonishd at the Vision & my heart trembled within me   t643
FZ3-40.11; E327|        I heard the voice of the Slumberous Man & thus he spoke   t644
FZ3-40.12; E327|        Idolatrous to his own Shadow words of Eternity uttering   t645

FZ3-40.13; E327|        O I am nothing when I enter into judgment with thee
FZ3-40.14; E327|        If thou withdraw thy breath I die & vanish into Hades
FZ3-40.15; E327|        If thou dost lay thine hand upon me behold I am silent
FZ3-40.16; E327|        If thou withhold thine hand I perish like a fallen leaf
FZ3-40.17; E327|        O I am nothing & to nothing must return again
FZ3-40.18; E327|        If thou withdraw thy breath, behold I am oblivion

FZ3-40.19; E327|        He ceasd: the shadowy voice was silent; but the cloud hoverd over their heads

ED; E327|        [--For the late insertion of the name "Albion" on this page, see textual notes.--]
FZ3-41.1;   E327|        In olden wreathes, the sorrow of Man & the balmy drops fell down
FZ3-41.2;   E327|        And Lo that Son of Man, that shadowy Spirit of the Fallen One   t646
FZ3-41.3;   E327|        Luvah, descended from the cloud; In terror Albion rose-
FZ3-41.4;   E327|        Indignant rose the Awful Man & turnd his back on Vala   t647

FZ3-41.5;   E327|        Why roll thy clouds in sick'ning mists. I can no longer hide   t648
FZ3-41.6;   E327|        The dismal vision of mine Eyes, O love & life & light!   t649
FZ3-41.7;   E327|        Prophetic dreads urge me to speak. futurity is before me

FZ3-41.8;   E328|        Like a dark lamp. Eternal death haunts all my expectation
FZ3-41.9;   E328|        Rent from Eternal Brotherhood we die & are no more

FZ3-41.10; E328|        I heard the Voice of Albion starting from his sleep   t650

FZ3-41.11; E328|        "Whence is this voice crying Enion that soundeth in my ears
FZ3-41.12; E328|        O cruel pity! O dark deceit! can Love seek for dominion   t651

FZ3-41.13; E328|        And Luvah strove to gain dominion over the mighty Albion   t652
FZ3-41.14; E328|        They strove together above the Body where Vala was inclos'd
FZ3-41.15; E328|        And the dark Body of Albion left prostrate upon the crystal pavement   t653
FZ3-41.16; E328|        Coverd with boils from head to foot. the terrible smitings of Luvah

FZ3-41.17; E328|        Then frownd the Fallen Man & put forth Luvah from his presence   t654
FZ3-41.18; E328|        (I heard him: frown not Urizen: but listen to my Vision)

FZ3-42.1;   E328|        Saying, Go & die the Death of Man for Vala the sweet wanderer
FZ3-42.2;   E328|        I will turn the volutions of your Ears outward; & bend your Nostrils
FZ3-42.3;   E328|        Downward; & your fluxile Eyes englob'd, roll round in fear
FZ3-42.4;   E328|        Your withring Lips & Tongue shrink up into a narrow circle
FZ3-42.5;   E328|        Till into narrow forms you creep. Go take your fiery way
FZ3-42.6;   E328|        And learn what 'tis to absorb the Man you Spirits of Pity & Love

FZ3-42.7;   E328|        O Urizen why art thou pale at the visions of Ahania   t656
FZ3-42.8;   E328|        Listen to her who loves thee lest we also are driven away.

FZ3-42.9;   E328|        They heard the Voice & fled swift as the winters setting sun   t657
FZ3-42.10; E328|        And now the Human Blood foamd high, I saw that Luvah & Vala   t658
FZ3-42.11; E328|        Went down the Human Heart where Paradise & its joys abounded   t659
FZ3-42.12; E328|        In jealous fears in fury & rage, & flames roll'd round their fervid feet
FZ3-42.13; E328|        And the vast form of Nature like a Serpent play'd before them
FZ3-42.14; E328|        And as they went in folding fires & thunders of the deep
FZ3-42.15; E328|        Vala shrunk in like the dark sea that leaves its slimy banks
FZ3-42.16; E328|        And from her bosom Luvah fell far as the east & west
FZ3-42.17; E328|        And the vast form of Nature like a Serpent roll'd between.   t660

FZ3-42.18; E328|        She ended. for [from] his wrathful throne burst forth the black hail storm   t661

FZ3-42.19; E328|        Am I not God said Urizen. Who is Equal to me
FZ3-42.20; E328|        Do I not stretch the heavens abroad or fold them up like a garment

FZ3-42.21; E328|        He spoke mustering his heavy clouds around him black opake

FZ3-43.1;   E328|        Then thunders rolld around & lightnings darted to & fro
FZ3-43.2;   E328|        His visage changd to darkness & his strong right hand came forth   t662
FZ3-43.3;   E328|        To cast Ahania to the Earth be siezd her by the hair
FZ3-43.4;   E328|        And threw her from the steps of ice that froze around his throne

FZ3-43.5;   E328|        Saying Art thou also become like Vala. thus I cast thee out
FZ3-43.6;   E328|        Shall the feminine indolent bliss. the indulgent self of weariness

FZ3-43.7;   E329|        The passive idle sleep the enormous night & darkness of Death
FZ3-43.8;   E329|        Set herself up to give her laws to the active masculine virtue
FZ3-43.9;   E329|        Thou little diminutive portion that darst be a counterpart
FZ3-43.10; E329|        Thy passivity thy laws of obedience & insincerity
FZ3-43.11; E329|        Are my abhorrence. Wherefore hast thou taken that fair form
FZ3-43.12; E329|        Whence is this power given to thee! once thou wast in my breast
FZ3-43.13; E329|        A sluggish current of dim waters. on whose verdant margin
FZ3-43.14; E329|        A cavern shaggd with horrid shades. dark cool & deadly. where
FZ3-43.15; E329|        I laid my head in the hot noon after the broken clods
FZ3-43.16; E329|        Had wearied me. there I lad my plow & there my horses fed
FZ3-43.17; E329|        And thou hast risen with thy moist locks into a watry image
FZ3-43.18; E329|        Reflecting all my indolence my weakness & my death
FZ3-43.19; E329|        To weigh me down beneath the grave into non Entity
FZ3-43.20; E329|        Where Luvah strives scorned by Vala age after age wandering
FZ3-43.21; E329|        Shrinking & shrinking from her Lord & calling him the Tempter
FZ3-43.22; E329|        And art thou also become like Vala thus I cast thee out.

FZ3-43.23; E329|        So loud in thunders spoke the King folded in dark despair
FZ3-43.24; E329|        And threw Ahania from his bosom obdurate She fell like lightning
FZ3-43.25; E329|        Then fled the sons of Urizen from his thunderous throne petrific
FZ3-43.26; E329|        They fled to East & West & left the North & South of Heaven
FZ3-43.27; E329|        A crash ran thro the immense The bounds of Destiny were broken
FZ3-43.28; E329|        The bounds of Destiny crashd direful & the swelling Sea
FZ3-43.29; E329|        Burst from its bonds in whirlpools fierce roaring with Human voice
FZ3-43.30; E329|        Triumphing even to the Stars at bright Ahanias fall

FZ3-43.31; E329|        Down from the dismal North the Prince in thunders & thick clouds

FZ3-44.1;   E329|        As when the thunderbolt down falleth on the appointed place
FZ3-44.2;   E329|        Fell down down rushing ruining thundering shuddering   t663
FZ3-44.3;   E329|        Into the Caverns of the Grave & places of Human Seed
FZ3-44.4;   E329|        Where the impressions of Despair & Hope enroot forever
FZ3-44.5;   E329|        A world of Darkness. Ahania fell far into Non Entity

FZ3-44.6;   E329|        She Continued falling. Loud the Crash continud loud & Hoarse
FZ3-44.7;   E329|        From the Crash roared a flame of blue sulphureous fire from the flame   t664
FZ3-44.8;   E329|        A dolorous groan that struck with dumbness all confusion
FZ3-44.9;   E329|        Swallowing up the horrible din in agony on agony
FZ3-44.10; E329|        Thro the Confusion like a crack across from immense to immense
FZ3-44.11; E329|        Loud strong a universal groan of death louder
FZ3-44.12; E329|        Than all the wracking elements deafend & rended worse
FZ3-44.13; E329|        Than Urizen & all his hosts in curst despair down rushing
FZ3-44.14; E329|        But from the Dolorous Groan on like a shadow of smoke appeard
FZ3-44.15; E329|        And human bones rattling together in the smoke & stamping
FZ3-44.16; E329|        The nether Abyss & gnasshing in fierce despair. panting in sobs
FZ3-44.17; E329|        Thick short incessant bursting sobbing. deep despairing stamping struggling

FZ3-44.18; E330|        Struggling to utter the voice of Man struggling to take the features of Man. Struggling   t665
FZ3-44.19; E330|        To take the limbs of Man at length emerging from the smoke
FZ3-44.20; E330|        Of Urizen dashed in pieces from his precipitant fall
FZ3-44.21; E330|        Tharmas reard up his hands & stood on the affrighted Ocean
FZ3-44.22; E330|        The dead reard up his Voice & stood on the resounding shore

FZ3-44.23; E330|        Crying. Fury in my limbs. destruction in my bones & marrow
FZ3-44.24; E330|        My skull riven into filaments. my eyes into sea jellies
FZ3-44.25; E330|        Floating upon the tide wander bubbling & bubbling
FZ3-44.26; E330|        Uttering my lamentations & begetting little monsters
FZ3-44.27; E330|        Who sit mocking upon the little pebbles of the tide
FZ3-44.28; E330|        In all my rivers & on dried shells that the fish

FZ3-45.1;   E330|        Have quite forsaken. O fool fool to lose my sweetest bliss
FZ3-45.2;   E330|        Where art thou Enion ah too near to cunning too far off
FZ3-45.3;   E330|        And yet too near. Dashd down I send thee into distant darkness
FZ3-45.4;   E330|        Far as my strength can hurl thee wander there & laugh & play
FZ3-45.5;   E330|        Among the frozen arrows they will tear thy tender flesh
FZ3-45.6;   E330|        Fall off afar from Tharmas come not too near my strong fury
FZ3-45.7;   E330|        Scream & fall off & laugh at Tharmas lovely summer beauty
FZ3-45.8;   E330|        Till winter rends thee into Shivers as thou hast rended me

FZ3-45.9;   E330|        So Tharmas bellowd oer the ocean thundring sobbing bursting
FZ3-45.10; E330|        The bounds of Destiny were broken & hatred now began
FZ3-45.11; E330|        Instead of love to Enion. Enion blind & age bent
FZ3-45.12; E330|        Plungd into the cold billows living a life in midst of waters
FZ3-45.13; E330|        In terrors she witherd away to Entuthon Benithon
FZ3-45.14; E330|        A world of deep darkness where all things in horrors are rooted

FZ3-45.15; E330|        These are the words of Enion heard from the cold waves of despair

FZ3-45.16; E330|        O Tharmas I had lost thee. & when I hoped I had found thee
FZ3-45.17; E330|        O Tharmas do not thou destroy me quite but let
FZ3-45.18; E330|        A little shadow. but a little showery form of Enion
FZ3-45.19; E330|        Be near thee loved Terror. let me still remain & then do thou
FZ3-45.20; E330|        Thy righteous doom upon me. only let me hear thy voice
FZ3-45.21; E330|        Driven by thy rage I wander like a cloud into the deep
FZ3-45.22; E330|        Where never yet Existence came, there losing all my life
FZ3-45.23; E330|        I back return weaker & weaker, consume me not away
FZ3-45.24; E330|        In thy great wrath. tho I have sinned. tho I have rebelld
FZ3-45.25; E330|        Make me not like the things forgotten as they had not been
FZ3-45.26; E330|        Make not the thing that loveth thee. a tear wiped away

FZ3-45.27; E330|        Tharmas replied riding on storms his voice of Thunder rolld   t666

FZ3-45.28; E330|        Image of grief thy fading lineaments make my eyelids fail
FZ3-45.29; E330|        What have I done! both rage & mercy are alike to me
FZ3-45.30; E330|        Looking upon thee Image of faint waters. I recoil

FZ3-45.31; E331|        From my fierce rage into thy semblance. Enion return
FZ3-45.32; E331|        Why does thy piteous face Evanish like a rainy cloud

FZ3-46.1;   E331|        Melting. a shower of falling tears. nothing but tears! Enion:
FZ3-46.2;   E331|        Substanceless. voiceless, weeping. vanishd. nothing but tears! Enion
FZ3-46.3;   E331|        Art thou for ever vanishd from the watry eyes of Tharmas
FZ3-46.4;   E331|        Rage Rage shall never from my bosom. winds & waters of woe
FZ3-46.5;   E331|        Consuming all to the end consuming Love and Hope are ended   t667

FZ3-46.6;   E331|        For now no more remaind of Enion in the dismal air
FZ3-46.7;   E331|        Only a voice eternal wailing in the Elements

FZ3-46.8;   E331|        Where Enion, blind & age bent wanderd Ahania wanders now
FZ3-46.9;   E331|        She wanders in Eternal fear of falling into the indefinite
FZ3-46.10; E331|        For her bright eyes behold the Abyss. sometimes a little sleep
FZ3-46.11; E331|        Weighs down her eyelids then she falls then starting wakes in fears
FZ3-46.12; E331|        Sleepless to wander round repelld on the margin of Non Entity
FZ3-46; E331|        The End of the Third Night

FZ4-headers; E331|        Night The Fourth

FZ4-47.1;   E331|        But Tharmas rode on the dark Abyss. the voice of Tharmas rolld
FZ4-47.2;   E331|        Over the heaving deluge. he saw Los & Enitharmon Emerge
FZ4-47.3;   E331|        In strength & brightness from the Abyss his bowels yearnd over them
FZ4-47.4;   E331|        They rose in strength above the heaving deluge. in mighty scorn
FZ4-47.5;   E331|        Red as the Sun in the hot morning of the bloody day
FZ4-47.6;   E331|        Tharmas beheld them his bowels yearnd over them

FZ4-47.7;   E331|        And he said Wherefore do I feel such love & pity   t668
FZ4-47.8;   E331|        Ah Enion Ah Enion Ah lovely lovely Enion
FZ4-47.9;   E331|        How is this All my hope is gone for ever fled   t669
FZ4-47.10; E331|        Like a famishd Eagle Eyeless raging in the vast expanse
FZ4-47.11; E331|        Incessant tears are now my food. incessant rage & tears
FZ4-47.12; E331|        Deathless for ever now I wander seeking oblivion
FZ4-47.13; E331|        In torrents of despair in vain. for if I plunge beneath
FZ4-47.14; E331|        Stifling I live. If dashd in pieces from a rocky height
FZ4-47.15; E331|        I reunite in endless torment. would I had never risen
FZ4-47.16; E331|        From deaths cold sleep beneath the bottom of the raging Ocean   t670
FZ4-47.17; E331|        And cannot those who once have lovd. ever forget their Love?
FZ4-47.18; E331|        Are love & rage the same passion? they are the same in me
FZ4-47.19; E331|        Are those who love. like those who died. risen again from death
FZ4-47.20; E331|        Immortal. in immortal torment. never to be deliverd
FZ4-47.21; E331|        Is it not possible that one risen again from Death
FZ4-47.22; E331|        Can die! When dark despair comes over [me] can I not   t671
FZ4-47.23; E331|        Flow down into the sea & slumber in oblivion. Ah Enion

FZ4-48.1;   E332|        Deformd I see these lineaments of ungratified Desire
FZ4-48.2;   E332|        The all powerful curse of an honest man be upon Urizen & Luvah
FZ4-48.3;   E332|        But thou My Son Glorious in brightness comforter of Tharmas
FZ4-48.4;   E332|        Go forth Rebuild this Universe beneath my indignant power
FZ4-48.5;   E332|        A Universe of Death & Decay. Let Enitharmons hands
FZ4-48.6;   E332|        Weave soft delusive forms of Man above my watry world
FZ4-48.7;   E332|        Renew these ruind souls of Men thro Earth Sea Air & Fire
FZ4-48.8;   E332|        To waste in endless corruption. renew thou I will destroy
FZ4-48.9;   E332|        Perhaps Enion may resume some little semblance
FZ4-48.10; E332|        To ease my pangs of heart & to restore some peace to Tharmas

FZ4-48.11; E332|        Los answerd in his furious pride sparks issuing from his hair
FZ4-48.12; E332|        Hitherto shalt thou come. no further. here thy proud waves cease
FZ4-48.13; E332|        We have drunk up the Eternal Man by our unbounded power   t673
FZ4-48.14; E332|        Beware lest we also drink up thee rough demon of the waters
FZ4-48.15; E332|        Our God is Urizen the King. King of the Heavenly hosts
FZ4-48.16; E332|        We have no other God but he thou father of worms & clay
FZ4-48.17; E332|        And he is falln into the Deep rough Demon of the waters
FZ4-48.18; E332|        And Los remains God over all. weak father of worms & clay
FZ4-48.19; E332|        I know I was Urthona keeper of the gates of heaven
FZ4-48.20; E332|        But now I am all powerful Los & Urthona is but my shadow

FZ4-48.21; E332|        Doubting stood Tharmas in the solemn darkness. his dim Eyes   t674
FZ4-48.22; E332|        Swam in red tears. he reard his waves above the head of Los
FZ4-48.23; E332|        In wrath. but pitying back withdrew with many a sigh
FZ4-48.24; E332|        Now he resolvd to destroy Los & now his tears flowd down

FZ4-48.25; E332|        In scorn stood Los red sparks of blighting from his furious head
FZ4-48.26; E332|        Flew over the waves of Tharmas. pitying Tharmas stayd his Waves

FZ4-48.27; E332|        For Enitharmon shriekd amain crying O my sweet world
FZ4-48.28; E332|        Built by the Architect divine whose love to Los & Enitharmon
FZ4-48.29; E332|        Thou rash abhorred Demon in thy fury hast oerthrown

FZ4-49.1;   E332|        What Sovereign Architect said Tharmas dare my will controll
FZ4-49.2;   E332|        For if I will I urge these waters. If I will they sleep
FZ4-49.3;   E332|        In peace beneath my awful frown my will shall be my Law

FZ4-49.4;   E332|        So Saying in a Wave he rap'd bright Enitharmon far
FZ4-49.5;   E332|        Apart from Los. but coverd her with softest brooding care
FZ4-49.6;   E332|        On a broad wave in the warm west. balming her bleeding wound

FZ4-49.7;   E332|        O how Los howld at the rending asunder all the fibres rent
FZ4-49.8;   E332|        Where Enitharmon joind to his left side in griding pain   t675
FZ4-49.9;   E332|        He falling on the rocks bellowd his Dolor. till the blood
FZ4-49.10; E332|        Stanch'd, then in ululation waild his woes upon the wind

FZ4-49.11; E333|        And Tharmas calld to the Dark Spectre who upon the Shores
FZ4-49.12; E333|        With dislocated Limbs had falln. The Spectre rose in pain
FZ4-49.13; E333|        A Shadow blue obscure & dismal. like a statue of lead
FZ4-49.14; E333|        Bent by its fall from a high tower the dolorous shadow rose

FZ4-49.15; E333|        Go forth said Tharmas works of joy are thine obey & live
FZ4-49.16; E333|        So shall the spungy marrow issuing from thy splinterd bones
FZ4-49.17; E333|        Bonify. & thou shalt have rest when this thy labour is done
FZ4-49.18; E333|        Go forth bear Enitharmon back to the Eternal Prophet
FZ4-49.19; E333|        Build her a bower in the midst of all my dashing waves
FZ4-49.20; E333|        Make first a resting place for Los & Enitharmon. then
FZ4-49.21; E333|        Thou shalt have rest. If thou refusest dashd abroad on all
FZ4-49.22; E333|        My waves. thy limbs shall separate in stench & rotting & thou
FZ4-49.23; E333|        Become a prey to all my demons of despair & hope

FZ4-49.24; E333|        The Spectre of Urthona seeing Enitharmon writhd   t676
FZ4-49.25; E333|        His cloudy form in jealous fear & muttering thunders hoarse
FZ4-49.26; E333|        And casting round thick glooms. thus utterd his fierce pangs of heart

FZ4-49.27; E333|        Tharmas I know thee. how are we alterd our beauty decayd
FZ4-49.28; E333|        But still I know thee tho in this horrible ruin whelmd
FZ4-49.29; E333|        Thou once the mildest son of heaven art now become a Rage
FZ4-49.30; E333|        A terror to all living things. think not that I am ignorant
FZ4-49.31; E333|        That thou art risen from the dead or that my power forgot

FZ4-50.1;   E333|        I slumber here in weak repose. I well remember the Day
FZ4-50.2;   E333|        The day of terror & abhorrence   t677
FZ4-50.3;   E333|        When fleeing from the battle thou fleeting like the raven
FZ4-50.4;   E333|        Of dawn outstretching an expanse where neer expanse had been
FZ4-50.5;   E333|        Drewst all the Sons of Beulah into thy dread vortex following   t678
FZ4-50.6;   E333|        Thy Eddying spirit down the hills of Beulah. All my sons
FZ4-50.7;   E333|        Stood round me at the anvil where new heated the wedge
FZ4-50.8;   E333|        Of iron glowd furious prepard for spades & mattocks
FZ4-50.9;   E333|        Hearing the symphonies of war loud sounding All my sons
FZ4-50.10; E333|        Fled from my side then pangs smote me unknown before. I saw
FZ4-50.11; E333|        My loins begin to break forth into veiny pipes & writhe   t679
FZ4-50.12; E333|        Before me in the wind englobing trembling with strong vibrations
FZ4-50.13; E333|        The bloody mass began to animate. I bending over
FZ4-50.14; E333|        Wept bitter tears incessant. Still beholding how the piteous form
FZ4-50.15; E333|        Dividing & dividing from my loins a weak & piteous
FZ4-50.16; E333|        Soft cloud of snow a female pale & weak I soft embracd
FZ4-50.17; E333|        My counter part & calld it Love I named her Enitharmon
FZ4-50.18; E333|        But found myself & her together issuing down the tide
FZ4-50.19; E333|        Which now our rivers were become delving thro caverns huge
FZ4-50.20; E333|        Of goary blood strugg[l]ing to be deliverd from our bonds
FZ4-50.21; E333|        She strove in vain not so Urthona strove for breaking forth,
FZ4-50.22; E333|        A shadow blue obscure & dismal from the breathing Nostrils

FZ4-50.23; E334|        Of Enion I issued into the air divided from Enitharmon

FZ4-50.26; E334|        From Vultures of the deep then wherefore shouldst thou rage
FZ4-50.27; E334|        Against me who thee guarded in the night of death from harm

FZ4-50.28; E334|        Tharmas replied. Art thou Urthona My friend my old companion,
FZ4-50.29; E334|        With whom I livd in happiness before that deadly night
FZ4-50.30; E334|        When Urizen gave the horses of Light into the hands of Luvah
FZ4-50.31; E334|        Thou knowest not what Tharmas knows. O I could tell thee tales
FZ4-50.32; E334|        That would enrage thee as it has Enraged me even
FZ4-50.33; E334|        From Death in wrath & fury. But now come bear back
FZ4-50.34; E334|        Thy loved Enitharmon. For thou hast her here before thine Eyes

FZ4-51.5;   E334|        Bind him, take Enitharmon for thy sweet reward while I
FZ4-51.6;   E334|        In vain am driven on false hope. hope sister of despair

FZ4-51.7;   E334|        Groaning the terror rose & drave his solid rocks before   t681
FZ4-51.8;   E334|        Upon the tide till underneath the feet of Los a World
FZ4-51.9;   E334|        Dark dreadful rose & Enitharmon lay at Los's feet
FZ4-51.10; E334|        The dolorous shadow joyd. weak hope appeard around his head
FZ4-51.11; E334|        Tharmas before Los stood & thus the Voice of Tharmas rolld

FZ4-51.15; E334|        Is God. The Eternal Man is seald never to be deliverd
FZ4-51.16; E334|        I roll my floods over his body my billows & waves pass over him
FZ4-51.17; E334|        The Sea encompasses him & monsters of the deep are his companions
FZ4-51.18; E334|        Dreamer of furious oceans cold sleeper of weeds & shells
FZ4-51.19; E334|        Thy Eternal form shall never renew my uncertain prevails against thee
FZ4-51.20; E334|        Yet tho I rage God over all. A portion of my Life
FZ4-51.21; E334|        That in Eternal fields in comfort wanderd with my flocks
FZ4-51.22; E334|        At noon & laid her head upon my wearied bosom at night
FZ4-51.23; E334|        She is divided She is vanishd even like Luvah & Vala   t682
FZ4-51.24; E334|        O why did foul ambition sieze thee Urizen Prince of Light   t683
FZ4-51.25; E334|        And thee O Luvah prince of Love till Tharmas was divided
FZ4-51.26; E334|        And I what can I now behold but an Eternal Death
FZ4-51.27; E334|        Before my Eyes & an Eternal weary work to strive
FZ4-51.28; E334|        Against the monstrous forms that breed among my silent waves
FZ4-51.29; E334|        Is this to be A God far rather would I be a Man
FZ4-51.30; E334|        To know sweet Science & to do with simple companions
FZ4-51.31; E334|        Sitting beneath a tent & viewing sheepfolds & soft pastures

FZ4-51.32; E335|        Take thou the hammer of Urthona rebuild these furnaces
FZ4-51.33; E335|        Dost thou refuse mind I the sparks that issue from thy hair

FZ4-52.1;   E335|        I will compell thee to rebuild by these my furious waves
FZ4-52.2;   E335|        Death choose or life thou strugglest in my waters, now choose life
FZ4-52.3;   E335|        And all the Elements shall serve thee to their soothing flutes

FZ4-52.5;   E335|        And they to thee only remit not faint not thou my son
FZ4-52.6;   E335|        Now thou dost know what tis to strive against the God of waters

FZ4-52.7;   E335|        So saying Tharmas on his furious chariots of the Deep
FZ4-52.8;   E335|        Departed far into the Unknown & left a wondrous void

FZ4-52.12; E335|        A horrible Chaos to his eyes. a formless unmeasurable Death
FZ4-52.13; E335|        Whirling up broken rocks on high into the dismal air
FZ4-52.14; E335|        And fluctuating all beneath in Eddies of molten fluid

FZ4-52.15; E335|        Then Los with terrible hands siezd on the Ruind Furnaces

FZ4-52.17; E335|        Labour of Ages in the Darkness & the war of Tharmas
FZ4-52.18; E335|        And Los formd Anvils of Iron petrific. for his blows
FZ4-52.19; E335|        Petrify with incessant beating many a rock. many a planet

FZ4-52.20; E335|        But Urizen slept in a stoned stupor in the nether Abyss
FZ4-52.21; E335|        A dreamful horrible State in tossings on his icy bed
FZ4-52.22; E335|        Freezing to solid all beneath, his grey oblivious form

FZ4-53.4;   E335|        Of many wheels resistless in the power of dark Urthona

FZ4-53.5;   E335|        But Enitharmon wrapd in clouds waild loud. for as Los beat
FZ4-53.6;   E335|        The anvils of Urthona link by link the chains of sorrow
FZ4-53.7;   E335|        Warping upon the winds & whirling round in the dark deep
FZ4-53.8;   E335|        Lashd on the limbs of Enitharmon & the sulphur fires

FZ4-53.11; E335|        Deadly between the hammers beating grateful to the Ears

FZ4-53.12; E336|        Of Los. absorbd in dire revenge he drank with joy the cries
FZ4-53.13; E336|        Of Enitharmon & the groans of Urizen fuel for his wrath
FZ4-53.14; E336|        And for his pity secret feeding on thoughts of cruelty

FZ4-53.15; E336|        The Spectre wept at his dire labours when from Ladles huge   t685
FZ4-53.16; E336|        He pourd the molten iron round the limbs of Enitharmon
FZ4-53.17; E336|        But when he pourd it round the bones of Urizen he laughd
FZ4-53.18; E336|        Hollow upon the hollow wind. his shadowy form obeying
FZ4-53.19; E336|        The voice of Los compelld he labourd round the Furnaces

FZ4-53.20; E336|        And thus began the binding of Urizen day & night in fear
FZ4-53.21; E336|        Circling round the dark Demon with howlings dismay & sharp blightings
FZ4-53.22; E336|        The Prophet of Eternity beat on his iron links & links of brass

FZ4-53.26; E336|        Ambiguous words blasphemous filld with envy firm resolvd
FZ4-53.27; E336|        On hate Eternal in his vast disdain he labourd beating

FZ5-59.9;   E340|        He wept & he divided & he laid his gloomy head
FZ5-59.10; E340|        Down on the Rock of Eternity on darkness of the deep
FZ5-59.11; E340|        Torn by black storms & ceaseless torrents of consuming fire
FZ5-59.12; E340|        Within his breast his fiery sons chaind down & filld with cursings

FZ5-59.13; E340|        And breathing terrible blood & vengeance gnashing his teeth with pain
FZ5-59.14; E340|        Let loose the Enormous Spirit in the darkness of the deep
FZ5-59.15; E340|        And his dark wife that once fair crystal form divinely clear
FZ5-59.16; E340|        Within his ribs producing serpents whose souls are flames of fire

FZ5-59.17; E340|        But now the times return upon thee Enitharmons womb
FZ5-59.18; E340|        Now holds thee soon to issue forth. Sound Clarions of war
FZ5-59.19; E340|        Call Vala from her close recess in all her dark deceit
FZ5-59.20; E340|        Then rage on rage shall fierce redound out of her crystal quiver

FZ5-59.21; E340|        So sung the Demons round red Orc & round faint Enitharmon   t710
FZ5-59.22; E340|        Sweat & blood stood on the limbs of Los in globes. his fiery Eyelids

FZ5-59.28; E340|        Of Enitharmon. Los around her builded pillars of iron

FZ5-60.1;   E340|        And brass & silver & gold fourfold in dark prophetic fear
FZ5-60.2;   E340|        For now he feard Eternal Death & uttermost Extinction   t711
FZ5-60.3;   E340|        He builded Golgonooza on the Lake of Udan Adan
FZ5-60.4;   E340|        Upon the Limit of Translucence then he builded Luban
FZ5-60.5;   E340|        Tharmas laid the Foundations & Los finishd it in howling woe

FZ5-60.6;   E340|        But when fourteen summers & winters had revolved over
FZ5-60.7;   E340|        Their solemn habitation Los beheld the ruddy boy
FZ5-60.8;   E340|        Embracing his bright mother & beheld malignant fires
FZ5-60.9;   E340|        In his young eyes discerning plain that Orc plotted his death
FZ5-60.10; E340|        Grief rose upon his ruddy brows. a tightening girdle grew
FZ5-60.11; E340|        Around his bosom like a bloody cord. in secret sobs
FZ5-60.12; E340|        He burst it, but next morn another girdle succeeds

FZ5-60.13; E341|        Around his bosom. Every day he viewd the fiery youth
FZ5-60.14; E341|        With silent fear & his immortal cheeks grew deadly pale
FZ5-60.15; E341|        Till many a morn & many a night passd over in dire woe
FZ5-60.16; E341|        Forming a girdle in the day & bursting it at night

FZ5-60.18; E341|        Falling down on the rock an iron chain link by link lockd

FZ5-60.19; E341|        Enitharmon beheld the bloody chain of nights & days
FZ5-60.20; E341|        Depending from the bosom of Los & how with griding pain   t712
FZ5-60.21; E341|        He went each morning to his labours. with the spectre dark
FZ5-60.22; E341|        Calld it the chain of jealousy. Now Los began to speak   t713
FZ5-60.23; E341|        His woes aloud to Enitharmon. since he could not hide
FZ5-60.24; E341|        His uncouth plague. He siezd the boy in his immortal hands
FZ5-60.25; E341|        While Enitharmon followd him weeping in dismal woe
FZ5-60.26; E341|        Up to the iron mountains top & there the Jealous chain
FZ5-60.27; E341|        Fell from his bosom on the mountain. The Spectre dark
FZ5-60.28; E341|        Held the fierce boy Los naild him down binding around his limbs

FZ5-61.6;   E341|        Surrounded with flames the Demon grew loud howling in his fires
FZ5-61.7;   E341|        Los folded Enitharmon in a cold white cloud in fear
FZ5-61.8;   E341|        Then led her down into the deeps & into his labyrinth
FZ5-61.9;   E341|        Giving the Spectre sternest charge over the howling fiend

FZ5-61.10; E341|        Concenterd into Love of Parent Storgous Appetite Craving

FZ5-62.3;   E342|        Where the herds low after the shadow & after the water spring
FZ5-62.4;   E342|        The numrous flocks cover the mountain & shine along the valley
FZ5-62.5;   E342|        His knees are rocks of adamant & rubie & emerald
FZ5-62.6;   E342|        Spirits of strength in Palaces rejoice in golden armour   t717
FZ5-62.7;   E342|        Armed with spear & shield they drink & rejoice over the slain
FZ5-62.8;   E342|        Such is the Demon such his terror in the nether deep

FZ5-62.9;   E342|        But when returnd to Golgonooza Los & Enitharmon
FZ5-62.10; E342|        Felt all the sorrow Parents feel. they wept toward one another
FZ5-62.11; E342|        And Los repented that he had chaind Orc upon the mountain
FZ5-62.12; E342|        And Enitharmons tears prevaild parental love returnd
FZ5-62.13; E342|        Tho terrible his dread of that infernal chain They rose
FZ5-62.14; E342|        At midnight hasting to their much beloved care
FZ5-62.15; E342|        Nine days they traveld thro the Gloom of Entuthon Benithon
FZ5-62.16; E342|        Los taking Enitharmon by the hand led her along
FZ5-62.17; E342|        The dismal vales & up to the iron mountains top where Orc
FZ5-62.18; E342|        Howld in the furious wind he thought to give to Enitharmon
FZ5-62.19; E342|        Her son in tenfold joy & to compensate for her tears
FZ5-62.20; E342|        Even if his own death resulted so much pity him paind

FZ5-62.21; E342|        But when they came to the dark rock & to the spectrous cave
FZ5-62.22; E342|        Lo the young limbs had strucken root into the rock & strong
FZ5-62.23; E342|        Fibres had from the Chain of Jealousy inwove themselves
FZ5-62.24; E342|        In a swift vegetation round the rock & round the Cave
FZ5-62.25; E342|        And over the immortal limbs of the terrible fiery boy
FZ5-62.26; E342|        In vain they strove now to unchain. In vain with bitter tears
FZ5-62.27; E342|        To melt the chain of Jealousy. not Enitharmons death
FZ5-62.28; E342|        Nor the Consummation of Los could ever melt the chain
FZ5-62.29; E342|        Nor unroot the infernal fibres from their rocky bed
FZ5-62.30; E342|        Nor all Urthonas strength nor all the power of Luvahs Bulls
FZ5-62.31; E342|        Tho they each morning drag the unwilling Sun out of the deep
FZ562.32; E342|        Could uproot the infernal chain. for it had taken root   t718

FZ5-63.1;   E342|        Into the iron rock & grew a chain beneath the Earth
FZ5-63.2;   E342|        Even to the Center wrapping round the Center & the limbs
FZ5-63.3;   E342|        Of Orc entering with fibres. became one with him a living Chain
FZ5-63.4;   E342|        Sustained by the Demons life. Despair & Terror & Woe & Rage

FZ5-63.5;   E343|        Inwrap the Parents in cold clouds as they bend howling over
FZ5-63.6;   E343|        The terrible boy till fainting by his side the Parents fell

FZ5-63.7;   E343|        Not long they lay Urthonas spectre found herbs of the pit
FZ5-63.8;   E343|        Rubbing their temples he reviv'd them. all their lamentations
FZ5-63.9;   E343|        I write not here but all their after life was lamentation

FZ5-63.10; E343|        When satiated with grief they returnd back to Golgonooza   t719
FZ5-63.11; E343|        Enitharmon on the road of Dranthon felt the inmost gate
FZ5-63.12; E343|        Of her bright heart burst open & again close with a deadly pain   t720
FZ5-63.13; E343|        Within her heart Vala began to reanimate in bursting sobs   t721
FZ5-63.14; E343|        And when the Gate was open she beheld that dreary Deep   t722
FZ5-63.15; E343|        Where bright Ahania wept. She also saw the infernal roots

FZ5-63.16; E343|        Of the chain of Jealousy & felt the rendings of fierce howling Orc

FZ5-63.17; E343|        Rending the Caverns like a mighty wind pent in the Earth
FZ5-63.18; E343|        Tho wide apart as furthest north is from the furthest south   t723
FZ5-63.19; E343|        Urizen trembled where he lay to hear the howling terror
FZ5-63.20; E343|        The rocks shook the Eternal bars tuggd to & fro were rifted
FZ5-63.21; E343|        Outstretchd upon the stones of ice the ruins of his throne
FZ5-63.22; E343|        Urizen shuddring heard his trembling limbs shook the strong caves

FZ5-63.23; E343|        The Woes of Urizen shut up in the deep dens of Urthona

FZ5-63.24; E343|        Ah how shall Urizen the King submit to this dark mansion
FZ5-63.25; E343|        Ah how is this! Once on the heights I stretchd my throne sublime
FZ5-63.26; E343|        The mountains of Urizen once of silver where the sons of wisdom dwelt
FZ5-63.27; E343|        And on whose tops the Virgins sag are rocks of Desolation

FZ5-63.28; E343|        My fountains once the haunt of Swans now breed the scaly tortoise
FZ5-63.29; E343|        The houses of my harpers are become a haunt of crows
FZ5-63.30; E343|        The gardens of wisdom are become a field of horrid graves
FZ5-63.31; E343|        And on the bones I drop my tears & water them in vain

FZ5-64.1;   E343|        Once how I walked from my palace in gardens of delight
FZ5-64.2;   E343|        The sons of wisdom stood around the harpers followd with harps
FZ5-64.3;   E343|        Nine virgins clothd in light composd the song to their immortal voices
FZ5-64.4;   E343|        And at my banquets of new wine my head was crownd with joy

FZ5-64.5;   E343|        Then in my ivory pavilions I slumberd in the noon   t724
FZ5-64.6;   E343|        And walked in the silent night among sweet smelling flowers
FZ5-64.7;   E343|        Till on my silver bed I slept & sweet dreams round me hoverd
FZ5-64.8;   E343|        But now my land is darkend & my wise men are departed

FZ5-64.9;   E343|        My songs are turned to cries of Lamentation   t725
FZ5-64.10; E343|        Heard on my Mountains & deep sighs under my palace roofs
FZ5-64.11; E343|        Because the Steeds of Urizen once swifter than the light
FZ5-64.12; E343|        Were kept back from my Lord & from his chariot of mercies

FZ5-64.13; E344|        O did I keep the horses of the day in silver pastures
FZ5-64.14; E344|        O I refusd the Lord of day the horses of his prince
FZ5-64.15; E344|        O did I close my treasuries with roofs of solid stone
FZ5-64.16; E344|        And darken all my Palace walls with envyings & hate

FZ5-64.17; E344|        O Fool to think that I could hide from his all piercing eyes
FZ5-64.18; E344|        The gold & silver & costly stones his holy workmanship
FZ5-64.19; E344|        O Fool could I forget the light that filled my bright spheres
FZ5-64.20; E344|        Was a reflection of his face who calld me from the deep

FZ5-64.21; E344|        I well remember for I heard the mild & holy voice
FZ5-64.22; E344|        Saying O light spring up & shine & I sprang up from the deep   t726
FZ5-64.23; E344|        He gave to me a silver scepter & crownd me with a golden crown
FZ5-64.24; E344|        & said Go forth & guide my Son who wanders on the ocean   t727

FZ5-64.25; E344|        I went not forth. I hid myself in black clouds of my wrath
FZ5-64.26; E344|        I calld the stars around my feet in the night of councils dark
FZ5-64.27; E344|        The stars threw down their spears & fled naked away
FZ5-64.28; E344|        We fell. I siezd thee dark Urthona In my left hand falling

FZ5-64.29; E344|        I siezd thee beauteous Luvah thou art faded like a flower
FZ5-64.30; E344|        And like a lilly is thy wife Vala witherd by winds
FZ5-64.31; E344|        When thou didst bear the golden cup at the immortal tables
FZ5-64.32; E344|        Thy children smote their fiery wings crownd with the gold of heaven

FZ5-65.1;   E344|        Thy pure feet stepd on the steps divine. too pure for other feet
FZ5-65.2;   E344|        And thy fair locks shadowd thine eyes from the divine effulgence
FZ5-65.3;   E344|        Then thou didst keep with Strong Urthona the living gates of heaven
FZ5-65.4;   E344|        But now thou art bound down with him even to the gates of hell

FZ5-65.5;   E344|        Because thou gavest Urizen the wine of the Almighty
FZ5-65.6;   E344|        For steeds of Light that they might run in thy golden chariot of pride
FZ5-65.7;   E344|        I gave to thee the Steeds I pourd the stolen wine
FZ5-65.8;   E344|        And drunken with the immortal draught fell from my throne sublime

FZ5-65.9;   E344|        I will arise Explore these dens & find that deep pulsation
FZ5-65.10; E344|        That shakes my caverns with strong shudders. perhaps this is the night
FZ5-65.11; E344|        Of Prophecy & Luvah hath burst his way from Enitharmon
FZ5-65.12; E344|        When Thought is closd in Caves. Then love shall shew its root in deepest Hell

FZ6-header; E344|        Night the Sixth   t729

FZ6-67.1;   E344|        So Urizen arose & leaning on his Spear explord his dens
FZ6-67.2;   E344|        He threw his flight thro the dark air to where a river flowd

FZ6-67.3;   E345|        And taking off his silver helmet filled it & drank
FZ6-67.4;   E345|        But when Unsatiated his thirst he assayd to gather more
FZ6-67.5;   E345|        Lo three terrific women at the verge of the bright flood
FZ6-67.6;   E345|        Who would not suffer him to approach. but drove him back with storms

FZ6-67.7;   E345|        Urizen knew them not & thus addressd the spirits of darkness

FZ6-67.8;   E345|        Who art thou Eldest Woman sitting in thy clouds
FZ6-67.9;   E345|        What is that name written on thy forehead? what art thou?
FZ6-67.10; E345|        And wherefore dost thou pour this water forth in sighs & care

FZ6-67.11; E345|        She answerd not but filld her urn & pourd it forth abroad

FZ6-67.12; E345|        Answerest thou not said Urizen. then thou maist answer me
FZ6-67.13; E345|        Thou terrible woman clad in blue, whose strong attractive power
FZ6-67.14; E345|        Draws all into a fountain at the rock of thy attraction
FZ6-67.15; E345|        With frowning brow thou sittest mistress of these mighty waters

FZ6-67.16; E345|        She answerd not but stretchd her arms & threw her limbs abroad

FZ6-67.17; E345|        Or wilt thou answer youngest Woman clad in shining green   t730
FZ6-67.18; E345|        With labour & care thou dost divide the current into four   t731
FZ6-67.19; E345|        Queen of these dreadful rivers speak & let me hear thy voice

FZ6-68.1;   E345|        They reard up a wall of rocks and Urizen raisd his spear.   t732
FZ6-68.2;   E345|        They gave a scream, they knew their father Urizen knew his daughters
FZ6-68.3;   E345|        They shrunk into their channels. dry the rocky strand beneath his feet
FZ6-68.4;   E345|        Hiding themselves in rocky forms from the Eyes of Urizen

FZ6-68.5;   E345|        Then Urizen wept & thus his lamentation poured forth

FZ6-68.6;   E345|        O horrible O dreadful state! those whom I loved best
FZ6-68.7;   E345|        On whom I pourd the beauties of my light adorning them
FZ6-68.8;   E345|        With jewels & precious ornament labourd with art divine
FZ6-68.9;   E345|        Vests of the radiant colours of heaven & crowns of golden fire
FZ6-68.10; E345|        I gave sweet lillies to their breasts & roses to their hair
FZ6-68.11; E345|        I taught them songs of sweet delight, I gave their tender voices
FZ6-68.12; E345|        Into the blue expanse & I invented with laborious art
FZ6-68.13; E345|        Sweet instruments of sound. in pride encompassing my Knees
FZ6-68.14; E345|        They pourd their radiance above all. the daughters of Luvah Envied
FZ6-68.15; E345|        At their exceeding brightness & the sons of eternity sent them gifts
FZ6-68.16; E345|        Now will I pour my fry on them & I will reverse
FZ6-68.17; E345|        The precious benediction. for their colours of loveliness
FZ6-68.18; E345|        I will give blackness for jewels hoary frost for ornament deformity
FZ6-68.19; E345|        For crowns wreathd Serpents for sweet odors stinking corruptibility
FZ6-68.20; E345|        For voices of delight hoarse croakings inarticulate thro frost
FZ6-68.21; E345|        For labourd fatherly care & sweet instruction. I will give
FZ6-68.22; E345|        Chains of dark ignorance & cords of twisted self conceit
FZ6-68.23; E345|        And whips of stern repentance & food of stubborn obstinacy
FZ6-68.24; E345|        That they may curse Tharmas their God & Los his adopted son

FZ6-68.25; E346|        That they may curse & worship the obscure Demon of destruction
FZ6-68.26; E346|        That they may worship terrors & obey the violent

FZ6-68.28; E346|        Tharmas heard the deadly scream across his watry world
FZ6-68.29; E346|        And Urizens loud sounding voice lamenting on the wind
FZ6-68.30; E346|        And he came riding in his fury. froze to solid were his waves

FZ6-69.1;   E346|        Silent in ridges he beheld them stand round Urizen
FZ6-69.2;   E346|        A dreary waste of solid waters for the King of Light
FZ6-69.3;   E346|        Darkend his brows with his cold helmet & his gloomy spear
FZ6-69.4;   E346|        Darkend before him. Silent on the ridgy waves he took
FZ6-69.5;   E346|        His gloomy way before him Tharmas fled & flying fought

FZ6-69.6;   E346|        Crying. What & who art thou Cold Demon. art thou Urizen
FZ6-69.7;   E346|        Art thou like me risen again from death or art thou deathless

FZ6-69.15; E346|        Withhold thy light from me for ever & I will withhold
FZ6-69.16; E346|        From thee thy food so shall we cease to be & all our sorrows
FZ6-69.17; E346|        End & the Eternal Man no more renew beneath our power   t734
FZ6-69.18; E346|        If thou refusest in eternal flight thy beams in vain
FZ6-69.19; E346|        Shall pursue Tharmas & in vain shalt crave for food I will
FZ6-69.20; E346|        Pour down my flight thro dark immensity Eternal falling
FZ6-69.21; E346|        Thou shalt pursue me but in vain till starvd upon the void
FZ6-69.22; E346|        Thou hangst a dried skin shrunk up weak wailing in the wind

FZ6-69.23; E346|        So Tharmas spoke but Urizen replied not. On his way
FZ6-69.24; E346|        He took. high bounding over hills & desarts floods & horrible chasms
FZ6-69.25; E346|        Infinite was his labour without end his travel he strove
FZ6-69.26; E346|        In vain for hideous monsters of the deeps annoyd him sore
FZ6-69.27; E346|        Scaled & finnd with iron & brass they devourd the path before him
FZ6-69.28; E346|        Incessant was the conflict. On he bent his weary steps
FZ6-69.29; E346|        Making a path toward the dark world of Urthona. he rose
FZ6-69.30; E346|        With pain upon the dreary mountains & with pain descended   t735
FZ6-69.31; E346|        And saw their grizly fears & his eyes sickend at the sight
FZ6-69.32; E346|        The howlings gnashings groanings shriekings shudderings sobbings burstings
FZ6-69.33; E346|        Mingle together to create a world for Los. In cruel delight

FZ6-70[1st].1;   E346|        Los brooded on the darkness. nor saw Urizen with a Globe of fire
FZ6-70[1st].2;   E346|        Lighting his dismal journey thro the pathless world of death

FZ6-70[1st].3;   E347|        Writing in bitter tears & groans in books of iron & brass
FZ6-70[1st].4;   E347|        The enormous wonders of the Abysses once his brightest joy

FZ6-70[1st].5;   E347|        For Urizen beheld the terrors of the Abyss wandring among
FZ6-70[1st].6;   E347|        The ruind spirits once his children & the children of Luvah
FZ6-70[1st].7;   E347|        Scard at the sound of their own sigh that seems to shake the immense
FZ6-70[1st].8;   E347|        They wander Moping in their heart a Sun a Dreary moon
FZ6-70[1st].9;   E347|        A Universe of fiery constellations in their brain
FZ6-70[1st].10; E347|        An Eart of wintry woe beneath their feet & round their loins   t736
FZ6-70[1st].11; E347|        Waters or winds or clouds or brooding lightnings & pestilential plagues
FZ6-70[1st].12; E347|        Beyond the bounds of their own self their senses cannot penetrate
FZ6-70[1st].13; E347|        As the tree knows not what is outside of its leaves & bark
FZ6-70[1st].14; E347|        And yet it drinks the summer joy & fears the winter sorrow
FZ6-70[1st].15; E347|        So in the regions of the grave none knows his dark compeer
FZ6-70[1st].16; E347|        Tho he partakes of his dire woes & mutual returns the pang
FZ6-70[1st].17; E347|        The throb the dolor the convulsion in soul sickening woes   t737

FZ6-70[1st].18; E347|        The horrid shapes & sights of torment in burning dungeons & in
FZ6-70[1st].19; E347|        Fetters of red hot iron some with crowns of serpents & some
FZ6-70[1st].20; E347|        With monsters girding round their bosoms, Some lying on beds of sulphur
FZ6-70[1st].21; E347|        On racks & wheels he beheld women marching oer burning wastes
FZ6-70[1st].22; E347|        Of Sand in bands of hundreds & of fifties & of thousands strucken with
FZ6-70[1st].23; E347|        Lightnings which blazed after them upon their shoulders in their march
FZ6-70[1st].24; E347|        In successive vollies with loud thunders swift flew the King of Light
FZ6-70[1st].25; E347|        Over the burning desarts Then the desarts passd. involvd in clouds
FZ6-70[1st].26; E347|        Of smoke with myriads moping in the stifling vapours. Swift
FZ6-70[1st].27; E347|        Flew the King tho flagd his powers labring. till over rocks
FZ6-70[1st].28; E347|        And Mountains faint weary he wanderd. where multitudes were shut
FZ6-70[1st].29; E347|        Up in the solid mountains & in rocks which heaved with their torments
FZ6-70[1st].30; E347|        Then came he among fiery cities & castles built of burning steel
FZ6-70[1st].31; E347|        Then he beheld the forms of tygers & of Lions dishumanizd men
FZ6-70[1st].32; E347|        Many in serpents & in worms stretchd out enormous length
FZ6-70[1st].33; E347|        Over the sullen mould & slimy tracks obstruct his way
FZ6-70[1st].34; E347|        Drawn out from deep to deep woven by ribbd
FZ6-70[1st].35; E347|        And scaled monsters or armd in iron shell or shell of brass
FZ6-70[st].36; E347|        Or gold a glittering torment shining & hissing in eternal pain
FZ6-70[1st].37; E347|        Some [as] columns of fire or of water sometimes stretchd out in heighth   t738
FZ6-70[1st].38; E347|        Sometimes in length sometimes englobing wandering in vain seeking for ease   t739
FZ6-70[1st].39; E347|        His voice to them was but an inarticulate thunder for their Ears
FZ6-70[1st].40; E347|        Were heavy & dull & their eyes & nostrils closed up
FZ6-70[1st].41; E347|        Oft he stood by a howling victim Questioning in words
FZ6-70[1st].42; E347|        Soothing or Furious no one answerd every one wrapd up
FZ6-70[1st].43; E347|        In his own sorrow howld regardless of his words, nor voice
FZ6-70[1st].44; E347|        Of sweet response could he obtain tho oft assayd with tears
FZ6-70[1st].45; E347|        He knew they were his Children ruind in his ruind world   t740

FZ6-71[1st].1;   E348|        Oft would he stand & question a fierce scorpion glowing with gold
FZ6-71[1st].2;   E348|        In vain the terror heard not. then a lion he would Sieze
FZ6-71[1st].3;   E348|        By the fierce mane staying his howling course in vain the voice  t741
FZ6-71[1st].4;   E348|        Of Urizen vain the Eloquent tongue. A Rock a Cloud a Mountain
FZ6-71[1st].5;   E348|        Were now not Vocal as in Climes of happy Eternity
FZ6-71[1st].6;   E348|        Where the lamb replies to the infant voice & the lion to the man of years
FZ6-71[1st].7;   E348|        Giving them sweet instructions Where the Cloud the River & the Field
FZ6-71[1st].8;   E348|        Talk with the husbandman & shepherd. But these attackd him sore
FZ6-71[1st].9;   E348|        Siezing upon his feet & rending the Sinews that in Caves
FZ6-71[1st].10; E348|        He hid to recure his obstructed powers with rest & oblivion

FZ6-70[2nd].46; E348|        Here he had time enough to repent of his rashly threatend curse
FZ6-70[2nd].47; E348|        He saw them cursd beyond his Curse his soul melted with fear

FZ6-71[2nd].11; E348|        He could not take their fetters off for they grew from the soul
FZ6-71[2nd].12; E348|        Nor could he quench the fires for they flamd out from the heart
FZ6-71[2nd].13; E348|        Nor cold he calm the Elements because himself was Subject
FZ6-71[2nd].14; E348|        So he threw his flight in terror & pain & in repentant tears

FZ6-71[2nd].15; E348|        When he had passd these southern terrors he approachd the East
FZ6-71[2nd].16; E348|        Void pathless beaten With iron sleet & eternal hail & rain   t742
FZ6-71[2nd].17; E348|        No form was there no living thing & yet his way lay thro
FZ6-71[2nd].18; E348|        This dismal world. he stood a while & lookd back oer his former
FZ6-71[2nd].19; E348|        Terrific voyage. Hills & Vales of torment & despair
FZ6-71[2nd].20; E348|        Sighing & Wiping a fresh tear. then turning round he threw
FZ6-71[2nd].21; E348|        Himself into the dismal void. falling he fell & fell
FZ6-71[2nd].22; E348|        Whirling in unresistible revolutions down & down
FZ6-71[2nd].23; E348|        In the horrid bottomless vacuity falling failing falling
FZ6-71[2nd].24; E348|        Into the Eastern vacuity the empty world of Luvah

FZ6-71[2nd].25; E348|        The ever pitying one who seeth all things saw his fall
FZ6-71[2nd].26; E348|        And in the dark vacuity created a bosom of clay   t743
FZ6-71[2nd].27; E348|        When wearied dead he fell his limbs reposd in the bosom of slime
FZ6-71[2nd].28; E348|        As the seed falls from the sowers hand so Urizen fell & death
FZ6-71[2nd].29; E348|        Shut up his powers in oblivion. then as the seed shoots forth
FZ6-71[2nd].30; E348|        In pain & sorrow. So the slimy bed his limbs renewd
FZ6-71[2nd].31; E348|        At first an infant weakness. periods passd he gatherd strength
FZ6-71[2nd].32; E348|        But still in solitude he sat then rising threw his flight
FZ6-71[2nd].33; E348|        Onward tho falling thro the waste of night & ending in death
FZ6-71[2nd].34; E348|        And in another resurrection to sorrow & weary travel
FZ6-71[2nd].35; E348|        But still his books he bore in his strong hands & his iron pen
FZ6-71[2nd].36; E348|        For when he died they lay beside his grave & when he rose   t744
FZ6-71[2nd].37; E348|        He siezd them with a gloomy smile for wrapd in his death clothes   t745
FZ6-71[2nd].38; E348|        He hid them when he slept in death when he revivd the clothes
FZ6-71[2nd].39; E348|        Were rotted by the winds the books remaind still unconsumd

FZ6-71[2nd].40; E349|        Still to be written & interleavd with brass & iron & gold
FZ6-71[2nd].41; E349|        Time after time for such a journey none but iron pens
FZ6-71[2nd].42; E349|        Can write And adamantine leaves recieve nor can the man who goes

FZ6-72.1;   E349|        The journey obstinate refuse to write time after time

FZ6-72.2;   E349|        Endless had been his travel but the Divine hand him led   t746
FZ6-72.3;   E349|        For infinite the distance & obscurd by Combustions dire
FZ6-72.4;   E349|        By rocky masses frowning in the abysses revolving erratic
FZ6-72.5;   E349|        Round Lakes of fire in the dark deep the ruins of Urizens world
FZ6-72.6;   E349|        Oft would he sit in a dark rift & regulate his books
FZ6-72.7;   E349|        Or sleep such sleep as spirits eternal wearied in his dark
FZ6-72.8;   E349|        Tearful & sorrowful state. then rise look out & ponder
FZ6-72.9;   E349|        His dismal voyage eyeing the next sphere tho far remote
FZ6-72.10; E349|        Then darting into the Abyss of night his venturous limbs
FZ6-72.11; E349|        Thro lightnings thunders earthquakes & concussions fires & floods
FZ6-72.12; E349|        Stemming his downward fall labouring up against futurity
FZ6-72.13; E349|        Creating many a Vortex fixing many a Science in the deep
FZ6-72.14; E349|        And thence throwing his venturous limbs into the Vast unknown
FZ6-72.15; E349|        Swift Swift from Chaos to chaos from void to void a road immense

FZ6-72.16; E349|        For when he came to where a Vortex ceasd to operate
FZ6-72.17; E349|        Nor down nor up remaind then if he turnd & lookd back
FZ6-72.18; E349|        From whence he came twas upward all. & if he turnd and viewd
FZ6-72.19; E349|        The unpassd void upward was still his mighty wandring
FZ6-72.20; E349|        The midst between an Equilibrium grey of air serene
FZ6-72.21; E349|        Where he might live in peace & where his life might meet repose

FZ6-72.22; E349|        But Urizen said Can I not leave this world of Cumbrous wheels
FZ6-72.23; E349|        Circle oer Circle nor on high attain a void
FZ6-72.24; E349|        Where self sustaining I may view all things beneath my feet
FZ6-72.25; E349|        Or sinking thro these Elemental wonders swift to fall
FZ6-72.26; E349|        I thought perhaps to find an End a world beneath of voidness
FZ6-72.27; E349|        Whence I might travel round the outside of this Dark confusion
FZ6-72.28; E349|        When I bend downward bending my bead downward into the deep
FZ6-72.29; E349|        Tis upward all which way soever I my course begin
FZ6-72.30; E349|        But when A Vortex formd on high by labour & sorrow & care
FZ6-72.31; E349|        And weariness begins on all my limbs then sleep revives
FZ6-72.32; E349|        My wearied spirits waking then tis downward all which way
FZ6-72.33; E349|        So ever I my spirits turn no end I find of all
FZ6-72.34; E349|        O what a world is here unlike those climes of bliss
FZ6-72.35; E349|        Where my sons gatherd round my knees O thou poor ruind world
FZ6-72.36; E349|        Thou horrible ruin once like me thou wast all glorious
FZ6-72.37; E349|        And now like me partaking desolate thy masters lot
FZ6-72.38; E349|        Art thou O ruin the once glorious heaven are these thy rocks
FZ6-72.39; E349|        Where joy sang in the trees & pleasure sported on the rivers

FZ6-73.1;   E350|        And laughter sat beneath the Oaks & innocence sported round
FZ6-73.2;   E350|        Upon the green plains & sweet friendship met in palaces
FZ6-73.3;   E350|        And books & instruments of song & pictures of delight
FZ6-73.4;   E350|        Where are they whelmd beneath these ruins in horrible destruction   t747
FZ6-73.5;   E350|        And if Eternal falling I repose on the dark bosom
FZ6-73.6;   E350|        Of winds & waters or thence fall into a Void where air
FZ6-73.7;   E350|        Is not down falling thro immensity ever & ever
FZ6-73.8;   E350|        I lose my powers weakend every revolution till a death
FZ6-73.9;   E350|        Shuts up my powers then a seed in the vast womb of darkness
FZ6-73.10; E350|        I dwell in dim oblivion. brooding over me the Enormous worlds
FZ6-73.11; E350|        Reorganize me shooting forth in bones & flesh & blood
FZ6-73.12; E350|        I am regenerated to fall or rise at will or to remain
FZ6-73.13; E350|        A labourer of ages a dire discontent a living woe
FZ6-73.14; E350|        Wandring in vain. Here will I fix my foot & here rebuild
FZ6-73.15; E350|        Here Mountains of Brass promise much riches in their dreadful bosoms   t748

FZ6-73.16; E350|        So he began to dig form[ing] of gold silver & iron   t749
FZ6-73.17; E350|        And brass vast instruments to measure out the immense & fix
FZ6-73.18; E350|        The whole into another world better suited to obey
FZ6-73.19; E350|        His will where none should dare oppose his will himself being King
FZ6-73.20; E350|        Of All & all futurity be bound in his vast chain

FZ6-73.21; E350|        And the Sciences were fixd & the Vortexes began to operate
FZ6-73.22; E350|        On all the sons of men & every human soul terrified
FZ6-73.23; E350|        At the turning wheels of heaven shrunk away inward withring away
FZ6-73.24; E350|        Gaining a New Dominion over all his sons & Daughters
FZ6-73.25; E350|        & over the Sons & daughters of Luvah in the horrible Abyss
FZ6-73.26; E350|        For Urizen lamented over them in a selfish lamentation
FZ6-73.27; E350|        Till a white woof coverd his cold limbs from head to feet   t750
FZ6-73.28; E350|        Hair white as snow coverd him in flaky locks terrific
FZ6-73.29; E350|        Overspreading his limbs. in pride he wanderd weeping
FZ6-73.30; E350|        Clothed in aged venerableness obstinately resolvd
FZ6-73.31; E350|        Travelling thro darkness & whereever he traveld a dire Web
FZ6-73.32; E350|        Followd behind him as the Web of a Spider dusky & cold
FZ6-73.33; E350|        Shivering across from Vortex to Vortex drawn out from his mantle of years
FZ6-73.34; E350|        A living Mantle adjoind to his life & growing from his Soul

FZ6-73.35; E350|        And the Web of Urizen stre[t]chd direful shivring in clouds
FZ6-73.36; E350|        And uttering such woes such bursts such thunderings   t751
FZ6-73.37; E350|        The eyelids expansive as morning & the Ears
FZ6-73.38; E350|        As a golden ascent winding round to the heavens of heavens
FZ6-73.39; E350|        Within the dark horrors of the Abysses lion or tyger or scorpion

FZ6-74.1;   E350|        For every one opend within into Eternity at will
FZ6-74.2;   E350|        But they refusd because their outward forms were in the Abyss

FZ6-74.3;   E351|        And the wing like tent of the Universe beautiful surrounding all
FZ6-74.4;   E351|        Or drawn up or let down at the will of the immortal man
FZ6-74.5;   E351|        Vibrated in such anguish the eyelids quiverd
FZ6-74.6;   E351|        Weak & Weaker their expansive orbs began shrinking
FZ6-74.7;   E351|        Pangs smote thro the brain & a universal shriek
FZ6-74.8;   E351|        Ran thro the abysses rending the web torment on torment

FZ6-74.9;   E351|        Thus Urizen in sorrows wanderd many a dreary way
FZ6-74.10; E351|        Warring with monsters of the Deeps in his most hideous pilgrimage
FZ6-74.11; E351|        Till his bright hair scatterd in snows his skin barkd oer with wrinkles
FZ6-74.12; E351|        Four Caverns rooting downwards their foundations thrusting forth
FZ6-74.13; E351|        The metal rock & stone in ever painful throes of vegetation
FZ6-74.14; E351|        The Cave of Orc stood to the South a furnace of dire flames
FZ6-74.15; E351|        Quenchless unceasing. In the west the Cave of Urizen
FZ6-74.16; E351|        For Urizen fell as the Midday sun falls down into the West
FZ6-74.17; E351|        North stood Urthonas stedfast throne a World of Solid darkness
FZ6-74.18; E351|        Shut up in stifling obstruction rooted in dumb despair
FZ6-74.19; E351|        The East was Void. But Tharmas rolld his billows in ceaseless eddies
FZ6-74.20; E351|        Void pathless beat with Snows eternal & iron hail & rain   t752
FZ6-74.21; E351|        All thro the caverns of fire & air & Earth, Seeking
FZ6-74.22; E351|        For Enions limbs nought finding but the black sea weed & sickning slime
FZ6-74.23; E351|        Flying away from Urizen that he might not give him food
FZ6-74.24; E351|        Above beneath on all sides round in the vast deep of immensity
FZ6-74.25; E351|        That he might starve the sons & daughters of Urizen on the winds
FZ6-74.26; E351|        Making between horrible chasms into the vast unknown
FZ6-74.27; E351|        All these around the world of Los cast forth their monstrous births
FZ6-74.28; E351|        But in Eternal times the Seat of Urizen is in the South   t753
FZ6-74.29; E351|        Urthona in the North Luvah in East Tharmas in West

FZ6-74.30; E351|        And now he came into the Abhorred world of Dark Urthona
FZ6-74.31; E351|        By Providence divine conducted not bent from his own will
FZ6-74.32; E351|        Lest death Eternal should be the result for the Will cannot be violated
FZ6-74.33; E351|        Into the doleful vales where no tree grew nor river flowd
FZ6-74.34; E351|        Nor man nor beast nor creeping thing nor sun nor cloud nor star
FZ6-74.35; E351|        Still he with his globe of fire immense in his venturous hand
FZ6-74.36; E351|        Bore on thro the Affrighted vales ascending & descending
FZ6-74.37; E351|        Oerwearied or in cumbrous flight he venturd oer dark rifts
FZ6-74.38; E351|        Or down dark precipices or climbd with pain and labour huge
FZ6-74.39; E351|        Till he beheld the world of Los from the Peaked rock of Urthona
FZ6-74.40; E351|        And heard the howling of red Orc distincter & distincter

FZ6-75.1;   E351|        Redoubling his immortal efforts thro the narrow vales
FZ6-75.2;   E351|        With difficulty down descending guided by his Ear
FZ6-75.3;   E351|        And by his globe of fire he went down the Vale of Urthona   t754
FZ6-75.4;   E351|        Between the enormous iron walls built by the Spectre dark

FZ6-75.5;   E352|        Dark grew his globe reddning with mists & full before his path
FZ6-75.6;   E352|        Striding across the narrow vale the Shadow of Urthona   t755
FZ6-75.7;   E352|        A spectre Vast appeard whose feet & legs with iron scaled
FZ6-75.8;   E352|        Stampd the hard rocks expectant of the unknown wanderer
FZ6-75.9;   E352|        Whom he had seen wandring his nether world when distant far
FZ6-75.10; E352|        And watchd his swift approach collected dark the Spectre stood
FZ6-75.11; E352|        Beside hi[m] Tharmas stayd his flight & stood in stern defiance   t756
FZ6-75.12; E352|        Communing with the Spectre who rejoicd along the vale
FZ6-75.13; E352|        Round his loins a girdle glowd with many colourd fires
FZ6-75.14; E352|        In his hand a knotted Club whose knots like mountains frownd
FZ6-75.15; E352|        Desart among the Stars them withering with its ridges cold
FZ6-75.16; E352|        Black scales of iron arm the dread visage iron spikes instead
FZ6-75.17; E352|        Of hair shoot from his orbed scull. his glowing eyes
FZ6-75.18; E352|        Burn like two furnaces. he calld with Voice of Thunder

FZ6-75.19; E352|        Four winged heralds mount the furious blasts & blow their trumps
FZ6-75.20; E352|        Gold Silver Brass & iron clangors clamoring rend the shores   t757
FZ6-75.21; E352|        Like white clouds rising from the Vales his fifty two armies
FZ6-75.22; E352|        From the four Cliffs of Urthona rise glowing around the Spectre

FZ7a-77.18; E353|        That Urizen approachd not near but took his seat on a rock
FZ7a-77.19; E353|        And rangd his books around him brooding Envious over Orc   t762

FZ7a-77.20; E353|        Howling & rending his dark caves the awful Demon lay
FZ7a-77.21; E353|        Pulse after pulse beat on his fetters pulse after pulse his spirit
FZ7a-77.22; E353|        Darted & darted higher & higher to the shrine of Enitharmon
FZ7a-77.23; E353|        As when the thunder folds himself in thickest clouds
FZ7a-77.24; E353|        The watry nations couch & hide in the profoundest deeps
FZ7a-77.25; E353|        Then bursting from his troubled head with terrible visages & flaming hair

FZ7a-78.3;   E353|        While his snows fell & his storms beat to cool the flames of Orc
FZ7a-78.4;   E353|        Age after Age till underneath his heel a deadly root
FZ7a-78.5;   E353|        Struck thro the rock the root of Mystery accursed shooting up

FZ7a-79.25; E355|        Rending the Rocks Eleth & Uveth rose & Ona rose
FZ7a-79.26; E355|        Terrific with their iron vessels driving them across
FZ7a-79.27; E355|        In the dim air they took the book of iron & placd above

FZ7a-79.33; E355|        The heavens bow with terror underneath their iron hands
FZ7a-79.34; E355|        Singing at their dire work the words of Urizens book of iron
FZ7a-79.35; E355|        While the enormous scrolls rolld dreadful in the heavens above
FZ7a-79.36; E355|        And still the burden of their song in tears was poured forth
FZ7a-79.37; E355|        The bread is Kneaded let us rest O cruel father of children

FZ7a-79.38; E355|        But Urizen remitted not their labours upon his rock

FZ7a-80.5;   E355|        To bring the shadow of Enitharmon beneath our wondrous tree
FZ7a-80.6;   E355|        That Los may Evaporate like smoke & be no more
FZ7a-80.7;   E355|        Draw down Enitharmon to the Spectre of Urthona
FZ7a-80.8;   E355|        And let him have dominion over Los the terrible shade

FZ7a-80.13; E355|        Born even too many & our Earth will be overrun
FZ7a-80.14; E355|        Without these arts If you would make the poor live with temper

FZ7a-80.25; E356|        By gratified desire by strong devouring appetite she fills
FZ7a-80.26; E356|        Los with ambitious fury that his race shall all devour

FZ7a-80.28; E356|        In scales that shine with gold & rubies thou beginnest to weaken
FZ7a-80.29; E356|        My divided Spirit Like a worm I rise in peace unbound

FZ7a-80.41; E356|        And I know thee is this the triumph this the Godlike State
FZ7a-80.42; E356|        That lies beyond the bounds of Science in the Grey obscure

FZ7a-80.43; E356|        Terrified Urizen heard Orc now certain that he was Luvah
FZ7a-80.44; E356|        And Orc began to Organize a Serpent body   t771
FZ7a-80.45; E356|        Despising Urizens light & turning it into flaming fire
FZ7a-80.46; E356|        Recieving as a poisond Cup Recieves the heavenly wine
FZ7a-80.47; E356|        And turning affection into fury & thought into abstraction   t772
FZ7a-80.48; E356|        A Self consuming dark devourer rising into the heavens

FZ7a-80.49; E356|        Urizen envious brooding sat & saw the secret terror
FZ7a-80.50; E356|        Flame high in pride & laugh to scorn the source of his deceit
FZ7a-80.51; E356|        Nor knew the source of his own but thought himself the Sole author

FZ7a-81.1;   E356|        Of all his wandering Experiments in the horrible Abyss
FZ7a-81.2;   E356|        He knew that weakness stretches out in breadth & length he knew
FZ7a-81.3;   E356|        That wisdom reaches high & deep & therefore he made Orc
FZ7a-81.4;   E356|        In Serpent form compelld stretch out & up the mysterious tree
FZ7a-81.5;   E356|        He sufferd him to Climb that he might draw all human forms
FZ7a-81.6;   E356|        Into submission to his will nor knew the dread result

FZ7a-81.7;   E356|        Los sat in showers of Urizen watching cold Enitharmon   t773
FZ7a-81.8;   E356|        His broodings rush down to his feet producing Eggs that hatching
FZ7a-81.9;   E356|        Burst forth upon the winds above the tree of Mystery
FZ7a-81.10; E356|        Enitharmon lay on his knees. Urizen tracd his Verses

FZ7a-81.13; E357|        Los saw her stretchd the image of death upon his witherd valleys
FZ7a-81.14; E357|        Her Shadow went forth & returnd Now she was pale as Snow
FZ7a-81.15; E357|        When the mountains & hills are coverd over & the paths of Men shut up   t774
FZ7a-81.16; E357|        But when her spirit returnd as ruddy as a morning when
FZ7a-81.17; E357|        The ripe fruit blushes into joy in heavens eternal halls   t775
FZ7a-81.18; E357|        Sorrow shot thro him from his feet it shot up to his head
FZ7a-81.19; E357|        Like a cold night that nips the root & shatters off the leaves   t776
FZ7a-81.20; E357|        Silent he stood oer Enitharmon watching her pale face
FZ7a-81.21; E357|        He spoke not he was Silent till he felt the cold disease
FZ7a-81.22; E357|        Then Los mournd on the dismal wind in his jealous lamentation

FZ7a-81.23; E357|        Why can I not Enjoy thy beauty Lovely Enitharmon
FZ7a-81.24; E357|        When I return from clouds of Grief in the wandring Elements
FZ7a-81.25; E357|        Where thou in thrilling joy in beaming summer loveliness
FZ7a-81.26; E357|        Delectable reposest ruddy in my absence flaming with beauty
FZ7a-81.27; E357|        Cold pale in sorrow at my approach trembling at my terrific

FZ7a-81.29; E357|        How art thou Shrunk thy grapes that burst in summers vast Excess
FZ7a-81.30; E357|        Shut up in little purple covering faintly bud & die
FZ7a-81.31; E357|        Thy olive trees that pourd down oil upon a thousand hills
FZ7a-81.32; E357|        Sickly look forth & scarcely stretch their branches to the plain
FZ7a-81.33; E357|        Thy roses that expanded in the face of glowing morn

FZ7a-82.1;   E357|        Hid in a little silken veil scarce breathe & faintly shine
FZ7a-82.2;   E357|        Thy lilies that gave light what time the morning looked forth
FZ7a-82.3;   E357|        Hid in the Vales faintly lament & no one hears their voice
FZ7a-82.4;   E357|        All things beside the woful Los enjoy the delights of beauty
FZ7a-82.5;   E357|        Once how I sang & calld the beasts & birds to their delights
FZ7a-82.6;   E357|        Nor knew that I alone exempted from the joys of love
FZ7a-82.7;   E357|        Must war with secret monsters of the animating worlds
FZ7a-82.8;   E357|        O that I had not seen the day then should I be at rest
FZ7a-82.9;   E357|        Nor felt the stingings of desire nor longings after life
FZ7a-82.10; E357|        For life is Sweet to Los the wretched to his winged woes
FZ7a-82.11; E357|        Is given a craving cry that they may sit at night on barren rocks
FZ7a-82.12; E357|        And whet their beaks & snuff the air & watch the opening dawn
FZ7a-82.13; E357|        And Shriek till at the smells of blood they stretch their boney wings
FZ7a-82.14; E357|        And cut the winds like arrows shot by troops of Destiny

FZ7a-82.15; E357|        Thus Los lamented in the night unheard by Enitharmon
FZ7a-82.16; E357|        For the Shadow of Enitharmon descended down the tree of Mystery
FZ7a-82.17; E357|        The Spectre saw the Shade Shivering over his gloomy rocks
FZ7a-82.18; E357|        Beneath the tree of Mystery which in the dismal Abyss
FZ7a-82.19; E357|        Began to blossom in fierce pain shooting its writhing buds
FZ7a-82.20; E357|        In throes of birth & now the blossoms falling shining fruit

FZ7a-85.4;   E360|        Conferring times on times among the branches of that Tree

FZ7a-85.5;   E360|        Thus they conferrd among the intoxicating fumes of Mystery
FZ7a-85.6;   E360|        Till Enitharmons shadow pregnant in the deeps beneath
FZ7a-85.7;   E360|        Brought forth a wonder horrible. While Enitharmon shriekd

FZ7a-85.12; E360|        Raving about the upper Elements in maddning fury

FZ7a-85.13; E360|        She burst the Gates of Enitharmons heart with direful Crash
FZ7a-85.14; E360|        Nor could they ever be closd again the golden hinges were broken
FZ7a-85.15; E360|        And the gates broke in sunder & their ornaments defacd   t792
FZ7a-85.16; E360|        Beneath the tree of Mystery for the immortal shadow shuddering
FZ7a-85.17; E360|        Brought forth this wonder horrible a Cloud she grew & grew
FZ7a-85.18; E360|        Till many of the dead burst forth from the bottoms of their tombs

FZ7b-95[2nd].21; E360|        Consuming what must be consumd then in power & majesty
FZ7b-95[2nd].22; E360|        I will walk forth thro those wide fields of endless Eternity

FZ7b-95[2nd].27; E361|        Of dire necessity still laboring day & night till all
FZ7b-95[2nd].28; E361|        Their life extinct they took the spectre form in dark despair
FZ7b-95[2nd].29; E361|        And slaves in myriads in ship loads burden the hoarse sounding deep

FZ7b-95[2nd].31; E361|        And he commanded his Sons found a Center in the Deep
FZ7b-95[2nd].32; E361|        And Urizen laid the first Stone & all his myriads
FZ7b-95[2nd].33; E361|        Builded a temple in the image of the human heart

FZ7b-88.1;   E361|        And in the inner part of the Temple wondrous workmanship
FZ7b-88.2;   E361|        They formd the Secret place reversing all the order of delight
FZ7b-88.3;   E361|        That whosoever enterd into the temple might not behold
FZ7b-88.4;   E361|        The hidden wonders allegoric of the Generations
FZ7b-88.5;   E361|        Of secret lust when hid in chambers dark the nightly harlot
FZ7b-88.6;   E361|        Plays in Disguise in whisperd hymn & mumbling prayer The priests
FZ7b-88.7;   E361|        He ordaind & Priestesses clothd in disguises beastial
FZ7b-88.8;   E361|        Inspiring secrecy & lamps they bore intoxicating fumes
FZ7b-88.9;   E361|        Roll round the Temple & they took the Sun that glowd oer Los
FZ7b-88.10; E361|        And with immense machines down rolling. the terrific orb
FZ7b-88.11; E361|        Compell'd. The Sun reddning like a fierce lion in his chains
FZ7b-88.12; E361|        Descended to the sound of instruments that drownd the noise
FZ7b-88.13; E361|        Of the hoarse wheels & the terrific howlings of wild beasts
FZ7b-88.14; E361|        That dragd the wheels of the Suns chariot & they put the Sun
FZ7b-88.15; E361|        Into the temple of Urizen to give light to the Abyss
FZ7b-88.16; E361|        To light the War by day to hide his secret beams by night
FZ7b-88.17; E361|        For he divided day & night in different orderd portions
FZ7b-88.18; E361|        The day for war the night for secret religion in his temple   t801

FZ7b-88.19; E361|        Los reard his mighty stature on Earth stood his feet. Above   t802
FZ7b-88.20; E361|        The moon his furious forehead circled with black bursting thunders
FZ7b-88.21; E361|        His naked limbs glittring upon the dark blue sky his knees
FZ7b-88.22; E361|        Bathed in bloody clouds. his loins in fires of war where spears
FZ7b-88.23; E361|        And swords rage where the Eagles cry & the Vultures laugh saying
FZ7b-88.24; E361|        Now comes the night of Carnage now the flesh of Kings & Princes
FZ7b-88.25; E361|        Pamperd in palaces for our food the blood of Captains nurturd   t803
FZ7b-88.26; E361|        With lust & murder for our drink the drunken Raven shall wander
FZ7b-88.27; E361|        All night among the slain & mock the wounded that groan in the field

FZ7b-88.28; E361|        Tharmas laughd furious among the Banners clothd in blood

FZ7b-88.29; E361|        Crying As I will I rend the Nations all asunder rending
FZ7b-88.30; E361|        The People, vain their combinations I will scatter them
FZ7b-88.31; E361|        But thou O Son whom I have crowned and inthrond thee Strong
FZ7b-88.32; E361|        I will preserve tho Enemies arise around thee numberless
FZ7b-88.33; E361|        I will command my winds & they shall scatter them or call

FZ7b-89.1;   E361|        My Waters like a flood around thee fear not trust in me
FZ7b-89.2;   E361|        And I will give thee all the ends of heaven for thy possession

FZ7b-89.3;   E362|        In war shalt thou bear rule in blood shalt thou triumph for me
FZ7b-89.4;   E362|        Because in times of Everlasting I was rent in sunder
FZ7b-89.5;   E362|        And what I loved best was divided among my Enemies
FZ7b-89.6;   E362|        My little daughters were made captives & I saw them beaten
FZ7b-89.7;   E362|        With whips along the sultry sands. I heard those whom I lovd   t804
FZ7b-89.8;   E362|        Crying in secret tents at night & in the morn compelld
FZ7b-89.9;   E362|        To labour & behold my heart sunk down beneath
FZ7b-89.10; E362|        In sighs & sobbings all dividing till I was divided   t805
FZ7b-89.11; E362|        In twain & lo my Crystal form that lived in my bosom
FZ7b-89.12; E362|        Followd her daughters to the fields of blood they left me naked
FZ7b-89.13; E362|        Alone & they refusd to return from the fields of the mighty
FZ7b-89.14; E362|        Therefore I will reward them as they have rewarded me
FZ7b-89.15; E362|        I will divide them in my anger & thou O my King
FZ7b-89.16; E362|        Shalt gather them from out their graves & put thy fetter on them
FZ7b-89.17; E362|        And bind them to thee that my crystal form may come to me

FZ7b-89.18; E362|        So cried the Demon of the Waters in the Clouds of Los
FZ7b-89.19; E362|        Outstretchd upon the hills lay Enitharmon clouds & tempests
FZ7b-89.20; E362|        Beat round her head all night all day she riots in Excess
FZ7b-89.21; E362|        But night or day Los follows War & the dismal moon rolls over her   t806
FZ7b-89.22; E362|        That when Los warrd upon the South reflected the fierce fires
FZ7b-89.23; E362|        Of his immortal head into the North upon faint Enitharmon
FZ7b-89.24; E362|        Red rage the furies of fierce Orc black thunders roll round Los
FZ7b-89.25; E362|        Flaming his head like the bright sun seen thro a mist that magnifies
FZ7b-89.26; E362|        His disk into a terrible vision to the Eyes of trembling mortals

FZ7b-89.27; E362|        And Enitharmon trembling & in fear utterd these words

FZ7b-89.28; E362|        I put not any trust in thee nor in thy glittering scales
FZ7b-89.29; E362|        Thy eyelids are a terror to me & the flaming of thy crest
FZ7b-89.30; E362|        The rushing of thy Scales confound me thy hoarse rushing scales
FZ7b-89.31; E362|        And if that Los had not built me a tower upon a rock
FZ7b-89.32; E362|        I must have died in the dark desart among noxious worms
FZ7b-89.33; E362|        How shall I flee how shall I flee into the tower of Los
FZ7b-89.34; E362|        My feet are turned backward & my footsteps slide in clay
FZ7b-89.35; E362|        And clouds are closd around my tower my arms labour in vain
FZ7b-89.36; E362|        Does not the God of waters in the wracking Elements
FZ7b-89.37; E362|        Love those who hate rewarding with hate the Loving Soul

FZ7b-90.1;   E362|        And must not I obey the God thou Shadow of Jealousy
FZ7b-90.2;   E362|        I cry the watchman heareth not I pour my voice in roarings
FZ7b-90.3;   E362|        Watchman the night is thick & darkness cheats my rayie sight
FZ7b-90.4;   E362|        Lift up Lift up O Los awake my watchman for he sleepeth
FZ7b-90.5;   E362|        Lift up Lift up Shine forth O Light watchman thy light is out
FZ7b-90.6;   E362|        O Los unless thou keep my tower the Watchman will be slain

FZ7b-90.7;   E362|        So Enitharmon cried upon her terrible Earthy bed
FZ7b-90.8;   E362|        While the broad Oak wreathd his roots round her forcing his dark way

FZ7b-90.9;   E363|        Thro caves of death into Existence The Beech long limbd advancd
FZ7b-90.10; E363|        Terrific into the paind heavens The fruit trees humanizing
FZ7b-90.11; E363|        Shewd their immortal energies in warlike desperation
FZ7b-90.12; E363|        Rending the heavens & earths & drinking blood in the hot battle
FZ7b-90.13; E363|        To feed their fruit to gratify their hidden sons & daughters
FZ7b-90.14; E363|        That far within the close recesses of their secret palaces
FZ7b-90.15; E363|        Viewd the vast war & joyd wishing to vegetate
FZ7b-90.16; E363|        Into the Worlds of Enitharmon Loud the roaring winds
FZ7b-90.17; E363|        Burdend with clouds howl round the Couch sullen the wooly sheep
FZ7b-90.18; E363|        Walks thro the battle Dark & fierce the Bull his rage
FZ7b-90.19; E363|        Propagates thro the warring Earth The Lion raging in flames   t807
FZ7b-90.20; E363|        The Tyger in redounding smoke The Serpent of the woods   t808
FZ7b-90.21; E363|        And of the waters & the scorpion of the desart irritate
FZ7b-90.22; E363|        With harsh songs every living soul. The Prester Serpent runs
FZ7b-90.23; E363|        Along the ranks crying Listen to the Priest of God ye warriors
FZ7b-90.24; E363|        This Cowl upon my head he placd in times of Everlasting
FZ7b-90.25; E363|        And said Go forth & guide my battles. lik the jointed spine
FZ7b-90.26; E363|        Of Man I made thee when I blotted Man from life & light
FZ7b-90.27; E363|        Take thou the seven Diseases of Man store them for times to come
FZ7b-90.28; E363|        In store houses in secret places that I will tell the[e] of
FZ7b-90.29; E363|        To be my great & awful curses at the time appointed

FZ7b-90.30; E363|        The Prester Serpent ceasd the War song sounded loud & strong
FZ7b-90.31; E363|        Thro all the heavens Urizens Web vibrated torment on torment   t809

FZ7b-91[2nd].1;   E363|        Thus in the Caverns of the Grave & Places of human seed   t811
FZ7b-91[2nd].2;   E363|        The nameless shadowy Vortex stood before the face of Orc
FZ7b-91[2nd].3;   E363|        The Shadow reard her dismal head over the flaming youth
FZ7b-91[2nd].4;   E363|        With sighs & howling & deep sobs that he might lose his rage
FZ7b-91[2nd].5;   E363|        And with it lose himself in meekness she embracd his fire
FZ7b-91[2nd].6;   E363|        As when the Earthquake rouzes from his den his shoulders huge
FZ7b-91[2nd].7;   E363|        Appear above the crumb[l]ing Mountain. Silence waits around him
FZ7b-91[2nd].8;   E363|        A moment then astounding horror belches from the Center
FZ7b-91[2nd].9;   E363|        The fiery dogs arise the shoulders huge appear
FZ7b-91[2nd].10; E363|        So Orc rolld round his clouds upon the deeps of dark Urthona
FZ7b-91[2nd].11; E363|        Knowing the arts of Urizen were Pity & Meek affection   t812
FZ7b-91[2nd].12; E363|        And that by these arts the Serpent form exuded from his limbs
FZ7b-91[2nd].13; E363|        Silent as despairing love & strong as Jealousy
FZ7b-91[2nd].14; E363|        Jealous that she was Vala now become Urizens harlot
FZ7b-91[2nd].15; E363|        And the Harlot of Los & the deluded harlot of the Kings of Earth
FZ7b-91[2nd].16; E363|        His soul was gnawn in sunder
FZ7b-91[2nd].17; E363|        The hairy shoulders rend the links free are the wrists of fire
FZ7b-91[2nd].18; E363|        Red rage redounds he rouzd his lions from his forests black
FZ7b-91[2nd].19; E363|        They howl around the flaming youth rending the nameless shadow
FZ7b-91[2nd].20; E363|        And running their immortal course thro solid darkness borne

FZ7b-91[2nd].21; E364|        Loud sounds the war song round red Orc in his [?triumphant] fury   t813
FZ7b-91[2nd].22; E364|        And round the nameless shadowy Female in her howling terror
FZ7b-91[2nd].23; E364|        When all the Elemental Gods joind in the wondrous Song

FZ7b-91[2nd].24; E364|        Sound the War trumpet terrific Souls clad in attractive steel
FZ7b-91[2nd].25; E364|        Sound the shrill fife serpents of war. I hear the northern drum
FZ7b-91[2nd].26; E364|        Awake, I hear the flappings of the folding banners

FZ7b-91[2nd].27; E364|        The dragons of the North put on their armour
FZ7b-91[2nd].28; E364|        Upon the Eastern sea direct they take their course
FZ7b-91[2nd].29; E364|        The glittring of their horses trapping stains the vault of night

FZ7b-91[2nd].30; E364|        Stop we the rising of the glorious King. spur spur your clouds   t814

FZ7b-92.3;   E364|        With darts of wintry hail. Again the black bow draw
FZ7b-92.4;   E364|        Again the Elemental Strings to your right breasts draw
FZ7b-92.5;   E364|        And let the thundring drum speed on the arrows black

FZ7b-92.6;   E364|        The arrows flew from cloudy bow all day. till blood
FZ7b-92.7;   E364|        From east to west flowd like the human veins in rivers
FZ7b-92.8;   E364|        Of life upon the plains of death & valleys of despair

FZ7b-92.9;   E364|        Now sound the clarions of Victory now strip the slain
FZ7b-92.10; E364|        clothe yourselves in golden arms brothers of war   t815

FZ7b-92.13; E364|        They vote the death of Luvah & they naild him to the tree
FZ7b-92.14; E364|        They piercd him with a spear & laid him in a sepulcher
FZ7b-92.15; E364|        To die a death of Six thousand years bound round with desolation
FZ7b-92.16; E364|        The sun was black & the moon rolld a useless globe thro heaven

FZ7b-92.17; E364|        Then left the Sons of Urizen the plow & harrow the loom
FZ7b-92.18; E364|        The hammer & the Chisel & the rule & compasses
FZ7b-92.19; E364|        They forgd the sword the chariot of war the battle ax
FZ7b-92.20; E364|        The trumpet fitted to the battle & the flute of summer
FZ7b-92.21; E364|        And all the arts of life they changd into the arts of death
FZ7b-92.22; E364|        The hour glass contemnd because its simple workmanship
FZ7b-92.23; E364|        Was as the workmanship of the plowman & the water wheel
FZ7b-92.24; E364|        That raises water into Cisterns broken & burnd in fire
FZ7b-92.25; E364|        Because its workmanship was like the workmanship of the Shepherd
FZ7b-92.26; E364|        And in their stead intricate wheels invented Wheel without wheel
FZ7b-92.27; E364|        To perplex youth in their outgoings & to bind to labours
FZ7b-92.28; E364|        Of day & night the myriads of Eternity. that they might file
FZ7b-92.29; E364|        And polish brass & iron hour after hour laborious workmanship
FZ7b-92.30; E364|        Kept ignorant of the use that they might spend the days of wisdom
FZ7b-92.31; E364|        In sorrowful drudgery to obtain a scanty pittance of bread
FZ7b-92.32; E364|        In ignorance to view a small portion & think that All
FZ7b-92.33; E364|        And call it Demonstration blind to all the simple rules of life

FZ7b-92.34; E365|        Now now the Battle rages round thy tender limbs O Vala
FZ7b-92.35; E365|        Now smile among thy bitter tears now put on all thy beauty
FZ7b-92.36; E365|        Is not the wound of the sword Sweet & the broken bone delightful
FZ7b-92.37; E365|        Wilt thou now smile among the slain when the wounded groan in the field

FZ7b-93.1;   E365|        Life up thy blue eyes Vala & put on thy sapphire shoes

FZ7b-93.5;   E365|        Shake off the waters from thy wings & the dust from thy white garments

FZ7b-93.6;   E365|        Remember all thy feigned terrors on the secret Couch
FZ7b-93.7;   E365|        When the sun rose in glowing morn with arms of mighty hosts
FZ7b-93.8;   E365|        Marching to battle who was wont to rise with Urizens harps   t817
FZ7b-93.9;   E365|        Girt as a Sower with his seed to scatter life abroad

FZ7b-93.10; E365|        Arise O Vala bring the bow of Urizen bring the sift arrows of light
FZ7b-93.11; E365|        How ragd the golden horses of Urizen bound to the chariot of Love
FZ7b-93.12; E365|        Compelld to leave the plow to the Ox to snuff up the winds of desolation
FZ7b-93.13; E365|        To trample the corn fields in boastful neighings. this is no gentle harp
FZ7b-93.14; E365|        This is no warbling brook nor Shadow of a Myrtle tree

FZ7b-93.15; E365|        But blood & wounds & dismal cries & clarions of war
FZ7b-93.16; E365|        And hearts laid open to the light by the broad grizly sword
FZ7b-93.17; E365|        And bowels hidden in hammerd steel rippd forth upon the Ground   t818
FZ7b-93.18; E365|        Call forth thy Smiles of soft deceit call forth thy cloudy tears
FZ7b-93.19; E365|        We hear thy sighs in trumpets shrill when Morn shall blood renew   t819

FZ7b-93.20; E365|        So sung the demons of the deep the Clarions of war blew loud   t820
FZ7b-93.21; E365|        Orc rent her & his human form consumd in his own fires
FZ7b-93.22; E365|        Mingled with her dolorous members strewn thro the Abyss
FZ7b-93.23; E365|        She joyd in all the Conflict Gratified & drinking tears of woe
FZ7b-93.24; E365|        No more remaind of Orc but the Serpent round the tree of Mystery
FZ7b-93.25; E365|        The form of Orc was gone he reard his serpent bulk among
FZ7b-93.26; E365|        The stars of Urizen in Power rending the form of life   t821
FZ7b-93.27; E365|        Into a formless indefinite & strewing her on the Abyss
FZ7b-93.28; E365|        Like clouds upon the winter sky broken with winds & thunders
FZ7b-93.29; E365|        This was to her Supreme delight The Warriors mournd disappointed
FZ7b-93.30; E365|        They go out to war with Strong Shouts & loud Clarions O Pity
FZ7b-93.31; E365|        They return with lamentations mourning & weeping

FZ7b-93.32; E365|        Invisible or visible drawn out in length or stretchd in breadth
FZ7b-93.33; E365|        The Shadowy Female varied in the War in her delight
FZ7b-93.34; E365|        Howling in discontent black & heavy uttering brute sounds
FZ7b-93.35; E365|        Wading thro fens among the slimy weeds making Lamentations
FZ7b-93.36; E365|        To decieve Tharmas in his rage to soothe his furious soul

FZ7b-93.37; E366|        To stay him in his flight that Urizen might live tho in pain
FZ7b-93.38; E366|        He said Art thou bright Enion is the Shadow of hope returnd

FZ7b-93.39; E366|        And She said Tharmas I am Vala bless thy innocent face
FZ7b-93.40; E366|        Doth Enion avoid the sight of thy blue watry eyes
FZ7b-93.41; E366|        Be not perswaded that the air knows this or the failing dew

FZ7b-93.42; E366|        Tharmas replid O Vala once I livd in a garden of delight

FZ7b-94.1;   E366|        I wakend Enion in the Morning & she turnd away
FZ7b-94.2;   E366|        Among the apple trees & all the gardens of delight
FZ7b-94.3;   E366|        Swam like a dream before my eyes I went to seek the steps
FZ7b-94.4;   E366|        Of Enion in the gardens & the shadows compassd me
FZ7b-94.5;   E366|        And closd me in a watry world of woe where Enion stood
FZ7b-94.6;   E366|        Trembling before me like a shadow like a mist like air
FZ7b-94.7;   E366|        And she is gone & here alone I war with darkness & death
FZ7b-94.8;   E366|        I hear thy voice but not thy form see. thou & all delight
FZ7b-94.9;   E366|        And life appear & vanish mocking me with shadows of false hope
FZ7b-94.10; E366|        Hast thou forgot that the air listens thro all its districts telling
FZ7b-94.11; E366|        The subtlest thoughts shut up from light in chambers of the Moon

FZ7b-94.12; E366|        Tharmas. The Moon has chambers where the babes of love lie hid
FZ7b-94.13; E366|        And whence they never can be brought in all Eternity
FZ7b-94.14; E366|        Unless exposd by their vain parents. Lo him whom I love
FZ7b-94.15; E366|        Is hidden from me & I never in all Eternity
FZ7b-94.16; E366|        Shall see him Enitharmon & Ahania combind with Enion
FZ7b-94.17; E366|        Hid him in that Outrageous form of Orc which torments me for Sin   t822
FZ7b-94.18; E366|        For all my Secret faults which he brings forth upon the light
FZ7b-94.19; E366|        Of day in jealousy & blood my Children are led to Urizens war
FZ7b-94.20; E366|        Before my eyes & for every one of these I am condemnd
FZ7b-94.21; E366|        To Eternal torment in these flames for tho I have the power
FZ7b-94.22; E366|        To rise on high Yet love here binds me down & never never
FZ7b-94.23; E366|        Will I arise till him I love is loosd from this dark chain

FZ7b-94.24; E366|        Tharmas replied Vala thy Sins have lost us heaven & bliss
FZ7b-94.25; E366|        Thou art our Curse and till I can bring love into the light   t823
FZ7b-94.26; E366|        I never will depart from my great wrath

FZ7b-94.27; E366|        So Tharmas waild wrathful then rode upon the Stormy Deep   t824
FZ7b-94.28; E366|        Cursing the Voice that mockd him with false hope in furious mood
FZ7b-94.29; E366|        Then She returns swift as a blight upon the infant bud
FZ7b-94.30; E366|        Howling in all the notes of woe to stay his furious rage
FZ7b-94.31; E366|        Stamping the hills wading or swimming flying furious or falling
FZ7b-94.32; E366|        Or like an Earthquake rumbling in the bowels of the earth
FZ7b-94.33; E366|        Or like a cloud beneath & like a fire flaming in high
FZ7b-94.34; E366|        Walking in pleasure of the hills or murmuring in the dales
FZ7b-94.35; E366|        Like to a rushing torrent beneath & a falling rock above
FZ7b-94.36; E366|        A thunder cloud in the south & a lulling voice heard in the north

FZ7b-94.37; E367|        And she went forth & saw the forms of Life & of delight
FZ7b-94.38; E367|        Walking on Mountains or flying in the open expanse of heaven
FZ7b-94.39; E367|        She heard sweet voices in the winds & in the voices of birds
FZ7b-94.40; E367|        That rose from waters for the waters were as the voice of Luvah
FZ7b-94.41; E367|        Not seen to her like waters or like this dark world of death
FZ7b-94.42; E367|        Tho all those fair perfections which men know only by name
FZ7b-94.43; E367|        In beautiful substantial forms appeard & served her
FZ7b-94.44; E367|        As food or drink or ornament or in delightful works
FZ7b-94.45; E367|        To build her bowers for the Elements brought forth abundantly
FZ7b-94.46; E367|        The living soul in glorious forms & every One came forth
FZ7b-94.47; E367|        Walking before her Shadowy face & bowing at her feet
FZ7b-94.48; E367|        But in vain delights were poured forth on the howling melancholy
FZ7b-94.49; E367|        For her delight the horse his proud neck bowd & his white mane
FZ7b-94.50; E367|        And the Strong Lion deignd in his mouth to wear the golden bit
FZ7b-94.51; E367|        While the far beaming Peacock waited on the fragrant wind
FZ7b-94.52; E367|        To bring her fruits of sweet delight from trees of richest wonders
FZ7b-94.53; E367|        And the strong piniond Eagle bore the fire of heaven in the night season
FZ7b-94.54; E367|        Wood & subdud into Eternal Death the Demon Lay
FZ7b-94.55; E367|        In rage against the dark despair. the howling Melancholy   t825
FZ7b-87[95][1st].1;   E367|        For far & wide she stretchd thro all the worlds of Urizens journey
FZ7b-87[95][1st].2;   E367|        And was Ajoind to Beulah as the Polypus to the Rock
FZ7b-87[95][1st].3;   E367|        Mo[u]rning the daughters of Beulah saw nor could they have sustaind
FZ7b-87[95][1st].4;   E367|        The horrid sight of death & torment But the Eternal Promise
FZ7b-87[95][1st].5;   E367|        They wrote on all their tombs & pillars & on every Urn
FZ7b-87[95][1st].6;   E367|        These words If ye will believe your B[r]other shall rise again
FZ7b-87[95][1st].7;   E367|        In golden letters ornamented with sweet labours of Love
FZ7b-87[95][1st].8;   E367|        Waiting with Patience for the fulfilment of the Promise Divine   t826

FZ7b-87[95][1st].9;   E367|        And all the Songs of Beulah sounded comfortable notes
FZ7b-87[95][1st].10; E367|        Not suffring doubt to rise up from the Clouds of the Shadowy Female
FZ7b-87[95][1st].11; E367|        Then myriads of the Dead burst thro the bottoms of their tombs
FZ7b-87[95][1st].12; E367|        Descending on the shadowy females clouds in Spectrous terror
FZ7b-87[95][1st].13; E367|        Beyond the Limit of Translucence on the Lake of Udan Adan
FZ7b-87[95][1st].14; E367|        These they namd Satans & in the Aggregate they namd them Satan

FZ7b-95[85][2nd].23; E367|        Then took the tree of Mystery root in the World of Los
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].24; E367|        Its topmost boughs shooting a fibre beneath Enitharmons couch   t827
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].25; E367|        The double rooted Labyrinth soon wavd around their heads

FZ7b-95[85][2nd].26; E367|        But then the Spectre enterd Los's bosom Every sigh & groan   t828
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].27; E367|        Of Enitharmon bore Urthonas Spectre on its wings
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].28; E367|        Obdurate Los felt Pity Enitharmon told the tale
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].29; E367|        Of Urthona. Los embracd the Spectre first as a brother
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].30; E367|        Then as another Self; astonishd humanizing & in tears
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].31; E367|        In Self abasement Giving up his Domineering lust

FZ7b-95[85][2nd].32; E368|        Thou never canst embrace sweet Enitharmon terrible Demon. Till
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].33; E368|        Thou art united with thy Spectre Consummating by pains & labours <pine
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].34; E368|        That mortal body & by Self annihilation back returning   t830
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].35; E368|        To Life Eternal be assurd I am thy real Self
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].36; E368|        Tho thus divided from thee & the Slave of Every passion
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].37; E368|        Of thy fierce Soul Unbar the Gates of Memory look upon me   t831
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].38; E368|        Not as another but as thy real Self I am thy Spectre
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].39; E368|        Thou didst subdue me in old times by thy Immortal Strength   t832
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].40; E368|        When I was a ravning hungring & thirsting cruel lust & murder
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].41; E368|        Tho horrible & Ghastly to thine Eyes tho buried beneath   t833
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].42; E368|        The ruins of the Universe. hear what inspird I speak & be silent

FZ7b-95[85][2nd].43; E368|        If we unite in one[,] another better world will be   t834
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].44; E368|        Opend within your heart & loins & wondrous brain
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].45; E368|        Threefold as it was in Eternity & this the fourth Universe
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].46; E368|        Will be Renewd by the three & consummated in Mental fires
FZ7b-95[85][2nd].47; E368|        But if thou dost refuse Another body will be prepared

FZ7a-86.1;   E368|        For me & thou annihilate evaporate & be no more
FZ7a-86.2;   E368|        For thou art but a form & organ of life & of thyself
FZ7a-86.3;   E368|        Art nothing being Created Continually by Mercy & Love divine

FZ7a-86.4;   E368|        Los furious answerd. Spectre horrible thy words astound my Ear
FZ7a-86.5;   E368|        With irresistible conviction I feel I am not one of those
FZ7a-86.6;   E368|        Who when convincd can still persist. tho furious.controllable
FZ7a-86.7;   E368|        By Reasons power. Even I already feel a World within
FZ7a-86.8;   E368|        Opening its gates & in it all the real substances
FZ7a-86.9;   E368|        Of which these in the outward World are shadows which pass away
FZ7a-86.10; E368|        Come then into my Bosom & in thy shadowy arms bring with thee
FZ7a-86.11; E368|        My lovely Enitharmon. I will quell my fury & teach
FZ7a-86.12; E368|        Peace to the Soul of dark revenge & repentance to Cruelty

FZ7a-86.13; E368|        So spoke Los & Embracing Enitharmon & the Spectre
FZ7a-86.14; E368|        Clouds would have folded round in Extacy & Love uniting

FZ7a-87.1;   E368|        But Enitharmon trembling fled & hid beneath Urizens tree
FZ7a-87.2;   E368|        But mingling together with his Spectre the Spectre of Urthona   t835
FZ7a-87.3;   E368|        Wondering beheld the Center opend by Divine Mercy inspired   t836
FZ7a-87.4;   E368|        He in his turn Gave Tasks to Los Enormous to destroy   t837
FZ7a-87.5;   E368|        That body he created but in vain for Los performd Wonders of labour
FZ7a-87.6;   E368|        They Builded Golgonooza Los labouring builded pillars high   t838
FZ7a-87.7;   E368|        And Domes terrific in the nether heavens for beneath
FZ7a-87.8;   E368|        Was opend new heavens & a new Earth beneath & within
FZ7a-87.9;   E368|        Threefold within the brain within the heart within the loins
FZ7a-87.10; E368|        A Threefold Atmosphere Sublime continuous from Urthonas world   t839
FZ7a-87.11; E368|        But yet having a Limit Twofold named Satan & Adam

FZ7a-87.12; E369|        But Los stood on the Limit of Translucence weeping & trembling
FZ7a-87.13; E369|        Filled with doubts in self accusation beheld the fruit   t840
FZ7a-87.14; E369|        Of Urizens Mysterious tree For Enitharmon thus spake

FZ7a-87.15; E369|        When In the Deeps beneath I gatherd of this ruddy fruit
FZ7a-87.16; E369|        It was by that I knew that I had Sinnd & then I knew
FZ7a-87.17; E369|        That without a ransom I could not be savd from Eternal death
FZ7a-87.18; E369|        That Life lives upon Death & by devouring appetite
FZ7a-87.19; E369|        All things subsist on one another thenceforth in Despair
FZ7a-87.20; E369|        I spend my glowing time but thou art strong & mighty
FZ7a-87.21; E369|        To bear this Self conviction take then Eat thou also of
FZ7a-87.22; E369|        The fruit & give me proof of life Eternal or I die

FZ7a-87.23; E369|        Then Los plucked the fruit & Eat & sat down in Despair
FZ7a-87.24; E369|        And must have given himself to death Eternal But
FZ7a-87.25; E369|        Urthonas spectre in part mingling with him comforted him
FZ7a-87.26; E369|        Being a medium between him & Enitharmon But This Union
FZ7a-87.27; E369|        Was not to be Effected without Cares & Sorrows & Troubles
FZ7a-87.28; E369|        Of six thousand Years of self denial and of bitter Contrition   t841
FZ7a-87.29; E369|        Urthonas Spectre terrified beheld the Spectres of the Dead
FZ7a-87.30; E369|        Each Male formd without a counterpart without a concentering vision
FZ7a-87.31; E369|        The Spectre of Urthona wept before Los Saying I am the cause
FZ7a-87.32; E369|        That this dire state commences I began the dreadful state
FZ7a-87.33; E369|        Of Separation & on my dark head the curse & punishment
FZ7a-87.34; E369|        Must fall unless a way be found to Ransom & Redeem   t842

FZ7a-87.35; E369|        But I have thee my [Counterpart Vegetating] miraculous   t843
FZ7a-87.36; E369|        These Spectres have no [Counter(parts)] therefore they ravin
FZ7a-87.37; E369|        Without the food of life Let us Create them Coun[terparts]
FZ7a-87.38; E369|        For without a Created body the Spectre is Eternal Death

FZ7a-87.39; E369|        Los trembling answerd Now I feel the weight of stern repentance
FZ7a-87.40; E369|        Tremble not so my Enitharmon at the awful gates
FZ7a-87.41; E369|        Of thy poor broken Heart I see thee like a shadow withering
FZ7a-87.42; E369|        As on the outside of Existence but look! behold! take comfort!
FZ7a-87.43; E369|        Turn inwardly thine Eyes & there behold the Lamb of God
FZ7a-87.44; E369|        Clothed in Luvahs robes of blood descending to redeem
FZ7a-87.45; E369|        O Spectre of Urthona take comfort O Enitharmon
FZ7a-87.46; E369|        Couldst thou but cease from terror & trembling & affright
FZ7a-87.47; E369|        When I appear before thee in forgiveness of ancient injuries   t844
FZ7a-87.48; E369|        Why shouldst thou remember & be afraid. I surely have died in pain
FZ7a-87.49; E369|        Often enough to convince thy jealousy & fear & terror   t845
FZ7a-87.50; E369|        Come hither be patient let us converse together because
FZ7a-87.51; E369|        I also tremble at myself & at all my former life

FZ7a-87.52; E369|        Enitharmon answerd I behold the Lamb of God descending
FZ7a-87.53; E369|        To Meet these Spectres of the Dead I therefore fear that he

FZ7a-87.54; E370|        Will give us to Eternal Death fit punishment for such
FZ7a-87.55; E370|        Hideous offenders Uttermost extinction in eternal pain
FZ7a-87.56; E370|        An ever dying life of stifling & obstruction shut out
FZ7a-87.57; E370|        Of existence to be a sign & terror to all who behold
FZ7a-87.58; E370|        Lest any should in futurity do as we have done in heaven
FZ7a-87.59; E370|        Such is our state nor will the Son of God redeem us but destroy

FZ7a-98[90].1;   E370|        So Enitharmon spoke trembling & in torrents of tears

FZ7a-98[90].2;   E370|        Los sat in Golgonooza in the Gate of Luban where   t847
FZ7a-98[90].3;   E370|        He had erected many porches where branchd the Mysterious Tree   t848
FZ7a-98[90].4;   E370|        Where the Spectrous dead wail & sighing thus he spoke to Enitharmon

FZ7a-98[90].5;   E370|        Lovely delight of Men Enitharmon shady refuge from furious war   t849
FZ7a-98[90].6;   E370|        Thy bosom translucent is a soft repose for the weeping souls
FZ7a-98[90].7;   E370|        Of those piteous victims of battle there they sleep in happy obscurity
FZ7a-98[90].8;   E370|        They feed upon our life we are their victims. Stern desire
FZ7a-98[90].9;   E370|        I feel to fabricate embodied semblances in which the dead
FZ7a-98[90].10; E370|        May live before us in our palaces & in our gardens of labour   t850
FZ7a-98[90].11; E370|        Which now opend within the Center we behold spread abroad
FZ7a-98[90].12; E370|        To form a world of Sacrifice of brothers & sons & daughters   t851
FZ7a-98[90].13; E370|        To comfort Orc in his dire sufferings[;] look[!] my fires enlume afresh
FZ7a-98[90].14; E370|        Before my face ascending with delight as in ancient times

FZ7a-98[90].15; E370|        Enitharmon spread her beaming locks upon the wind & said
FZ7a-98[90].16; E370|        O Lovely terrible Los wonder of Eternity O Los my defence & guide   t852
FZ7a-98[90].17; E370|        Thy works are all my joy. & in thy fires my soul delights
FZ7a-98[90].18; E370|        If mild they burn in just proportion & in secret night
FZ7a-98[90].19; E370|        And silence build their day in shadow of soft clouds & dews
FZ7a-98[90].20; E370|        Then I can sigh forth on the winds of Golgonooza piteous forms
FZ7a-98[90].21; E370|        That vanish again into my bosom but if thou my Los
FZ7a-98[90].22; E370|        Wilt in sweet moderated fury. fabricate forms sublime   t853
FZ7a-98[90].23; E370|        Such as the piteous spectres may assimilate themselves into
FZ7a-98[90].24; E370|        They shall be ransoms for our Souls that we may live

FZ7a-98[90].25; E370|        So Enitharmon spoke & Los his hands divine inspired began   t854
FZ7a-98[90].26; E370|        To modulate his fires studious the loud roaring flames
FZ7a-98[90].27; E370|        He vanquishd with the strength of Art bending their iron points
FZ7a-98[90].28; E370|        And drawing them forth delighted upon the winds of Golgonooza   t855
FZ7a-98[90].29; E370|        From out the ranks of Urizens war & from the fiery lake
FZ7a-98[90].30; E370|        Of Orc bending down as the binder of the Sheaves follows
FZ7a-98[90].31; E370|        The reaper in both arms embracing the furious raging flames
FZ7a-98[90].32; E370|        Los drew them forth out of the deeps planting his right foot firm
FZ7a-98[90].33; E370|        Upon the Iron crag of Urizen thence springing up aloft
FZ7a-98[90].34; E370|        Into the heavens of Enitharmon in a mighty circle

FZ7a-98[90].35; E370|        And first he drew a line upon the walls of shining heaven
FZ7a-98[90].36; E370|        And Enitharmon tincturd it with beams of blushing love

FZ7a-98[90].37; E371|        It remaind permanent a lovely form inspird divinely human
FZ7a-98[90].38; E371|        Dividing into just proportions Los unwearied labourd
FZ7a-98[90].39; E371|        The immortal lines upon the heavens till with sighs of love
FZ7a-98[90].40; E371|        Sweet Enitharmon mild Entrancd breathd forth upon the wind
FZ7a-98[90].41; E371|        The spectrous dead Weeping the Spectres viewd the immortal works
FZ7a-98[90].42; E371|        Of Los Assimilating to those forms Embodied & Lovely
FZ7a-98[90].43; E371|        In youth & beauty in the arms of Enitharmon mild reposing

FZ7a-98[90].44; E371|        First Rintrah & then Palamabron drawn from out the ranks of war
FZ7a-98[90].45; E371|        In infant innocence reposd on Enitharmons bosom
FZ7a-98[90].46; E371|        Orc was comforted in the deeps his soul revivd in them
FZ7a-98[90].47; E371|        As the Eldest brother is the fathers image So Orc became <856>
FZ7a-98[90].48; E371|        As Los a father to his brethren & he joyd in the dark lake
FZ7a-98[90].49; E371|        Tho bound with chains of Jealousy & in scales of iron & brass

FZ7a-98[90].50; E371|        But Los loved them & refusd to Sacrifice their infant limbs
FZ7a-98[90].51; E371|        And Enitharmons smiles & tears prevaild over self protection
FZ7a-98[90].52; E371|        They rather chose to meet Eternal death than to destroy
FZ7a-98[90].53; E371|        The offspring of their Care & Pity Urthonas spectre was comforted
FZ7a-98[90].54; E371|        But Tharmas most rejoicd in hope of Enions return
FZ7a-98[90].55; E371|        For he beheld new Female forms born forth upon the air
FZ7a-98[90].56; E371|        Who wove soft silken veils of covering in sweet rapturd trance
FZ7a-98[90].57; E371|        Mortal & not as Enitharmon without a covering veil

FZ7a-98[90].58; E371|        First his immortal spirit drew Urizen[s] Shadow away   t857
FZ7a-98[90].59; E371|        From out the ranks of war separating him in sunder
FZ7a-98[90].60; E371|        Leaving his Spectrous form which could not be drawn away
FZ7a-98[90].61; E371|        Then he divided Thiriel the Eldest of Urizens sons
FZ7a-98[90].62; E371|        Urizen became Rintrah Thiriel became Palamabron
FZ7a-98[90].63; E371|        Thus dividing the powers of Every Warrior
FZ7a-98[90].64; E371|        Startled was Los he found his Enemy Urizen now
FZ7a-98[90].65; E371|        In his hands. he wonderd that he felt love & not hate
FZ7a-98[90].66; E371|        His whole soul loved him he beheld him an infant
FZ7a-98[90].67; E371|        Lovely breathd from Enitharmon he trembled within himself

FZ8-99.8;   E372|        Toward the East one standing at his head toward the west
FZ8-99.9;   E372|        Their wings joind in the Zenith over head   t861
FZ8-99.10; E372|        Such is a Vision of All Beulah hovring over the Sleeper

FZ8-99.11; E372|        The limit of Contraction now was fixd & Man began
FZ8-99.12; E372|        To wake upon the Couch of Death he sneezed seven times
FZ8-99.13; E372|        A tear of blood dropped from either eye again he reposd
FZ8-99.14; E372|        In the saviours arms, in the arms of tender mercy & loving kindness

FZ8-99.15; E372|        Then Los said I behold the Divine Vision thro the broken Gates   t862
FZ8-99.16; E372|        Of thy poor broken heart astonishd melted into Compassion & Love
FZ8-99.17; E372|        And Enitharmon said I see the Lamb of God upon Mount Zion   t863
FZ8-99.18; E372|        Wondring with love & Awe they felt the divine hand upon them   t864

FZ8-99.19; E372|        For nothing could restrain the dead in Beulah from descending
FZ8-99.20; E372|        Unto Ulros night tempted by the Shadowy females sweet
FZ8-99.21; E372|        Delusive cruelty they descend away from the Daughters of Beulah

FZ8-100[1st].13; E372|        They saw the Saviour beyond the Pit of death & destruction
FZ8-100[1st].14; E372|        For whether they lookd upward they saw the Divine Vision
FZ8-100[1st].15; E372|        Or whether they lookd downward still they saw the Divine Vision

FZ8-101[1st].13; E373|        The scaly armour shot out. Stubborn down his back & bosom
FZ8-101[1st].14; E373|        The Emerald Onyx Sapphire jasper beryl amethyst
FZ8-101[1st].15; E373|        Strove in terrific emulation which should gain a place
FZ8-101[1st].16; E373|        Upon the mighty Fiend the fruit of the mysterious tree   t871
FZ8-101[1st].17; E373|        Kneaded in Uveths kneading trough. Still Orc devourd the food

FZ8-101[1st].23; E373|        Compelld by the iron hearted sisters Daughters of Urizen
FZ8-101[1st].24; E373|        Gathring the fruit of that mysterious tree circling its root
FZ8-101[1st].25; E373|        She spread herself thro all the branches in the power of Orc

FZ8-101[1st].26; E373|        Thus Urizen in self deci[e]t his warlike preparations fabricated
FZ8-101[1st].27; E373|        And when all things were finishd sudden wavd among the Stars   t873
FZ8-101[1st].28; E373|        His hurtling hand gave the dire signal thunderous Clarions blow   t874
FZ8-101[1st].29; E373|        And all the hollow deep rebellowd with the wonderous war   t875

FZ8-100[2nd].26; E373|        But Urizen his mighty rage let loose in the mid deep   t876
FZ8-100[2nd].27; E373|        Sparkles of Dire affliction issud round his frozen limbs   t877
FZ8-100[2nd].28; E373|        Horrible hooks & nets he formd twisting the cords of iron

FZ8-100[2nd].30; E373|        Tubes in petrific steel & rammd combustiles & wheels
FZ8-100[2nd].31; E373|        And chains & pullies fabricated all round the heavens of Los
FZ8-100[2nd].32; E373|        Communing with the Serpent of Orc in dark dissimulation

FZ8-100[2nd].33; E374|        And with the Synagogue of Satan in dark Sanhedrim   t878

FZ8-101[2nd].30; E374|        To the four winds hopeless of future. All futurity
FZ8-101[2nd].31; E374|        Seems teeming with Endless Destruction never to be repelld   t879
FZ8-101[2nd].32; E374|        Desperate remorse swallows the present in a quenchless rage

FZ8-101[2nd].33; E374|        Terrified & astonishd Urizen beheld the battle take a form   t880
FZ8-101[2nd].34; E374|        Which he intended not a Shadowy hermaphrodite black & opake   t881
FZ8-101[2nd].35; E374|        The Soldiers namd it Satan but he was yet unformd & vast
FZ8-101[2nd].36; E374|        Hermaphroditic it at length became hiding the Male
FZ8-101[2nd].37; E374|        Within as in a Tabernacle Abominable Deadly

FZ8-101[2nd].39; E374|        Enormous Works Los Contemplated inspird by the holy Spirit
FZ8-101[2nd].40; E374|        Los builds the Walls of Golgonooza against the stirring battle
FZ8-101[2nd].41; E374|        That only thro the Gates of Death they can enter to Enitharmon
FZ8-101[2nd].42; E374|        Raging they take the human visage & the human form

FZ8-101[2nd].43; E374|        Feeling the hand of Los in Golgonooza & the force
FZ8-101[2nd].44; E374|        Attractive of his hammers beating & the Silver looms
FZ8-101[2nd].45; E374|        Of Enitharmon singing lulling cadences on the wind
FZ8-101[2nd].46; E374|        They humanize in the fierce battle where in direful pain
FZ8-101[2nd].47; E374|        Troop by troop the beastial droves rend one another sounding loud
FZ8-101[2nd].48; E374|        The instruments of sound & troop by troop in human forms they urge

FZ8-102.1;   E374|        The dire confusion till the battle faints those that remain

F8-102.4;   E374|        Sound loud the howling music inspird by Los & Enitharmon Sounding loud terrific men
FZ8-102.5;   E374|        They seem to one another laughing terrible among the banners
FZ8-102.6;   E374|        And when the revolution of their day of battles over
FZ8-102.7;   E374|        Relapsing in dire torment they return to forms of woe   t882
FZ8-102.8;   E374|        To moping visages returning inanimate tho furious
FZ8-102.9;   E374|        No more erect tho strong drawn out in length they ravin
FZ8-102.10; E374|        For senseless gratification & their visages thrust forth
FZ8-102.11; E374|        Flatten above & beneath & stretch out into beastial length
FZ8-102.12; E374|        Weakend they stretch beyond their power in dire droves till war begins
FZ8-102.13; E374|        Or Secret religion in their temples before secret shrines

FZ8-102.14; E374|        And Urizen gave life & sense by his immortal power
FZ8-102.15; E374|        To all his Engines of deceit that linked chains might run
FZ8-102.16; E374|        Thro ranks of war spontaneous & that hooks & boring screws
FZ8-102.17; E374|        Might act according to their forms by innate cruelty
FZ8-102.18; E374|        He formed also harsh instruments of sound

FZ8-102.19; E375|        To grate the soul into destruction or to inflame with fury
FZ8-102.20; E375|        The spirits of life to pervert all the faculties of sense
FZ8-102.21; E375|        Into their own destruction if perhaps he might avert   t883
FZ8-102.22; E375|        His own despair even at the cost of every thing that breathes

FZ8-102.23; E375|        Thus in the temple of the Sun his books of iron & brass
FZ8-102.24; E375|        And silver & gold he consecrated reading incessantly
FZ8-102.25; E375|        To myriads of perturbed spirits thro the universe
FZ8-102.26; E375|        They propagated the deadly words the Shadowy Female absorbing   t884
FZ8-102.27; E375|        The enormous Sciences of Urizen ages after ages exploring
FZ8-102.28; E375|        The fell destruction. And she said O Urizen Prince of Light

FZ8-103.2;   E375|        My Eyes to thy Pavilions hear my prayer for Luvahs sake
FZ8-103.3;   E375|        I see the murderer of my Luvah clothd in robes of blood
FZ8-103.4;   E375|        He who assured my Luvahs throne in times of Everlasting
FZ8-103.5;   E375|        Where hast thou hid him whom I love in what remote Abyss
FZ8-103.6;   E375|        Resides that God of my delight O might my eyes behold
FZ8-103.7;   E375|        My Luvah then could I deliver all the sons of God
FZ8-103.8;   E375|        From Bondage of these terrors & with influences sweet   t885
FZ8-103.9;   E375|        As once in those eternal fields in brotherhood & Love
FZ8-103.10; E375|        United we should live in bliss as those who sinned not

FZ8-111[107].20; E382|        And that his wisdom servd but to augment the indefinite lust

FZ8-111[107].22; E382|        Into their limbs Urthona shot forth a Vast Fibrous form

FZ8-111[107].23; E383|        Tharmas like a pillar of sand rolld round by the whirlwind

FZ8-111[107].26; E383|        Into the Abysses of his bosom the vessels of his blood
FZ8-111[107].27; E383|        Dart forth upon the wind in pipes writhing about in the Abyss
FZ8-111[107].28; E383|        And Enitharmon pale & cold in milky juices flowd
FZ8-111[107].29; E383|        Into a form of Vegetation living having a voice
FZ8-111[107].30; E383|        Moving in rootlike fibres trembling in fear upon the Earth

FZ8-111[107].31; E383|        And Tharmas gave his Power to Los Urthona gave his strength
FZ8-111[107].32; E383|        Into the youthful prophet for the Love of Enitharmon
FZ8-111[107].33; E383|        And of the nameless Shadowy female in the nether deep
FZ8-111[107].34; E383|        And for the dread of the dark terrors of Orc & Urizen

FZ8-111[107].35; E383|        Thus in a living Death the nameless shadow all things bound
FZ8-111[107].36; E383|        All mortal things made permanent that they may be put off
FZ8-111[107].37; E383|        Time after time by the Divine Lamb who died for all
FZ8-111[107].38; E383|        And all in him died. & he put off all mortality

FZ8-122[108].1;   E383|        Tharmas on high rode furious thro the afflicted worlds   t953
FZ8-122[108].2;   E383|        Pursuing the Vain Shadow of Hope fleeing from identity
FZ8-122[108].3;   E383|        In abstract false Expanses that he may not hear the Voice
FZ8-122[108].4;   E383|        Of Ahania wailing on the winds in vain he flies for still
FZ8-122[108].5;   E383|        The voice incessant calls on all the children of Men
FZ8-122[108].6;   E383|        For she spoke of all in heaven & all upon the Earth
FZ8-122[108].7;   E383|        Saw not as yet the Divine vision her Eyes are Toward Urizen
FZ8-122[108].8;   E383|        And thus Ahania cries aloud to the Caverns of the Grave

FZ8-122[108].9;   E383|        Will you keep a flock of wolves & lead them will you take the wintry blast
FZ8-122[108].10; E383|        For a covering to your limbs or the summer pestilence for a tent to abide in
FZ8-122[108].11; E383|        Will you erect a lasting habitation in the mouldering Church yard
FZ8-122[108].12; E383|        Or a pillar & palace of Eternity in the jaws of the hungry grave
FZ8-122[108].13; E383|        Will you seek pleasure from the festering wound or marry for a Wife
FZ8-122[108].14; E383|        he ancient Leprosy that the King & Priest may still feast on your decay
FZ8-122[108].15; E383|        And the grave mock & laugh at the plowd field saying
FZ8-122[108].16; E383|        I am the nourisher thou the destroyer in my bosom is milk & wine
FZ8-122[108].17; E383|        And a fountain from my breasts to me come all multitudes
FZ8-122[108].18; E383|        To my breath they obey they worship me I am a goddess & queen
FZ8-122[108].19; E383|        But listen to Ahania O ye sons of the Murderd one
FZ8-122[108].20; E383|        Listen to her whose memory beholds your ancient days
FZ8-122[108].21; E383|        Listen to her whose eyes behold the dark body of corruptible death
FZ8-122[108].22; E383|        Looking for Urizen in vain. in vain I seek for morning
FZ8-122[108].23; E383|        The Eternal Man sleeps in the Earth nor feels the vigrous sun

FZ8-122[108].24; E384|        Nor silent moon nor all the hosts of heaven move in his body
FZ8-122[108].25; E384|        His fiery halls are dark & round his limbs the Serpent Orc
FZ8-122[108].26; E384|        Fold without fold encompasses him And his corrupting members
FZ8-122[108].27; E384|        Vomit out the Scaly monsters of the restless deep
FZ8-122[108].28; E384|        They come up in the rivers & annoy the nether parts
FZ8-122[108].29; E384|        Of Man who lays upon the shores leaning his faded head
FZ8-122[108].30; E384|        Upon the Oozy rock inwrapped with the weeds of death
FZ8-122[108].31; E384|        His eyes sink hollow in his head his flesh coverd with slime
FZ8-122[108].32; E384|        And shrunk up to the bones alas that Man should come to this
FZ8-122[108].33; E384|        His strong bones beat with snows & hid within the caves of night
FZ8-122[108].34; E384|        Marrowless bloodless falling into dust driven by the winds
FZ8-122[108].35; E384|        O how the horrors of Eternal Death take hold on Man
FZ8-122[108].36; E384|        His faint groans shake the caves & issue thro the desolate rocks

FZ8-113[109].1;   E384|        And the Strong Eagle now with num[m]ing cold blighted of feathers
FZ8-113[109].2;   E384|        Once like the pride of the sun now flagging in cold night
FZ8-113[109].3;   E384|        Hovers with blasted wings aloft watching with Eager Eye
FZ8-113[109].4;   E384|        Till Man shall leave a corruptible body he famishd hears him groan
FZ8-113[109].5;   E384|        And now he fixes his strong talons in the pointed rock
FZ8-113[109].6;   E384|        And now he beats the heavy air with his enormous wings
FZ8-113[109].7;   E384|        Beside him lies the Lion dead & in his belly worms
FZ8-113[109].8;   E384|        Feast on his death till universal death devours all
FZ8-113[109].9;   E384|        And the pale horse seeks for the pool to lie him down & die
FZ8-113[109].10; E384|        But finds the pools filled with serpents devouring one another
FZ8-113[109].11; E384|        He droops his head & trembling stands & his bright eyes decay
FZ8-113[109].12; E384|        These are the Visions of My Eyes the Visions of Ahania

FZ8-113[109].13; E384|        Thus cries Ahania Enion replies from the Caverns of the Grave

FZ8-113[109].14; E384|        Fear not O poor forsaken one O land of briars & thorns
FZ8-113[109].15; E384|        Where once the Olive flourishd & the Cedar spread his wings
FZ8-113[109].16; E384|        Once I waild desolate like thee my fallow fields in fear
FZ8-113[109].17; E384|        Cried to the Churchyards & the Earthworm came in dismal state
FZ8-113[109].18; E384|        I found him in my bosom & I said the time of Love
FZ8-113[109].19; E384|        Appears upon the rocks & hills in silent shades but soon
FZ8-113[109].20; E384|        A voice came in the night a midnight cry upon the mountains
FZ8-113[109].21; E384|        Awake the bridegroom cometh I awoke to sleep no more
FZ8-113[109].22; E384|        But an Eternal Consummation is dark Enion
FZ8-113[109].23; E384|        The watry Grave. O thou Corn field O thou Vegetater happy
FZ8-113[109].24; E384|        More happy is the dark consumer hope drowns all my torment
FZ8-113[109].25; E384|        For I am now surrounded by a shadowy vortex drawing
FZ8-113[109].26; E384|        The Spectre quite away from Enion that I die a death
FZ8-113[109].27; E384|        Of bitter hope altho I consume in these raging waters
FZ8-113[109].28; E384|        The furrowd field replies to the grave I hear her reply to me
FZ8-113[109].29; E384|        Behold the time approaches fast that thou shalt be as a thing
FZ8-113[109].30; E384|        Forgotten when one speaks of thee he will not be believd
FZ8-113[109].31; E384|        When the man gently fades away in his immortality

FZ8-113[109].32; E385|        When the mortal disappears in improved knowledge cast away
FZ8-113[109].33; E385|        The former things so shall the Mortal gently fade away
FZ8-113[109].34; E385|        And so become invisible to those who still remain
FZ8-113[109].35; E385|        Listen I will tell thee what is done in the caverns of the grave

FZ8-114[110].1;   E385|        The Lamb of God has rent the Veil of Mystery soon to return
FZ8-114[110].2;   E385|        In Clouds & Fires around the rock & the Mysterious tree
FZ8-114[110].3;   E385|        As the seed waits Eagerly watching for its flower & fruit
FZ8-114[110].4;   E385|        Anxious its little soul looks out into the clear expanse
FZ8-114[110].5;   E385|        To see if hungry winds are abroad with their invisible army
FZ8-114[110].6;   E385|        So Man looks out in tree & herb & fish & bird & beast
FZ8-114[110].7;   E385|        Collecting up the scatterd portions of his immortal body
FZ8-114[110].8;   E385|        Into the Elemental forms of every thing that grows
FZ8-114[110].9;   E385|        He tries the sullen north wind riding on its angry furrows
FZ8-114[110].10; E385|        The sultry south when the sun rises & the angry east
FZ8-114[110].11; E385|        When the sun sets when the clods harden & the cattle stand
FZ8-114[110].12; E385|        Drooping & the birds hide in their silent nests. he stores his thoughts
FZ8-114[110].13; E385|        As in a store house in his memory he regulates the forms

FZ8-114[110].21; E385|        In pain he sighs in pain he labours in his universe
FZ8-114[110].22; E385|        Screaming in birds over the deep & howling in the Wolf
FZ8-114[110].23; E385|        Over the slain & moaning in the cattle & in the winds
FZ8-114[110].24; E385|        And weeping over Orc & Urizen in clouds & flaming fires   t954
FZ8-114[110].25; E385|        And in the cries of birth & in the groans of death his voice
FZ8-114[110].26; E385|        Is heard throughout the Universe whereever a grass grows
FZ8-114[110].27; E385|        Or a leaf buds The Eternal Man is seen is heard is felt
FZ8-114[110].28; E385|        And all his Sorrows till he reassumes his ancient bliss

FZ8-114[110].29; E385|        Such are the words of Ahania & Enion. Los hears & weeps   t955
FZ8-114[110].30; E385|        And Los & Enitharmon took the Body of the Lamb
FZ8-114[110].31; E385|        Down from the Cross & placd it in a Sepulcher which Los had hewn
FZ8-114[110].32; E385|        For himself in the Rock of Eternity trembling & in despair   t956

FZ9-119.23; E388|        Bathing their Limbs in the bright visions of Eternity

FZ9-119.24; E388|        Beyond this Universal Confusion beyond the remotest Pole   t966

FZ9-119.25; E388|        Where their vortexes begin to operate there stands
FZ9-119.26; E388|        A Horrible rock far in the South it was forsaken when
FZ9-119.27; E388|        Urizen gave the horses of Light into the hands of Luvah
FZ9-119.28; E388|        On this rock lay the faded head of the Eternal Man
FZ9-119.29; E388|        Enwrapped round with weeds of death pale cold in sorrow & woe
FZ9-119.30; E388|        He lifts the blue lamps of his Eyes & cries with heavenly voice
FZ9-119.31; E388|        Bowing his head over the consuming Universe he cried

FZ9-119.32; E388|        O weakness & O weariness O war within my members
FZ9-119.33; E388|        My sons exiled from my breast pass to & fro before me

FZ9-119.34; E389|        My birds are silent on my hills flocks die beneath my branches
FZ9-119.35; E389|        My tents are fallen my trumpets & the sweet sounds of my harp
FZ9-119.36; E389|        Is silent on my clouded hills that belch forth storms & fires
FZ9-119.37; E389|        My milk of cows & honey of bees & fruit of golden harvest
FZ9-119.38; E389|        Are gatherd in the scorching heat & in the riving rain
FZ9-119.39; E389|        My robe is turned to confusion & my bright gold to stones
FZ9-119.40; E389|        Where once I sat I weary walk in misery & pain
FZ9-119.41; E389|        For from within my witherd breast grown narrow with my woes   t967
FZ9-119.42; E389|        The Corn is turnd to thistles & the apples into poison
FZ9-119.43; E389|        The birds of song to murderous crows My joys to bitter groans

FZ9-120.1;   E389|        The voices of children in my tents to cries of helpless infants
FZ9-120.2;   E389|        And all exiled from the face of light & shine of morning
FZ9-120.3;   E389|        In this dark world a narrow house I wander up & down
FZ9-120.4;   E389|        I hear Mystery howling in these flames of Consummation
FZ9-120.5;   E389|        When shall the Man of future times become as in days of old
FZ9-120.6;   E389|        O weary life why sit I here & give up all my powers
FZ9-120.7;   E389|        To indolence to the night of death when indolence & mourning
FZ9-120.8;   E389|        Sit hovring over my dark threshold. tho I arise look out
FZ9-120.9;   E389|        And scorn the war within my members yet my heart is weak
FZ9-120.10; E389|        And my head faint Yet will I look again unto the morning
FZ9-120.11; E389|        Whence is this sound of rage of Men drinking each others blood
FZ9-120.12; E389|        Drunk with the smoking gore & red but not with nourishing wine

FZ9-120.13; E389|        The Eternal Man sat on the Rocks & cried with awful voice

FZ9-120.14; E389|        O Prince of Light where art thou I behold thee not as once
FZ9-120.15; E389|        In those Eternal fields in clouds of morning stepping forth
FZ9-120.16; E389|        With harps & songs where bright Ahania sang before thy face
FZ9-120.17; E389|        And all thy sons & daughters gatherd round my ample table
FZ9-120.18; E389|        See you not all this wracking furious confusion
FZ9-120.19; E389|        Come forth from slumbers of thy cold abstraction come forth
FZ9-120.20; E389|        Arise to Eternal births shake off thy cold repose
FZ9-120.21; E389|        Schoolmaster of souls great opposer of change arise
FZ9-120.22; E389|        That the Eternal worlds may see thy face in peace & joy
FZ9-120.23; E389|        That thou dread form of Certainty maist sit in town & village
FZ9-120.24; E389|        While little children play around thy feet in gentle awe
FZ9-120.25; E389|        Fearing thy frown loving thy smile O Urizen Prince of light

FZ9-120.26; E389|        He calld[;] the deep buried his voice & answer none returnd
FZ9-120.27; E389|        Then wrath burst round the Eternal Man was wrath again he cried
FZ9-120.28; E389|        Arise O stony form of death O dragon of the Deeps
FZ9-120.29; E389|        Lie down before my feet O Dragon let Urizen arise
FZ9-120.30; E389|        O how couldst thou deform those beautiful proportions   t968
FZ9-120.31; E389|        Of life & person for as the Person so is his life proportiond   t969
FZ9-120.32; E389|        Let Luvah rage in the dark deep even to Consummation
FZ9-120.33; E389|        For if thou feedest not his rage it will subside in peace

FZ9-120.34; E390|        But if thou darest obstinate refuse my stern behest
FZ9-120.35; E390|        Thy crown & scepter I will sieze & regulate all my members
FZ9-120.36; E390|        In stern severity & cast thee out into the indefinite
FZ9-120.37; E390|        Where nothing lives, there to wander. & if thou returnst weary
FZ9-120.38; E390|        Weeping at the threshold of Existence I will steel my heart
FZ9-120.39; E390|        Against thee to Eternity & never recieve thee more
FZ9-120.40; E390|        Thy self-destroying beast formd Science shall be thy eternal lot
FZ9-120.41; E390|        My anger against thee is greater than against this Luvah
FZ9-120.42; E390|        For war is energy Enslavd but thy religion   t970
FZ9-120.43; E390|        The first author of this war & the distracting of honest minds
FZ9-120.44; E390|        Into confused perturbation & strife & honour & pride
FZ9-120.45; E390|        Is a deceit so detestable that I will cast thee out
FZ9-120.46; E390|        If thou repentest not & leave thee as a rotten branch to be burnd
FZ9-120.47; E390|        With Mystery the Harlot & with Satan for Ever & Ever
FZ9-120.48; E390|        Error can never be redeemd in all Eternity
FZ9-120.49; E390|        But Sin Even Rahab is redeemd in blood & fury & jealousy
FZ9-120.50; E390|        That line of blood that stretchd across the windows of the morning
FZ9-120.51; E390|        Redeemd from Errors power. Wake thou dragon of the Deeps

FZ9-121.1;   E390|        Urizen wept in the dark deep anxious his Scaly form
FZ9-121.2;   E390|        To reassume the human & he wept in the dark deep

F9-121.3;   E390|        Saying O that I had never drank the wine nor eat the bread
FZ9-121.4;   E390|        Of dark mortality nor cast my view into futurity nor turnd   t971
FZ9-121.5;   E390|        My back darkning the present clouding with a cloud
FZ9-121.6;   E390|        And building arches high & cities turrets & towers & domes   t972
FZ9-121.7;   E390|        Whose smoke destroyd the pleasant gardens & whose running Kennels   t973
FZ9-121.8;   E390|        Chokd the bright rivers burdning with my Ships the angry deep
FZ9-121.9;   E390|        Thro Chaos seeking for delight & in spaces remote
FZ9-121.10; E390|        Seeking the Eternal which is always present to the wise
FZ9-121.11; E390|        Seeking for pleasure which unsought falls round the infants path
FZ9-121.12; E390|        And on the fleeces of mild flocks who neither care nor labour
FZ9-121.13; E390|        But I the labourer of ages whose unwearied hands
FZ9-121.14; E390|        Are thus deformd with hardness with the sword & with the spear   t974
FZ9-121.15; E390|        And with the Chisel & the mallet I whose labours vast
FZ9-121.16; E390|        Order the nations separating family by family
FZ9-121.17; E390|        Alone enjoy not I alone in misery supreme
FZ9-121.18; E390|        Ungratified give all my joy unto this Luvah & Vala   t975
FZ9-121.19; E390|        Then Go O dark futurity I will cast thee forth from these   t976
FZ9-121.20; E390|        Heavens of my brain nor will I look upon futurity more   t977
FZ9-121.21; E390|        I cast futurity away & turn my back upon that void   t978
FZ9-121.22; E390|        Which I have made for lo futurity is in this moment  t979
FZ9-121.23; E390|        Let Orc consume let Tharmas rage let dark Urthona give
FZ9-121.24; E390|        All strength to Los & Enitharmon & let Los self-cursd
FZ9-121.25; E390|        Rend down this fabric as a wall ruind & family extinct
FZ9-121.26; E390|        Rage Orc Rage Tharmas Urizen no longer curbs your rage

FZ9-121.27; E391|        So Urizen spoke he shook his snows from off his Shoulders & arose
FZ9-121.28; E391|        As on a Pyramid of mist his white robes scattering
FZ9-121.29; E391|        The fleecy white renewd he shook his aged mantles off
FZ9-121.30; E391|        Into the fires Then glorious bright Exulting in his joy

FZ9-121.35; E391|        On to the surface of a lake. Ahania rose in joy
FZ9-121.36; E391|        Excess of joy is worse than grief--her heart beat high her blood
FZ9-121.37; E391|        Burst its bright Vessels She fell down dead at the feet of Urizen
FZ9-121.38; E391|        Outstretchd a Smiling corse they buried her in a silent cave
FZ9-121.39; E391|        Urizen dropt a tear the Eternal Man Darkend with sorrow

FZ9-123.17; E392|        What flames are these coming from the South what noise what dreadful rout
FZ9-123.18; E392|        As of a battle in the heavens hark heard you not the trumpet
FZ9-123.19; E392|        As of fierce battle while they spoke the flames come on intense roaring

FZ9-123.20; E392|        They see him whom they have piercd they wail because of him

FZ9-123.26; E393|        Perhaps I may be forgiven While he speaks the flames roll on
FZ9-123.27; E393|        And after the flames appears the Cloud of the Son of Man
FZ9-123.28; E393|        Descending from Jerusalem with power and great Glory
FZ9-123.29; E393|        All nations look up to the Cloud & behold him who was Crucified

FZ9-123.39; E393|        Four Starry Universes going forward from Eternity to Eternity
FZ9-123.40; E393|        And the Falln Man who was arisen upon the Rock of Ages

FZ9-124.1;   E393|        Beheld the Vision of God & he arose up from the Rock
FZ9-124.2;   E393|        And Urizen arose up with him walking thro the flames
FZ9-124.3;   E393|        To meet the Lord coming to Judgment but the flames repelld them

FZ9-124.5;   E393|        Together for the Redeemd Man could not enter the Consummation   t992

FZ9-124.6;   E393|        Then siezd the Sons of Urizen the Plow they polishd it
FZ9-124.7;   E393|        From rust of ages all its ornaments of Gold & silver & ivory
FZ9-124.8;   E393|        Reshone across the field immense where all the nations
FZ9-124.9;   E393|        Darkend like Mould in the divided fallows where the weed
FZ9-124.10; E393|        Triumphs in its own destruction they took down the harness

FZ9-124.11; E393|        From the blue walls of heaven starry jingling ornamented
FZ9-124.12; E393|        With beautiful art the study of angels the workmanship of Demons
FZ9-124.13; E393|        When Heaven & Hell in Emulation strove in sports of Glory

FZ9-124.14; E393|        The noise of rural work resounded thro the heavens of heavens
FZ9-124.15; E393|        The horse[s] neigh from the battle the wild bulls from the sultry waste
FZ9-124.16; E393|        The tygers from the forests & the lions from the sandy desarts   t993
FZ9-124.17; E393|        They sing they sieze the instruments of harmony they throw away
FZ9-124.18; E393|        The spear the bow the gun the mortar they level the fortifications   t994
FZ9-124.19; E393|        They bet the iron engines of destruction into wedges
FZ9-124.20; E393|        They give them to Urthonas Sons ringing the hammers sound
FZ9-124.21; E393|        In dens of death to forge the spade the mattock & the ax
FZ9-124.22; E393|        The heavy roller to break the clods to pass over the nations

FZ9-124.23; E393|        The Sons of Urizen Shout Their father rose The Eternal horses
FZ9-124.24; E393|        Harnessd They calld to Urizen the heavens moved at their call
FZ9-124.25; E393|        The limbs of Urizen shone with ardor. He laid his ha[n]d on the Plow   t995

FZ9-124.26; E394|        Thro dismal darkness drave the Plow of ages over Cities
FZ9-124.27; E394|        And all their Villages over Mountains & all their Vallies
FZ9-124.28; E394|        Over the graves & caverns of the dead Over the Planets
FZ9-124.29; E394|        And over the void Spaces over Sun & moon & star & constellation

FZ9-124.30; E394|        Then Urizen commanded & they brought the Seed of Men
FZ9-124.31; E394|        The trembling souls of All the Dead stood before Urizen
FZ9-124.32; E394|        Weak wailing in the troubled air East west & north & south

FZ9-125.1;   E394|        He turnd the horses loose & laid his Plow in the northern corner
FZ9-125.2;   E394|        Of the wide Universal field. then Stepd forth into the immense   t996

FZ9-125.3;   E394|        Then he began to sow the seed he girded round his loins
FZ9-125.4;   E394|        With a bright girdle & his skirt filld with immortal souls
FZ9-125.5;   E394|        Howling & Wailing fly the souls from Urizens strong hand

FZ9-125.6;   E394|        For from the hand of Urizen the myriads fall like stars
FZ9-125.7;   E394|        Into their own appointed places driven back by the winds
FZ9-125.8;   E394|        The naked warriors rush together down to the sea shores
FZ9-125.9;   E394|        They are become like wintry flocks like forests stripd of leaves
FZ9-125.10; E394|        The Kings & Princes of the Earth cry with a feeble cry
FZ9-125.11; E394|        Driven on the unproducing sands & on the hardend rocks
FZ9-125.12; E394|        And all the while the flames of Orc follow the ventrous feet
FZ9-125.13; E394|        Of Urizen & all the while the Trump of Tharmas sounds
FZ9-125.14; E394|        Weeping & wailing fly the souls from Urizens strong hand
FZ9-125.15; E394|        The daughters of Urizen stand with Cups & measures of foaming wine
FZ9-125.16; E394|        Immense upon the heavens with bread & delicate repasts

FZ9-125.17; E394|        Then follows the golden harrow in the midst of Mental fires
FZ9-125.18; E394|        To ravishing melody of flutes & harps & softest voice
FZ9-125.19; E394|        The seed is harrowd in while flames heat the black mould & cause
FZ9-125.20; E394|        The human harvest to begin Towards the south first sprang
FZ9-125.21; E394|        The myriads & in silent fear they look out from their graves

FZ9-125.22; E394|        Then Urizen sits down to rest & all his wearied Sons
FZ9-125.23; E394|        Take their repose on beds they drink they sing they view the flames
FZ9-125.24; E394|        Of Orc in joy they view the human harvest springing up
FZ9-125.25; E394|        A time they give to sweet repose till all the harvest is ripe

FZ9-125.26; E394|        And Lo like the harvest Moon Ahania cast off her death clothes
FZ9-125.27; E394|        She folded them up in care in silence & her brightning limbs
FZ9-125.28; E394|        Bathd in the clear spring of the rock then from her darksom cave
FZ9-125.29; E394|        Issud in majesty divine Urizen rose up from his couch
FZ9-125.30; E394|        On wings of tenfold joy clapping his hands his feet his radiant wings
FZ9-125.31; E394|        In the immense as when the Sun dances upon the mountains
FZ9-125.32; E394|        A shout of jubilee in lovely notes responding from daughter to daughter
FZ9-125.33; E394|        From son to Son as if the Stars beaming innumerable

FZ9-125.34; E395|        Thro night should sing soft warbling filling Earth & heaven
FZ9-125.35; E395|        And bright Ahania took her seat by Urizen in songs & joy

FZ9-125.36; E395|        The Eternal Man also sat down upon the Couches of Beulah
FZ9-125.37; E395|        Sorrowful that he could not put off his new risen body
FZ9-125.38; E395|        In mental flames the flames refusd they drove him back to Beulah
FZ9-125.39; E395|        His body was redeemd to be permanent thro Mercy Divine

FZ9-126.1;   E395|        And now fierce Orc had quite consumd himself in Mental flames
FZ9-126.2;   E395|        Expending all his energy against the fuel of fire
FZ9-126.3;   E395|        The Regenerate Man stoopd his head over the Universe & in   t997
FZ9-126.4;   E395|        His holy hands recied the flaming Demon & Demoness of Smoke
FZ9-126.5;   E395|        And gave them to Urizens hands the Immortal frownd Saying

FZ9-126.6;   E395|        Luvah & Vala henceforth you are Servants obey & live
FZ9-126.7;   E395|        You shall forget your former state return O Love in peace   t998
FZ9-126.8;   E395|        Into your place the place of seed not in the brain or heart
FZ9-126.9;   E395|        If Gods combine against Man Setting their Dominion above
FZ9-126.10; E395|        The Human form Divine. Thrown down from their high Station
FZ9-126.11; E395|        In the Eternal heavens of Human Imagination: buried beneath   t999
FZ9-126.12; E395|        In dark Oblivion with incessant pangs ages on ages
FZ9-126.13; E395|        In Enmity & war first weakend then in stern repentance
FZ9-126.14; E395|        They must renew their brightness & their disorganizd functions
FZ9-126.15; E395|        Again reorganize till they resume the image of the human
FZ9-126.16; E395|        Cooperating in the bliss of Man obeying his Will
FZ9-126.17; E395|        Servants to the infinite & Eternal of the Human form

FZ9-126.18; E395|        Luvah & Vala descended & enterd the Gates of Dark Urthona
FZ9-126.19; E395|        And walkd from the hands of Urizen in the shadows of Valas Garden
FZ9-126.20; E395|        Where the impressions of Despair & Hope for ever vegetate
FZ9-126.21; E395|        In flowers in fruits in fishes birds & beasts & clouds & waters
FZ9-126.22; E395|        The land of doubts & shadows sweet delusions unformd hopes
FZ9-126.23; E395|        They saw no more the terrible confusion of the wracking universe
FZ9-126.24; E395|        They heard not saw not felt not all the terrible confusion
FZ9-126.25; E395|        For in their orbed senses within closd up they wanderd at will
FZ9-126.26; E395|        And those upon the Couches viewd them in the dreams of Beulah
FZ9-126.27; E395|        As they reposd from the terrible wide universal harvest
FZ9-126.28; E395|        Invisible Luvah in bright clouds hoverd over Valas head
FZ9-126.29; E395|        And thus their ancient golden age renewd for Luvah spoke
FZ9-126.30; E395|        With voice mild from his golden Cloud upon the breath of morning

FZ9-126.31; E395|        Come forth O Vala from the grass & from the silent Dew
FZ9-126.32; E395|        Rise from the dews of death for the Eternal Man is Risen

FZ9-126.33; E395|        She rises among flowers & looks toward the Eastern clearness
FZ9-126.34; E395|        She walks yea runs her feet are wingd on the tops of the bending grass
FZ9-126.35; E395|        Her garments rejoice in the vocal wind & her hair glistens with dew

FZ9-126.36; E396|        She answerd thus Whose voice is this in the voice of the nourishing air
FZ9-126.37; E396|        In the spirit of the morning awaking the Soul from its grassy bed

FZ9-127.1;   E396|        Where dost thou dwell for it is thee I seek & but for thee
FZ9-127.2;   E396|        I must have slept Eternally nor have felt the dew of thy morning
FZ9-127.3;   E396|        Look how the opening dawn advances with vocal harmony
FZ9-127.4;   E396|        Look how the beams foreshew the rising of some glorious power
FZ9-127.5;   E396|        The sun is thine he goeth forth in his majestic brightness   t1000
FZ9-127.6;   E396|        O thou creating voice that callest & who shall answer thee

FZ9-127.7;   E396|        Where dost thou flee O fair one where dost thou seek thy happy place

FZ9-127.8;   E396|        To yonder brightness there I haste for sure I came from thence
FZ9-127.9;   E396|        Or I must have slept eternally nor have felt the dew of morning

FZ9-127.10; E396|        Eternally thou must have slept nor have felt the morning dew
FZ9-127.11; E396|        But for yon nourishing sun tis that by which thou art arisen
FZ9-127.12; E396|        The birds adore the sun the beasts rise up & play in his beams
FZ9-127.13; E396|        And every flower & every leaf rejoices in his light
FZ9-127.14; E396|        Then O thou fair one sit thee down for thou art as the grass
FZ9-127.15; E396|        Thou risest in the dew of morning & at night art folded up

FZ9-127.16; E396|        Alas am I but as a flower then will I sit me down
FZ9-127.17; E396|        Then will I weep then Ill complain & sigh for immortality
FZ9-127.18; E396|        And chide my maker thee O Sun that raisedst me to fall

FZ9-127.19; E396|        So saying she sat down & wept beneath the apple trees

FZ9-127.20; E396|        O be thou blotted out thou Sun that raisedst me to trouble
FZ9-127.21; E396|        That gavest me a heart to crave & raisedst me thy phantom
FZ9-127.22; E396|        To feel thy heat & see thy light & wander here alone
FZ9-127.23; E396|        Hopeless if I am like the grass & so shall pass away
FZ9-127.24; E396|        Rise sluggish Soul why sitst thou here why dost thou sit & weep
FZ9-127.25; E396|        Yon Sun shall wax old & decay but thou shalt ever flourish
FZ9-127.26; E396|        The fruit shall ripen & fall down & the flowers consume away
FZ9-127.27; E396|        But thou shalt still survive arise O dry thy dewy tears

FZ9-127.28; E396|        Hah! Shall I still survive whence came that sweet & comforting voice
FZ9-127.29; E396|        And whence that voice of sorrow O sun thou art nothing now to me
FZ9-127.30; E396|        Go on thy course rejoicing & let us both rejoice together
FZ9-127.31; E396|        I walk among his flocks & hear the bleating of his lambs
FZ9-127.32; E396|        O that I could behold his face & follow his pure feet
FZ9-127.33; E396|        I walk by the footsteps of his flocks come hither tender flocks
FZ9-127.34; E396|        Can you converse with a pure Soul that seeketh for her maker
FZ9-127.35; E396|        You answer not then am I set your mistress in this garden
FZ9-127.36; E396|        Ill watch you & attend your footsteps you are not like the birds

FZ9-128.1;   E396|        That Sing & fly in the bright air but you do lick my feet
FZ9-128.2;   E396|        And let me touch your wooly backs follow me as I sing
FZ9-128.3;   E396|        For in my bosom a new song arises to my Lord

FZ9-128.4;   E397|        Rise up O Sun most glorious minister & light of day
FZ9-128.5;   E397|        Flow on ye gentle airs & bear the voice of my rejoicing
FZ9-128.6;   E397|        Wave freshly clear waters flowing around the tender grass
FZ9-128.7;   E397|        And thou sweet smelling ground put forth thy life in fruits & flowers
FZ9-128.8;   E397|        Follow me O my flocks & hear me sing my rapturous Song
FZ9-128.9;   E397|        I will cause my voice to be heard on the clouds that glitter in the sun
FZ9-128.10; E397|        I will call & who shall answer me I will sing who shall reply
FZ9-128.11; E397|        For from my pleasant hills behold the living living springs
FZ9-128.12; E397|        Running among my green pastures delighting among my trees
FZ9-128.13; E397|        I am not here alone my flocks you are my brethren
FZ9-128.14; E397|        And you birds that sing & adorn the sky you are my sisters
FZ9-128.15; E397|        I sing & you reply to my Song I rejoice & you are glad
FZ9-128.16; E397|        Follow he O my flocks we will now descend into the valley
FZ9-128.17; E397|        O how delicious are the grapes flourishing in the Sun
FZ9-128.18; E397|        How clear the spring of the rock running among the golden sand
FZ9-128.19; E397|        How cool the breezes of the vall[e]y & the arms of the branchy trees
FZ9-128.20; E397|        Cover us from the Sun come & let us sit in the Shade
FZ9-128.21; E397|        My Luvah here hath placd me in a Sweet & pleasant Land
FZ9-128.22; E397|        And given me fruits & pleasant waters & warm hills & cool valleys
FZ9-128.23; E397|        Here will I build myself a house & here Ill call on his name
FZ9-128.24; E397|        Here Ill return when I am weary & take my pleasant rest

FZ9-128.25; E397|        So spoke the Sinless Soul & laid her head on the downy fleece
FZ9-128.26; E397|        Of a curld Ram who stretchd himself in sleep beside his mistress
FZ9-128.27; E397|        And soft sleep fell upon her eyelids in the silent noon of day

FZ9-128.28; E397|        Then Luvah passed by & saw the sinless Soul
FZ9-128.29; E397|        And said Let a pleasant house arise to be the dwelling place
FZ9-128.30; E397|        Of this immortal Spirit growing in lower Paradise

FZ9-128.31; E397|        He spoke & pillars were builded & walls as white as ivory
FZ9-128.32; E397|        The grass she slept upon was pavd with pavement as of pearl
FZ9-128.33; E397|        Beneath her rose a downy bed & a cieling coverd all

FZ9-128.34; E397|        Vala awoke. When in the pleasant gates of sleep I enterd
FZ9-128.35; E397|        I saw my Luvah like a spirit stand in the bright air
FZ9-128.36; E397|        Round him stood spirits like me who reard me a bright house
FZ9-128.37; E397|        And here I see thee house remain in my most pleasant world

FZ9-129.1;   E397|        My Luvah smild I kneeled down he laid his hand on my head
FZ9-129.2;   E397|        And when he laid his hand upon me from the gates of sleep I came
FZ9-129.3;   E397|        Into this bodily house to tend my flocks in my pleasant garden

FZ9-129.4;   E397|        So saying she arose & walked round her beautiful house
FZ9-129.5;   E397|        And then from her white door she lookd to see her bleating lambs
FZ9-129.6;   E397|        But her flocks were gone up from beneath the trees into the hills

FZ9-129.7;   E397|        I see the hand that leadeth me doth also lead my flocks
FZ9-129.8;   E397|        She went up to her flocks & turned oft to see her shining house
FZ9-129.9;   E397|        She stopd to drink of the clear spring & eat the grapes & apples

FZ9-129.10; E398|        She bore the fruits in her lap she gatherd flowers for her bosom
FZ9-129.11; E398|        She called to her flocks saying follow me O my flocks

FZ9-129.12; E398|        They followd her to the silent vall[e]y beneath the spreading trees
FZ9-129.13; E398|        And on the rivers margin she ungirded her golden girdle
FZ9-129.14; E398|        She stood in the river & viewd herself within the watry glass
FZ9-129.15; E398|        And her bright hair was wet with the waters She rose up from the river
FZ9-129.16; E398|        And as she rose her Eyes were opend to the world of waters
FZ9-129.17; E398|        She saw Tharmas sitting upon the rocks beside the wavy sea
FZ9-129.18; E398|        He strokd the water from his beard & mournd faint thro the summer vales

FZ9-129.19; E398|        And Vala stood on the rocks of Tharmas & heard his mournful voice

FZ9-129.20; E398|        O Enion my weary head is in the bed of death
FZ9-129.21; E398|        For weeds of death have wrapd around my limbs in the hoary deeps
FZ9-129.22; E398|        I sit in the place of shells & mourn & thou art closd in clouds
FZ9-129.23; E398|        When will the time of Clouds be past & the dismal night of Tharmas
FZ9-129.24; E398|        Arise O Enion Arise & smile upon my head   t1001
FZ9-129.25; E398|        As thou dost smile upon the barren mountains and they rejoice
FZ9-129.26; E398|        When wilt thou smile on Tharmas O thou bringer of golden day
FZ9-129.27; E398|        Arise O Enion arise for Lo I have calmd my seas

FZ9-129.28; E398|        So saying his faint head he laid upon the Oozy rock
FZ9-129.29; E398|        And darkness coverd all the deep the light of Enion faded
FZ9-129.30; E398|        Like a fa[i]nt flame quivering upon the surface of the darkness

FZ9-129.31; E398|        Then Vala lifted up her hands to heaven to call on Enion
FZ9-129.32; E398|        She calld but none could answer her & the Eccho of her voice returnd

FZ9-129.33; E398|        Where is the voice of God that calld me from the silent dew
FZ9-129.34; E398|        Where is the Lord of Vala dost thou hide in clefts of the rock
FZ9-129.35; E398|        Why shouldst thou hide thyself from Vala from the soul that wanders desolate

FZ9-129.36; E398|        She ceas'd & light beamd round her like the glory of the morning

FZ9-130.1;   E398|        And She arose out of the river & girded on her golden girdle

FZ9-130.2;   E398|        And now her feet step on the grassy bosom of the ground
FZ9-130.3;   E398|        Among her flocks & she turnd her eyes toward her pleasant house
FZ9-130.4;   E398|        And saw in the door way beneath the trees two little children playing
FZ9-130.5;   E398|        She drew near to her house & her flocks followd her footsteps
FZ9-130.6;   E398|        The Children clung around her knees she embracd them & wept over them

FZ9-130.7;   E398|        Thou little Boy art Tharmas & thou bright Girl Enion
FZ9-130.8;   E398|        How are ye thus renewd & brought into the Gardens of Vala

FZ9-130.9;   E398|        She embracd them in tears. till the sun descended the western hills
FZ9-130.10; E398|        And then she enterd her bright house leading her mighty children

FZ9-130.11; E399|        And when night came the flocks laid round the house beneath the trees
FZ9-130.12; E399|        She laid the Children on the beds which she saw prepard in the house
FZ9-130.13; E399|        Then last herself laid down & closd her Eyelids in soft slumbers

FZ9-130.14; E399|        And in the morning when the Sun arose in the crystal sky
FZ9-130.15; E399|        Vala awoke & calld the children from their gentle slumbers

FZ9-130.16; E399|        Awake O Enion awake & let thine innocent Eyes
FZ9-130.17; E399|        Enlighten all the Crystal house of Vala awake awake
FZ9-130.18; E399|        Awake Tharmas awake awake thou child of dewy tears
FZ9-130.19; E399|        Open the orbs of thy blue eyes & smile upon my gardens

FZ9-130.20; E399|        The Children woke & smild on Vala. she kneeld by the golden couch
FZ9-130.21; E399|        She presd them to her bosom & her pearly tears dropd down
FZ9-130.22; E399|        O my sweet Children Enion let Tharmas kiss thy Cheek
FZ9-130.23; E399|        Why dost thou turn thyself away from his sweet watry eyes
FZ9-130.24; E399|        Tharmas henceforth in Valas bosom thou shalt find sweet peace
FZ9-130.25; E399|        O bless the lovely eyes of Tharmas & the Eyes of Enion

FZ9-130.26; E399|        They rose they went out wandring sometimes together sometimes alone

FZ9-13.27; E399|        Why weepest thou Tharmas Child of tears in the bright house of joy
FZ9-130.28; E399|        Doth Enion avoid the sight of thy blue heavenly Eyes
FZ9-130.29; E399|        And dost thou wander with my lambs & wet their innocent faces   t1002
FZ9-130.30; E399|        With thy bright tears because the steps of Enion are in the gardens
FZ9-130.31; E399|        Arise sweet boy & let us follow the path of Enion

FZ9-130.32; E399|        So saying they went down into the garden among the fruits
FZ9-130.33; E399|        And Enion sang among the flowers that grew among the trees
FZ9-130.34; E399|        And Vala said Go Tharmas weep not Go to Enion

FZ9-131.1;   E399|        He said O Vala I am sick & all this garden of Pleasure
FZ9-131.2;   E399|        Swims like a dream before my eyes but the sweet smelling fruit
FZ9-131.3;   E399|        Revives me to new deaths I fade even like a water lilly
FZ9-131.4;   E399|        In the suns heat till in the night on the couch of Enion
FZ9-131.5;   E399|        I drink new life & feel the breath of sleeping Enion
FZ9-131.6;   E399|        But in the morning she arises to avoid my Eyes
FZ9-131.7;   E399|        Then my loins fade & in the house I sit me down & weep

FZ9-131.8;   E399|        Chear up thy Countenance bright boy & go to Enion
FZ9-131.9;   E399|        Tell her that Vala waits her in the shadows of her garden

FZ9-131.10; E399|        He went with timid steps & Enion like the ruddy morn
FZ9-131.11; E399|        When infant spring appears in swelling buds & opening flowers
FZ9-131.12; E399|        Behind her Veil withdraws so Enion turnd her modest head

FZ9-131.13; E399|        But Tharmas spoke Vala seeks thee sweet Enion in the shades
FZ9-131.14; E399|        Follow the steps of Tharmas O thou brightness of the gardens
FZ9-131.15; E399|        He took her hand reluctant she followd in infant doubts

FZ9-131.16; E400|        Thus in Eternal Childhood straying among Valas flocks
FZ9-131.17; E400|        In infant sorrow & joy alternate Enion & Tharmas playd
FZ9-131.18; E400|        Round Vala in the Gardens of Vala & by her rivers margin
FZ9-131.19; E400|        They are the shadows of Tharmas & of Enion in Valas world

FZ9-131.20; E400|        And the sleepers who rested from their harvest work beheld theseOAthese visions
FZ9-131.21; E400|        Thus were the sleepers entertaind upon the Couches of Beulah
FZ9-131.22; E400|        When Luvah & Vala were closd up in their world of shadowy forms
FZ9-131.23; E400|        Darkness was all beneath the heavens only a little light
FZ9-131.24; E400|        Such as glows out from sleeping spirits appeard in the deeps beneath
FZ9-131.25; E400|        As when the wind sweeps over a Corn field the noise of souls
FZ9-131.26; E400|        Thro all the immense borne down by Clouds swagging in autumnal heat
FZ9-131.27; E400|        Muttering along from heaven to heaven hoarse roll the human forms
FZ9-131.28; E400|        Beneath thick clouds dreadful lightnings burst & thunders roll
FZ9-131.29; E400|        Down pour the torrent Floods of heaven on all the human harvest
FZ9-131.30; E400|        Then Urizen sitting at his repose on beds in the bright South
FZ9-131.31; E400|        Cried Times are Ended he Exulted he arose in joy he exulted
FZ9-131.32; E400|        He pourd his light & all his Sons & daughters pourd their light
FZ9-131.33; E400|        To exhale the spirits of Luvah & Vala thro the atmosphere
FZ9-131.34; E400|        And Luvah & Vala saw the Light their spirits were Exhald
FZ9-131.35; E400|        In all their ancient innocence the floods depart the clouds
FZ9-131.36; E400|        Dissipate or sink into the Seas of Tharmas Luvah sat
FZ9-131.37; E400|        Above in the bright heavens in peace. the Spirits of Men beneath
FZ9-131.38; E400|        Cried out to be deliverd & the Spirit of Luvah wept
FZ9-131.39; E400|        Over the human harvest & over Vala the sweet wanderer
FZ9-131.40; E400|        In pain the human harvest wavd in horrible groans of woe

FZ9-132.1;   E400|        The Universal Groan went up the Eternal Man was Darkend

FZ9-132.2;   E400|        Then Urizen arose & took his Sickle in his hand
FZ9-132.3;   E400|        There is a brazen sickle & a scythe of iron hid
FZ9-132.4;   E400|        Deep in the South guarded by a few solitary stars
FZ9-132.5;   E400|        This sickle Urizen took the scythe his sons embracd
FZ9-132.6;   E400|        And went forth & began to reap & all his joyful sons
FZ9-132.7;   E400|        Reapd the wide Universe & bound in Sheaves a wondrous harvest
FZ9-132.8;   E400|        They took them into the wide barns with loud rejoicings & triumph
FZ9-132.9;   E400|        Of flute & harp & drum & trumpet horn & clarion

FZ9-132.10; E400|        The feast was spread in the bright South& the Regenerate Man
FZ9-132.11; E400|        Sat at the feast rejoicing & the wine of Eternity
FZ9-132.12; E400|        Was servd round by the flames of Luvah all Day & all the Night
FZ9-132.13; E400|        And when Morning began to dawn upon the distant hills
FZ9-132.14; E400|        a whirlwind rose up in the Center & in the Whirlwind a shriek   t1003
FZ9-132.15; E400|        And in the Shriek a rattling of bones & in the rattling of bones
FZ9-132.16; E400|        A dolorous groan & from the dolorous groan in tears
FZ9-132.17; E400|        Rose Enion like a gentle light & Enion spoke saying

FZ9-132.18; E401|        O Dreams of Death the human form dissolving companied
FZ9-132.19; E401|        By beasts & worms & creeping things & darkness & despair   t1004
FZ9-132.20; E401|        The clouds fall off from my wet brow the dust from my cold limbs
FZ9-132.21; E401|        Into the Sea of Tharmas Soon renewd a Golden Moth
FZ9-132.22; E401|        I shall cast off my death clothes & Embrace Tharmas again
FZ9-132.23; E401|        For Lo the winter melted away upon the distant hills
FZ9-132.24; E401|        And all the black mould sings. She speaks to her infant race her milk
FZ9-132.25; E401|        Descends down on the sand. the thirsty sand drinks & rejoices   t1005
FZ9-132.26; E401|        Wondering to behold the Emmet the Grasshopper the jointed worm
FZ9-132.27; E401|        The roots shoot thick thro the solid rocks bursting their way
FZ9-132.28; E401|        They cry out in joys of existence. the broad stems
FZ9-132.29; E401|        Rear on the mountains stem after stem the scaly newt creeps
FZ9-132.30; E401|        From the stone & the armed fly springs from the rocky crevice
FZ9-132.31; E401|        The spider. The bat burst from the hardend slime crying
FZ9-132.32; E401|        To one another what are we & whence is our joy & delight
FZ9-132.33; E401|        Lo the little moss begins to spring & the tender weed
FZ9-132.34; E401|        Creeps round our secret nest. Flocks brighten the Mountains
FZ9-132.35; E401|        Herds throng up the Valley wild beasts fill the forests

FZ9-132.36; E401|        Joy thrilld thro all the Furious form of Tharmas humanizing
FZ9-132.37; E401|        Mild he Embracd her whom he sought he raisd her thro the heavens
FZ9-132.38; E401|        Sounding his trumpet to awake the Dead on high he soard
FZ9-132.39; E401|        Over the ruind worlds the smoking tomb of the Eternal Prophet

FZ9-133.5;   E401|        And Many Eternal Men sat at the golden feast to see
FZ9-133.6;   E401|        The female form now separate They shudderd at the horrible thing
FZ9-133.7;   E401|        Not born for the sport and amusement of Man but born to drink up all his powers
FZ9-133.8;   E401|        They wept to see their shadows they said to one another this is Sin   t1006
FZ9-133.9;   E401|        This is the Generative world they rememberd the Days of old  t1007

FZ9-133.10; E401|        And One of the Eternals spoke All was silent at the feast

FZ9-133.11; E401|        Man is a Worm wearied with joy he seeks the caves of sleep
FZ9-133.12; E401|        Among the Flowers of Beulah in his Selfish cold repose
FZ9-133.13; E401|        Forsaking Brotherhood & Universal love in selfish clay
FZ9-133.14; E401|        Folding the pure wings of his mind seeking the places dark
FZ9-133.15; E401|        Abstracted from the roots of Science then inclosd around   t1008
FZ9-133.16; E401|        In walls of Gold we cast him like a Seed into the Earth
FZ9-133.17; E401|        Till times & spaces have passd over him duly every morn
FZ9-133.18; E401|        We visit him covering with a Veil the immortal seed
FZ9-133.19; E401|        With windows from the inclement sky we cover him & with walls
FZ9-133.20; E401|        And hearths protect the Selfish terror till divided all

FZ9-133.21; E402|        In families we see our shadows born. & thence we know | Ephesians
FZ9-133.22; E402|        That Man subsists by Brotherhood & Universal Love |iii c.
FZ9-133.23; E402|        We fall on one anothers necks more closely we embrace | 10 v

FZ9-133.29; E402|        At the immortal tables sounding loud their instruments of joy
FZ9-133.30; E402|        Calling the Morning into Beulah the Eternal Man rejoicd

FZ9-133.31; E402|        When Morning dawnd The Eternals rose to labour at the Vintage
FZ9-133.32; E402|        Beneath they saw their sons & daughters wondering inconcievable
FZ9-133.33; E402|        At the dark myriads in Shadows in the worlds beneath

FZ9-133.34; E402|        The morning dawnd Urizen rose & in his hand the Flail
FZ9-133.35; E402|        Sounds on the Floor heard terrible by all beneath the heavens
FZ9-133.36; E402|        Dismal loud redounding the nether floor shakes with the sound

FZ9-134.1;   E402|        And all Nations were threshed out & the stars threshd from their husks

FZ9-134.2;   E402|        Then Tharmas took the Winnowing fan the winnowing wind furious
FZ9-134.3;   E402|        Above veerd round by the violent whirlwind driven west & south
FZ9-134.4;   E402|        Tossed the Nations like Chaff into the seas of Tharmas

FZ9-134.5;   E402|        O Mystery Fierce Tharmas cries Behold thy end is come
FZ9-134.6;   E402|        Art thou she that made the nations drunk with the cup of Religion
FZ9-134.7;   E402|        Go down ye Kings & Councellors & Giant Warriors
FZ9-134.8;   E402|        Go down into the depths go down & hide yourselves beneath
FZ9-134.9;   E402|        Go down with horse & Chariots & Trumpets of hoarse war

FZ9-134.10; E402|        Lo how the Pomp of Mystery goes down into the Caves
FZ9-134.11; E402|        Her great men howl & throw the dust & rend their hoary hair
FZ9-134.12; E402|        Her delicate women & children shriek upon the bitter wind
FZ9-134.13; E402|        Spoild of their beauty their hair rent & their skin shriveld up
FZ9-134.14; E402|        Lo darkness covers the long pomp of banners on the wind
FZ9-134.15; E402|        And black horses & armed men & miserable bound captives
FZ9-134.16; E402|        Where shall the graves recieve them all & where shall be their place
FZ9-134.17; E402|        And who shall mourn for Mystery who never loosd her Captives
FZ9-134.18; E402|        Let the slave grinding at the mill run out into the field
FZ9-134.19; E402|        Let him look up into the heavens & laugh in the bright air
FZ9-134.20; E402|        Let the inchaind soul shut up in darkness & in sighing
FZ9-134.21; E402|        Whose face has never seen a smile in thirty weary years
FZ9-134.22; E402|        Rise & look out his chains are loose his dungeon doors are open
FZ9-134.23; E402|        And let his wife & children return from the opressors scourge
FZ9-134.24; E402|        They look behind at every step & believe it is a dream
FZ9-134.25; E402|        Are these the Slaves that groand along the streets of Mystery
FZ9-134.26; E402|        Where are your bonds & task masters are these the prisoners

FZ9-134.27; E403|        Where are your chains where are your tears why do you look around
FZ9-134.28; E403|        If you are thirsty there is the river go bathe your parched limbs
FZ9-134.29; E403|        The good of all the Land is before you for Mystery is no more

FZ9-134.30; E403|        Then All the Slaves from every Earth in the wide Universe
FZ9-134.31; E403|        Sing a New Song drowning confusion in its happy notes
FZ9-134.32; E403|        While the flail of Urizen sounded loud & the winnowing wind of Tharmas
FZ9-134.33; E403|        So loud so clear in the wide heavens & the song that they sung was this
FZ9-134.34; E403|        Composed by an African Black from the little Earth of Sotha

FZ9-134.35; E403|        Aha Aha how came I here so soon in my sweet native land   t1009
FZ9-134.36; E403|        How came I here Methinks I am as I was in my youth

FZ9-135.1;   E403|        When in my fathers house I sat & heard his chearing voice
FZ9-135.2;   E403|        Methinks I see his flocks & herds & feel my limbs renewd
FZ9-135.3;   E403|        And Lo my Brethren in their tents & their little ones around them

FZ9-135.4;   E403|        The song arose to the Golden feast the Eternal Man rejoicd
FZ9-135.5;   E403|        Then the Eternal Man said Luvah the Vintage is ripe arise
FZ9-135.6;   E403|        The sons of Urizen shall gather the vintage with sharp hooks
FZ9-135.7;   E403|        And all thy sons O Luvah bear away the families of Earth
FZ9-135.8;   E403|        I hear the flail of Urizen his barns are full no roo[m]
FZ9-135.9;   E403|        Remains & in the Vineyards stand the abounding sheaves beneath
FZ9-135.10; E403|        The falling Grapes that odorous burst upon the winds. Arise
FZ9-135.11; E403|        My flocks & herds trample the Corn my cattle browze upon
FZ9-135.12; E403|        The ripe Clusters The shepherds shout for Luvah prince of Love
FZ9-135.13; E403|        Let the Bulls of Luvah tread the Corn & draw the loaded waggon
FZ9-135.14; E403|        Into the Barn while children glean the Ears around the door
FZ9-135.15; E403|        Then shall they lift their innocent hands & stroke his furious nose
FZ9-135.16; E403|        And he shall lick the little girls white neck & on her head
FZ9-135.17; E403|        Scatter the perfume of his breath while from his mountains high
FZ9-135.18; E403|        The lion of terror shall come down & bending his bright mane
FZ9-135.19; E403|        And couching at their side shall eat from the curld boys white lap
FZ9-135.20; E403|        His golden food and in the evening sleep before the Door

FZ9-135.21; E403|        Attempting to be more than Man We become less said Luvah
FZ9-135.22; E403|        As he arose from the bright feast drunk with the wine of ages
FZ9-135.23; E403|        His crown of thorns fell from his head he hung his living Lyre
FZ9-135.24; E403|        Behind the seat of the Eternal Man & took his way
FZ9-135.25; E403|        Sounding the Song of Los descending to the Vineyards bright
FZ9-135.26; E403|        His sons arising from the feast with golden baskets follow
FZ9-135.27; E403|        A fiery train as when the Sun sings in the ripe vineyards
FZ9-135.28; E403|        Then Luvah stood before the wine press all his fiery sons
FZ9-135.29; E403|        Brought up the loaded Waggons with shoutings ramping tygers play
FZ9-135.30; E403|        In the jingling traces furious lions sound the song of joy
FZ9-135.31; E403|        To the golden wheels circling upon the pavement of heaven & all
FZ9-135.32; E403|        The Villages of Luvah ring the golden tiles of the villages

FZ9-135.33; E404|        Reply to violins & tabors to the pipe flute lyre & cymbal
FZ9-135.34; E404|        Then fell the Legions of Mystery in maddning confusion
FZ9-135.35; E404|        Down Down thro the immense with outcry fury & despair
FZ9-135.36; E404|        Into the wine presses of Luvah howling fell the Clusters
FZ9-135.37; E404|        Of human families thro the deep. the wine presses were filld
FZ9-135.38; E404|        The blood of life flowd plentiful Odors of life arose
FZ9-135.39; E404|        All round the heavenly arches & the Odors rose singing this song   t1010

FZ9-136.1;   E404|        O terrible wine presses of Luvah O caverns of the Grave
FZ9-136.2;   E404|        How lovely the delights of those risen again from death
FZ9-136.3;   E404|        O trembling joy excess of joy is like Excess of grief

FZ9-136.4;   E404|        So sang the Human Odors round the wine presses of Luvah

FZ9-136.5;   E404|        But in the Wine presses is wailing terror & despair
FZ9-136.6;   E404|        Forsaken of their Elements they vanish & are no more
FZ9-136.7;   E404|        No more but a desire of Being a distracted ravening desire
FZ9-136.8;   E404|        Desiring like the hungry worm & like the gaping grave   t1011
FZ9-136.9;   E404|        They plunge into the Elements the Elements cast them forth
FZ9-136.10; E404|        Or else consume their shadowy semblance Yet they obstinate
FZ9-136.11; E404|        Tho pained to distraction Cry O let us Exist for
