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

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].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-92.11; E364|        They sound the clarions strong they chain the howling captives
FZ7b-92.12; E364|        they give the Oath of blood They cast the lots into the helmet,   t816
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-93.2;   E365|        O Melancholy Magdalen behold the morning breaks
FZ7b-93.3;   E365|        Gird on thy flaming Zone. descend into the Sepulcher
FZ7b-93.4;   E365|        Scatter the blood from thy golden brow the tears from thy silver locks
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
