FZ9-123.11; E392|        The furious wind still rends around they flee in sluggish effort

FZ9-123.12; E392|        They beg they intreat in vain now they Listend not to intreaty
FZ9-123.13; E392|        They view the flames red rolling on thro the wide universe
FZ9-123.14; E392|        From the dark jaws of death beneath & desolate shores remote   t986
FZ9-123.15; E392|        These covering Vaults of heaven & these trembling globes of Earth
FZ9-123.16; E392|        One Planet calls to another & one star enquires of another   t987
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
FZ9-123.21; E392|        They magnify themselves no more against Jerusalem Nor

FZ9-123.25; E392|        Brother of Jesus what have I done intreat thy lord for me

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

FZ9-123.30; E393|        The Prisoner answers you scourgd my father to death before my face
FZ9-123.31; E393|        While I stood bound with cords & heavy chains, Your hipocrisy
FZ9-123.32; E393|        Shall now avail you nought. So speaking he dashd him with his foot

FZ9-123.33; E393|        The Cloud is Blood dazling upon the heavens & in the cloud
FZ9-123.34; E393|        Above upon its volumes is beheld a throne & a pavement   t989
FZ9-123.35; E393|        Of precious stones. surrounded by twenty four venerable patriarchs   t990

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
FZ9-124.4;   E393|        Still to the Rock in vain they strove to Enter the Consummation
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

FZ9-133.5;   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
FZ9-136.12; E404|        This dreadful Non Existence is worse than pains of Eternal Birth   t1012
FZ9-136.13; E404|        Eternal Death who can Endure. let us consume in fires
FZ9-136.14; E404|        In waters stifling or in air corroding or in earth shut up
FZ9-136.15; E404|        The Pangs of Eternal birth are better than the Pangs of Eternal Death
