Example text

But if I do not shrink from it, And boldly look you through and through, Your bony frame in dazzling light Will be dissolved, and born anew. Oh you a shining angel shape Will be, and I, released from strife, Will find the Dance of Death to be The Revels of Eternal Life.

A lotus at her shoulder grows, Complete with flower, and bud, and fruit; Her form is straight and still, for she Is grounded on the Absolute. ‘Awake! ’ Oh may we, seeing her, go forth Encouraged by her perfect smile. The Dance of Death You dance with emperor, pope, and king, With knight and dame of high degree; You dance with youth, you dance with eld, And one day you will dance with me. You take for partner whom you please; To choose is yours, and yours alone, And one day I will surely find Your bony hand within my own, Your bony knee against my knee, As whirling with you in the dance My eyes behold, an inch away, Your ghastly, grinning countenance.

Oh you a shining angel shape Will be, and I, released from strife, Will find the Dance of Death to be The Revels of Eternal Life.
