Jeg er usikker på om jeg forstår fullt ut alt som står skrevet i begge disse bøkene. Dog passer de så godt som lektyre på senga, drømmeaktige og sensuelle som de er. Agent Provocateurs postkort er mitt eget lille kommentar til Bellmers tegninger.
Her kommer en liten smaksprøve - med takk til de skyldige.
EPILOGUE (To the Triumph of Pan}
Because the fulfilment of dreams is itself but
There is no end save the song, and song is the end ;
And here with a sheaf of songs bareheaded I stand,
And the light is fled from mine eyes, and the sword
from my hand
Is fallen ; the years have left me a fool, and the gleam
Is vanished from life, and the swift years sear me
There is no end save the song, and the joy in the singing,
And song alone may relieve the shadowy pain.
I am weary even of song, and the lyre is cold,
And my heart is lead, and the world seems very old.
Dusk falls on the earth, and Apollo no more comes
His way to me now; it may be I shall sing not again.
Yet to the dream I was true, and I followed the light
Till it vanished, and left me in darkness all cold and
It may be that is the end ; I know not nor care.
If these songs that were wrought in the days of my
springtide are fair,
Perchance they shall seem to you good in the heart of
When you wait for the light that shall come in the
wake of the morn.
