lumin(1).jpg Byzantium


Before me floats an image, man or shade, Shade more than man, more image than a shade; ******* I hail the superhuman; I call it death-in-life and life-in-death. ******* At midnight on the Emperor's pavement flit Flames that no faggot feeds, nor steel has lit,

Nor storm disturbs, flames begotten of flame, Where blood-begotten spirits come And all complexities of fury leave, Dying into a dance, An agony of trance, An agony of flame that cannot singe a sleeve. 


William Butler Yeats
