Amidst turbulent waters,
The King holds command —
A seat of stone within the storm.
Upon the throne of Intuition
Sits the great Advisor —
Placid water below
And calm sky above,
She of compassion
Gazes into your soul
And smiles.
Spurred on by the heart’s call,
The knight flies ahead on winged feet;
Joined by those who flock to his banner
He is impelled to continue his journey.
Through dreams and visions,
The muses act —
Open yourself to their gentle touch,
Their images bursting forth into life.
The hearth warm, your family gathers;
The night is cool and calm.
The children rest nearby,
Their sleep untroubled
In the company of their kin.
"It was only he that I was named for who ate of the fruit of the tree and then beguiled the man and the woman with it. We others are still ignorant of sin; we are not able to commit it; we are without blemish, and shall abide in that estate always. We--" Two of the little workmen were quarreling, and in buzzing little bumblebee voices they were cursing and swearing at each other; now came blows and blood; then they locked themselves together in a life-or-death struggle. Satan reached out his hand and crushed the life out of them with his fingers, threw them away, wiped the red from his fingers on his handkerchief, and went on talking where he had left off: "We cannot do wrong; neither have we any disposition to do it, for we do not know what it is."

...the wives of the little dead men had found the crushed and shapeless bodies, and were crying over them, and sobbing and lamenting, and a priest was kneeling there with his hands crossed upon his breast, praying; and crowds and crowds of pitying friends were massed about them, reverently uncovered, with their bare heads bowed, and many with the tears running down-- a scene which Satan paid no attention to until the small noise of the weeping and the praying began to annoy them, then he reached out and took the heavy board seat out of our swing and brought it down and mashed all those people into the earth just as if they had been flies, and went on talking just the same.
