Dominions such as we might never imagine
Those shadowy lands never recalled
Dreamscapes without parallel, hard drawn
Memory fails for all attempts at grasping
Straws have held bare better intimations
Fountains of fire from Io last longer.
Fragments formed from mountain quartz
Glitter brighter than those which store
The dreams forgotten from days of Eld
Far songs sung across snowdrifts sink
In those wonders where wended wisdom’s woe
Memory, memory, most maliciously mighty contested.
