Every time less than the pulsation of the artery

Is equal in its period and value to six thousand years.

For in this period the poet’s work is done, and all the great

Events of time start forth and are conceived in such a period,

Within a moment: a pulsation of the artery.



Every space larger than a red globule of man’s blood

Is visionary, and is created by the hammer of Los.

And every space smaller than a globule of man’s blood opens

Into eternity, of which the vegetable earth is but a shadow.
