Have Witches Gone the Way of Wonders
|Music: Fugue from the Fantasie and Fugue in d minor
By Max Reger. Sequenced by Sergei Winitzki at Kunst der Fuge.
|Hear me read the poem:
As a .wav file
As an MP3 file
|Have witches gone the way of wonders,
Asterisks of yesterday?
Life restores what reason sunders,
Lest we lose our mind for play.
Once we knew that what we knew
Was like a ship upon a sea.
Evil spirits wandered through
Eternity, and what was true
Never tainted what might be.
