[poetry,music,personal] Balance

Что-то мне захотелось процитировать Баланса.

The key to joy is disobedience.
There is no guilt and there is no shame.

A moon-piece to fetch up the golden cup
A snow-piece to avoid the great heat of the sun
Is kept in the night and by the light of the moon
An ice-piece so as they seem forever fallen
A night-piece of the dismal supper and strange entertainment
A rare chance-piece, a handsome piece of deformity
The skin of a snake bred out of the spinal marrow of a man
With stones and illegible inscriptions found about great ruins
Pictures of three remarkable steeples, or towers
Built purposely awry, so as they seem eternally tipping and falling
A transcendent perfume made of the richest odorates
Kept in a box of translucent scale
A glass of spirits made of ethereal salt, hermetically sealed up
Kept continually in quicksilver, of so volatile a nature
That it will scarcely endure the light
And therefore only shown in winter
Or by the light of a carbuncle, or a firefly
And batwings
And batwings sing this limnal hymn
A wideness opening and closing
To keep the darkness sealed within
To keep the darkness sealed within

Видит Бог, дорого мне стоила в своё время эта поэзия.

Христос воскресе, как справедливо замечает из соседней комнаты Реша.
