Immolation of Endymion


Blades of vengeance
Plunging in to abyssal depths
Of sculpted bronze
Of a tempestuous Adonis
In a concoction of wrath and abhorrence
For the prince in shining armor
Transmuted to the sable Lucifer
As the pledge of marriage
Evaporated like a miasmas
As a broken promise
Entrenched
To a blissful ordination of blood
In the rite of spring
Metamorphosed to
A juggernaut of pure odium
To the act of immolation
Of the beauty of Endymion

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

Kneel down, fair Love, and fill thyself with tears,
Girdle thyself with sighing for a girth
Upon the sides of mirth,
Cover thy lips and eyelids, let thine ears
