twillighters

A conversation with my 7 year old cousin
  • Cousin:Is it possible to eat somewhat out with a straw?
  • Me:where.. Did you.. Get that idea from?
  • Cousin:Twillight.
  • Me:WHAT ?
  • Cousin:there are Vampires and stuff.
  • I bet they can suck someones blood out 'til they are empty with a straw.
  • Me:Probably.. but don't ask anybody else that.
  • Cousin:I bet they can suck really good.
  • Me:Oh God please stop

SORCERY

“What voice is that I hear
Crying across the pool ?”
“It is the voice of Pan you hear,
Crying his sorceries shrill and clear,
In the twillight dim and cool.”

“What song is it he sings,
Echoing from afar ;
While the sweet swallow bends her wings,
Filling the air with twitterings,
Beneath the brightening star ?”

The woodman answered me,
His fagot on his back, -
“Seek not the face of Pan to see;
Flee from his clear note summoning thee
To darkness deep and black !

"He dwells in thickest shade,
Pipping his notes forlorn
Of sorrow never to be allayed ;
Turn from his coverts sad
Of twillight unto morn !”

The woodman passed away
Along the forest path ;
His ax shone keen and grey
In the last beams of day :
And all was still as death : -

Only Pan singing sweet
Out of earth’s fragrant shade;
I dreamed his eyes to meet,
And found but shadow laid
Before my tired feet.

Comes no more dawn to me,
No birds of open skies.
Only his wood’s deep gloom I see
Till, at the end of all, shall rise
Afar and tranquilly,
Death’s stretching sea.

“Mature fireflies which emit light have extremely short life spans of two to three weeks and are traditionally regarded as a symbol of impermanence. Or maybe the fireflies are also symbolic of the human soul” Huor pondered.

Cherry blinked a little as she looked over at her friend. She hadn’t expected such a literal reply. She gave a little smile, “I was just musing…they’re so pretty. I wish they lasted longer,” She shrugged her shoulders a little, looking out at the world that was cast in twillight. “You think fireflies represent souls, Huor?”
