To J. L. D.
by: Aleister Crowley (1875-1947)
At last, so long desired, so long delayed,
The step is taken, and the threshold past;
I am within the palace I have prayed
Like scudding winds, when skies are overcast,
Came the soft breath of
, that might not fade.
O Love, whose magic whispers bind me fast,
O Love, who hast the kiss of Love betrayed,
Hide my poor blush beneath thy pinions vast,
Since thou hast come, nor left me more a maid,
