CHAPTER XI - Lords of the Day and Night

'Only man dreams, dreams, and dreams, and changes from dream to dream, like a man who tosses on his bed.
'With his eyes and his mouth he dreams, with his hands and his feet, with phallos and heart and belly, with body and spirit and soul, in a tempest of dreams.
`And rushes from dream to dream, in the hope of the perfect dream.
`But I, I say to you, there is no dream that is perfect, for every dream has an ache and an urge, an urge and an ache.
`And nothing is perfect, save the dream pass out into the sleep, I Am.
`When the dream of the eyes is darkened, and encompassed with Now.
`And the dream of the mouth resounds in the last I Am.
`And the dream of the hands is a sleep like a bird on the sea, that sleeps and is lifted and shifted, and knows not.
`And the dreams of the feet and the toes touch the core of the world, where the Serpent sleeps.
`And the dream of the phallos reaches the great I Know Not.
`And the dream of the body is the stillness of a flower in the dark.
`And the dream of the soul is gone in the perfume of Now.
`And the dream of the spirit lapses, and lays down its head, and is still with the Morning Star.
`For each dream starts out of Now, and is accomplished in Now.
`In the core of the flower, the glimmering, wakeless Snake.
`And what falls away is a dream, and what accrues is a dream. There is always and only Now, Now and I Am.'
There was silence in the circle of men. Outside, the sound of the bullock-wagon could be heard, and from the lake, the faint knocking of oars. But the seven men sat with their heads bent, in the semi-trance, listening inwardly.
Then the drum began softly to beat, as if of itself. And a man began to sing, in a small voice:

The Lord of the Morning Star
Stood between the day and the night:
As a bird that lifts its wings, and stands
With the bright wing on the right
And the wing of the dark on the left,
The Dawn Star stood into sight.
