الصفحة 320 - Next, where the Sirens dwell, you plough the seas; Their song is death, and makes destruction please. Unblest the man, whom music wins to stay Nigh the cursed shore, and listen to the lay ; No more that wretch shall view the joys of life, His blooming offspring, or his beauteous wife ; In verdant meads they sport ; and wide around Lie human bones, that whiten all the ground...
الصفحة 319 - But when she places herself on the seat of the god she becomes accommodated to his stable prophetic power ; and from both these preparatory operations she becomes wholly possessed by the god. And then, indeed, he is present with and illuminates her in a separate manner, and is different from the fire, the spirit, the proper seat ; and, in short, from all the apparent apparatus of the place, whether physical or sacred.
