The hart indignant

And the dream of the hart is to be Actaeon? Artemis dreamt of the hart when Actaeon stood before Her, and my head should be gossamer with Actaeon!

The Issue of Misnomer‏

Via runnel Bellona, the grave of Archilochus. Misnomer? Hounds' bellies, misnomer? Never, in this rat king of a narrative, is misnomer found. Bellona, yes, Bellona of the runnel, Archilochus, yes, and the wasps whereby his end was not met, no, but graced.

Actaeon's request‏

The hart, Actaeon's request, and the spirit of the well — from design, by hand or by star, placed there alive, maiden — acquiesced.


Eccho, attend, the lovèd Muses again

Only plaints hast thou —
thine vilest grief hastes to meet thine rival tongue

Orfeo's fell, and Philomel's —
could'st Eccho's, again unacquainted with the lovèd Muses?

Eccho, attend, the lovèd Muses again
