TranscriptTHE LION of Lions is stalking the setting Sun; He is crouched at the livid rim of the red plain: His mate has pulled down the Moon before him; she rest, Guarding her darkening kill until he has slain. And they shall couple within a complete night; Covered and covering beast so become entire That only a bright Covenant parts them at last, Graced by a single inviolate sphere of Fire.
