The Book of Thel: An Analysis of Death as a Progenitor of Fear- SchoolbytesShe in paleness sought the secret air, To fade away like morning beauty from her mortal day. Thel is like a wat'ry bow, and like a parting cloud, Like a reflection in a glass, like shadows in the water, Like dreams of infants, like a smile upon an infant's face, Like the dove's voice, like transient day, like music in the air. But Thel is like a faint cloud kindled at the rising sun: I vanish from my pearly throne, and who shall find my place? Thel is like to thee: I pass away; yet I complain, and no one hears my voice. Our steeds drink of the golden springs Where Luvah doth renew his horses. Look'st thou on my youth, And fearest thou, because I vanish and am seen no more, Nothing remains? O maid I tell thee, when I pass away It is tenfold life, to love, to peace, and raptures holy.
