    Summary

    SEERS, or Men of the SECOND SIGHT,…have very terrifying Encounters with [the FAIRIES, they call Sleagh Maith, or the Good People].
    -The Secret Commonwealth by Robert Kirk and Andrew Lang

     

     

    Thou hast conquered, O pale Galilean; the world has grown grey from thy breath;
    We have drunken of things Lethean, and fed on the fullness of death.
    … Sleep, shall we sleep after all? for the world is not sweet in the end;
    For the old faiths loosen and fall, the new years ruin and rend.
    Fate is a sea without shore, and the soul is a rock that abides;
    But her ears are vexed with the roar and her face with the foam of the tides.
    […] Where, mighty with deepening sides, clad about with the seas as with wings,
    And impelled of invisible tides, and fulfilled of unspeakable things,
    White-eyed and poison-finned, shark-toothed and serpentine-curled,
    Rolls, under the whitening wind of the future, the wave of the world.
    -Algernon Charles Swinburne, “Hymn to Proserpine”
