Post-Mournal Re-Affirmation

Embrace Me Not

By mighty Pan and Bacchus' greater name,
Beneath these embers lurks a spreading flame.
Embrace me not; tho' streams in silence fall,
They sap the basis of the best built wall:
Embrace me not; left this invading fire
Should be but love, and fiercer flames inspire.

- Callimachus (c. 310-240 B.C.)
