„We and it and all together flashing through the starry spaces
In a tempest dream of beauty lighting up the place of places.“

The Nuts of Knowledge (1903)
Contexto: We and it and all together flashing through the starry spaces
In a tempest dream of beauty lighting up the place of places.

By a hand of fire uplifted—to her star-strewn palace brought,
To the mystic heart of beauty and the secret of her thought:
