Torches sway in darkness
Ascending mountainside
Tangible Anticipation
Heralds the Dionysus Gait
Throbbing, quickening heart
Bound, hand and foot
The pipers song of death
An elegant recital

Whereupon dark encampments
Spirit escapes the flesh
Dance to the flame
Weakened corporeal state
Wine poured to the ground
Possessed by the unnatural
Lost in mystic visions


Kantharos raised above me
My consciousness returns
Beside me raised a tattered flag
Dionysus has sealed this stave


Surrounded by faceless persona
Knelt before me the elder one
Awarded am I the Thyrsos
Encapsulated by the Gods
