MYSTIC POEM # 3...I RELISH DREAMS PUT ASSUNDER. ENCHANTED, I QUIETLY FIND PEACE FOREVER CALLED. I BID THEE FAREWELL UPON MY ETERNAL ENCHANTMENT. I, A FOREVER POSSESSED SELF LOVE. I SQUANDER OUR ETERNAL LOVE PUT ASSUNDER. WILLING TO CRUMBLE AT THOUEST ETERNAL BECKONING CALL. I SUTTLE MY APPROACH TRANSCENDED.
