Stran 40 - The wolf and the dog; dear incense hour When Mother Earth hath a smell of musk. And things of the spirit assert their power — When candles are set to burn in the west — Set head and foot to the day at rest.
Stran 19 - I dwelt alone In a world of moan, And my soul was a stagnant tide, Till the fair and gentle Eulalie became my blushing bride — Till the yellow-haired young Eulalie became my smiling bride.
Stran 69 - This mad sea shows his teeth tonight. He curls his lip, he lies in wait, With lifted teeth, as if to bite! Brave Admiral, say but one good word: What shall we do when hope is gone?" The words leapt like a leaping sword: "Sail on! sail on! sail on! and on!
Stran 62 - ... And the rolling of clouds, and a deafening din, And a darkness that had been black to the blind, Came down, as I shouted, ' Come in ! come in ! Come under the roof, come up from the river, As up from a grave — come now, or come never...

I slowly climbed the steps, and passed by many a tatchu temple like Shorei An, Zoroku An — dear is this name of Tortoise Temple — and others which serve as vassals to great Engakuji, and finally reached the priest hall to learn to my no small delight that the opening ceremony of Dai Setshin or "Great Meeting with Spirit" was going to be held that night.
Stran 219 - Buddhist meditation. —"You have to bend your right leg and set it in the crotch of your left, which, too, must be put on your right. Then the back of your right hand must be placed on the left leg, and the back of your left hand within your right palm ; and both of your thumbs must be raised to form a circle. You must not look up nor down; your ears and shoulders must be straight in line, and also your nose and navel. Open your eyes as usual, and breathe in and out slowly. Above all, you must find...
