*Valerie Wernet*



*from /The Sampo/ *

Moon like a torch fuse. Moon like a redolence of life. A force. A smear.
Väinämöinen. Feeling at his feet earthen powers. Väinämöinen. An incitation,
a feeling of the turning world. An opening in the grove. Spied there. Sudden
kratophanic onset. Sense of instant forces. Issuing into him. Singing.
