The Blessed Life of Sorcery

Short the distance and smooth the road, 
Not too far from a man’s abode
Seek, you shall find it; far and nigh
Stretches the Land of Sorcery. 
Where never a sense of the world beyond
On the soul bewitch’d intrudes. 
But to soft spells only is sense in bond. 
And, if illusion, delight deludes;
Where the heart does not yearn 
Past what eyes discern. 
Or far in some land remote
Perchance unfriendly, at least unknown
Picture the bliss and the vision alone; 
Here let me anchor a stranded boat,
And taste the joy of the heart and eye 
In the Blessed Life of Sorcery.
Arthur Edward Waite (1857 – 1942)
