THE DAUGHTER OF FORTITUDE
(received by Edward Kelley and Dr. John Dee)
I am the daughter of Fortitude, and ravished every hour from my youth.
For behold I am Understanding and science dwelleth in me; and the
heavens oppress me. They cover and desire me with infinite appetite; for
none that are earthly have embraced me, for I am shadowed with the
Circle of the Stars and covered with the morning clouds. My feet are
swifter than the winds, and my hands are sweeter than the morning dew.
My garments are from the beginning, and my dwelling place is in myself.
The Lion knoweth not where I walk, neither do the beast of the fields
understand me. I am deflowered, yet a virgin; I sanctify and am not
sanctified. Happy is he that embraceth me: for in the night season I am
sweet, and in the day full of pleasure. My company is a harmony of many
symbols and my lips sweeter than health itself. I am a harlot for such
as ravish me, and a virgin with such as know me not. For lo, I am loved
of many, and I am a lover to many; and as many as come unto me as they
should do, have entertainment.
Purge your streets, O ye sons of
men, and wash your houses clean; make yourselves holy, and put on
righteousness. Cast out your old strumpets, and burn their clothes;
abstain from the company of other women that are defiled, that are
sluttish, and not so handsome and beautiful as I, and then will I come
and dwell amongst you: and behold, I will bring forth children unto you,
and they shall be the Sons of Comfort. I will open my garments, and
stand naked before you, that your love may be more enflamed toward me.
(inspired by John Bates, thank you)
