Selections from ‘Jerusalem’

[The End of the Song of Jerusalem]

(Jerusalem, f. 99, ll. 1–5.)

ALL Human Forms identifièd, even Tree, Metal, Earth, and Stone; all

Human Forms identifièd, living, going forth and returning wearied

Into the Planetary lives of Years, Months, Days and Hours; reposing,

And then awaking into His bosom in the Life of Immortality.

And I heard the Name of their Emanations: they are namèd Jerusalem.
