From where comes the essence of any thing?


What beauty in the brilliant sun!

Or is that beauty in my eye?

Or perhaps somewhere between,

Drifting with indifferent sky.


How sweet the sound of Orpheus’ lyre!

Or is that sweetness in my ear?

Or perhaps somewhere between,

Hidden by the wind unseen.


What evil oozes from the witch!

Or is that evil in my mind?

Or perhaps somewhere between,

Where witch and I are of the same kind.


From where comes the essence of anything?

Does it come from the self as the doctors say?

Does it come from the thing as the natives pray?

From where comes the essence of anything?
