Editor’s Note7THE WILLS OF THE WISP A SAPPHIC

  • Vix ea nostra voco
  • Lunatic Witch-fires! Ghosts of Light and Motion!
  • Fearless I see you weave your wanton dances
  • Near me, far off me; you, that tempt the traveller
  • Onward and onward.     
  • pg 980Wooing, retreating, till the swamp beneath him
  • Groans—and 'tis dark!—This woman's wile—I know it!
  • Learnt it from thee, from thy perfidious glances!
  • Black-ey'd Rebecca!
