Gelett Burgess. 1866–
 
38. Psycholophon:
Supposed to Be Translated from the Old Parsee
 
TWINE then the rays 
  Round her soft Theban tissues. 
All will be as She says, 
  When the dead Past reissues. 
Matters not what nor where,         5
  Hark, to the moon's dim cluster! 
How was her heavy hair 
  Lithe as a feather-duster! 
Matters not when nor whence; 
  Flittertigibbet!  10
Sound make the song, not sense, 
  Thus I inhibit!
