"A Sinister Poem," Part VII:
Burying the Sisterhood has fallen... Peace.
Ecstasy she gave; I abhor such crimes.
Drop Matilda's heart!
Upon Elvira crouch!
Sleep destroy and virtues protect!
Your bosom is impossible... Oh!
Blush to leave them happy.
Feeble Seraphims beside him should be silent.
Mysterious Lucifer I summoned.
"every little breeze..."
