I learned of you long ago

When my spirit awakened

I read the written works

Then had the visions.

 

I know that you have intense power

Requiring physical and spiritual effort

To access both the place and power

Effort is always needed for the worthwhile.

 

Would that I had visited you

When I was a younger man

I guess I was not ready

Spiritually I had to grow.

 

All Magickal places endure.

Outlasting physical exploitation

The spiritual power always

Outlasts the physical wealth.
