Three Palinodias - 01


"Incense is hut a tribute for the gods,—To mortals 'tis but

HE smoke that from thine altar blows,

Can it the gods offend?

For I observe thou hold'st thy nose—Pray what does this portend?

Mankind deem incense to

Each other earthly thing,

So he that cannot bear its smell,

No incense e'er should bring.

With unmoved face by thee at

To dolls is homage given;

If not obstructed by the priest,

The scent mounts up to heaven.
