Silence by Edgar Allen Poe

There are some qualities – some incorporate things,

That have a double life, which thus is made

A type of that twin entity which springs

From matter and light, evinced in solid and shade.

There is a twofold Silence – sea and shore –

Body and soul. One dwells in lonely places,

Newly with grass o’ergrown; some solemn graces,

Some human memories and tearful lore,

Render him terrorless: his name’s “No More.”

He is the corporate Silence: dread him not!

No power hath he of evil in himself;

But should some urgent fate (untimely lot!)

Bring thee to meet his shadow (nameless elf,

That haunteth the lone regions where hath trod

No foot of man), commend thyself to God!

    “the lone regions where hath trod no foot of man” — the regions where our feet now tread…alone and with no others.

    Kinsmen silently steal forth leaving behind faint echoes of approaching Titans.

    Unheard the God-men hone their hunting skills…

    Synchronistikally magikal!
    Last night I finished ‘Third Reich Pilgrim 1’, and this morning I picked up my Poe compilation and read ‘The Gold Bug’.

    While we are on the subject kamerad, I would like to offer my sincere thanks for ‘Third Reich Pilgrim 1’. A truly magikal book in every sense of the word. Your words will live on for an eternity, and ensure that the true spirit of our most holy Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler, will never be obscured by the ocean of ziobotic lies born forth from the android minds of the rodent’s in human form.
    I raise a full horn to you mein kamerad. May Wotan bless your future endeavors

    Sieg Heil!

    Poe certainly had a deep understanding of the Faustian spirit of our people.
    I’ve only ran across this blog recently, and am sorry to see that I missed the offerings for the books of Miguel Serrano’s Hitler trilogy. I’ll keep my eyes peeled here in case they are available again.
    Incidentally, did you happen to see that the 55 club came out with another wonderful book? Guido von List’s “Die Rita der Ario-Germanen” is now available in English! As German is not my first language I had some difficulties in fully grasping parts of the German version, so this is great news. I have my copy already ordered and am eagerly awaiting it.

    May the black sun shine upon you.

    Just finished Manu, after reading Golden Thread, Ultimo Avatara, and innumerable links on you and oregoncougs blog. Frustrated that The Golden Band is unavailable in English. Been practicing Rune Yoga and meditating on the Black Sun, with wonderful results. Just thought I would check in in and update you on my progress. Alexander Maximillion has stood with me, being of invaluable assistance, Thanks for everything Kamerad. Any advice and or suggestions will be highly appreciated
    Heil Hitler!

      Thank you for the kind words Kamerad Tristan. I feel you are in the right place. You are drinking from the wellspring of Truth and ask for more! Many drink from this pure well, and being so used to artificial sweeteners, and pretty colors think it tasteless, when in fact it is the sweetest honey dew.
