(06/24/1961) The Black Osiris

The Black Osiris
Dread Virgin, Mother, Harlot, Crone
Thy dusky beauty sears my dreams
Direct my quest to Thee alone
Dissolve this world in all it seems
KALI! Mother of Horror

Transmitter of the Secret Seed
Thyself untouched and undefiled
Bend down and bless us in our need
Pure black perfection that has smiled
KALI! Mother of Horror

Deep black Abyss that is the mind
Eternal Worm that cannot die
Save by Your grace to humankind:
Relieve us in our agony
KALI! Mother of Horror

Dark Virgin pregnant with The Child
The Dragon’s Head is raised for Thee
To tred upon. The bruise is mild
But he explodes in ecstasy
KALI! Mother of Horror
