As Mercury

“As Mercury with other metals melds to alloys make,
By burnished beads which band and bind and bond and branch and brake
New properties these living silver slivers then do take,
So Truth and Beauty too amalgamize.

“As Mercury when in conjunction with the sphere of Sol
Receives its rays of Reason and refines them for the role
Of thoughts and words discernible when spoke or set on scroll,
So Wit and Wisdom also alchemize.

“As Mercury, while newly born, the world's first lyre strung,
Whose novel notes accompanied the song which well he sung,
That music for the first time then had through the heavens rung,
So Medium and Message harmonize.”
