The Aurum and Argentum

The Aurum and Argentum

#favorite #love

Golden and folden are the cards
That maketh and shapeth shapeless fates,
And harply play our mortal hearts
To turn hate to love and love to hate.

Silver is spun the silence of sooths,
Forsooth that it glimmers so rare,
And so parts from our divinations of youth
That it’s not truth ‘til there’s white in our hair.

Thus call it not an auguration
When I my reason so unrope,
For I oft drink from that libation
We mortal men doth calleth hope.

This chalice I raise not to my own wealth
Nor for sovereign powers unto me bestow
Nor the kiss of Fortune herself,
But that there is one truth you should know;

Though Silver sooths I cannot hear,
And Golden cards I cannot see,
So is the hope I cherish dear:
My future to be found in thee.


A webmention is a way for anyone to interact with my content on any platform they like. Most of mine are on Twitter, but if you prefer to "like", "repost", or "mention" my post on any platform like Tumblr, or Reddit, that works too! Here's what you have to do: you can post a link to this post on your social media of choice, or even your own site, and I'll receive a notification. In a few hours, your post should show up below as a mention. Alternatively, if I post a link to this post on Twitter (as an example) and you like, repost, or reply to that tweet, those interactions will show up here as well! Here's the official Webmention description:

Webmention is a web standard for mentions and conversations across the web, a powerful building block that is used for a growing federated network of comments, likes, reposts, and other rich interactions across the decentralized social web.
