Phantoms in the Human Mind


There are Phantoms in the human mind
Phantoms of lies
Phantoms of truth
Phantoms of Amrita, the girl I loved
Phantoms of my lover, Ruth.

There are phantoms in the human mind
Of tiring tears
Of pain that my soul bears (Ahh! It Shears)
Of love in the fire
Of a sanctuary, when from the world I retire.

There are phantoms in the human mind
These very illusions of Existence
Of the Human kind
Phantoms in the world
Are mazes on the frame of Life
Phantoms of survival, struggle and strife!

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
