Mystery: Time and Tide shall pass,I am the Wisdom Looking-Glass.This is the Ruby none can touch:Many have loved it overmuch;Its fathomless fires flutter and sigh,Being as images of the flameThat shall make earth and heaven the sameWhen the fire of the end reddens the sky,And the world consumes like a burning pall,Till where there is nothing, there is all.
Just as thesweet-apple reddens on thehigh branch, high onthehighest, and theapple-pickersmissed it, or rather did not miss it out, but could not reach it.Sappho 7c
Like the sweet apple which reddens upon the topmost bough A-top on the topmost twig which the pluckers forgot, somehow Forgot it not, nay, but got it not, for none could get it till now.Dante Gabriel Rossetti
