breathes..

Stars fade like memory the instant before dawn.
Low in the east the sun appears,
golden as an opening eye.
That which can be named must exist.
That which is named can be written.
That which is written shall be remembered.
That which is remembered lives.
In the land of Egypt Osiris breathes ..

Normandi Ellis’s translation of the Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead, Awakening Osiris, Phanes Press, Grand Rapids, MI, 1988, p. 43, and is drawn from Chapter XV of the Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead, Papyrus of Ani.
