Is the lion that comes down to drink. There

Ruddy are his eyes and ruddy are his claws
When light comes down to wet his frothy jaws”

Sent, quick and howling, to the centre headlong;
I, fed with judgements,in a fleshy tomb, am
Buried above ground.”

“The bogholes might be Atlantic seepage.
The wet centre is bottomless.”
