According To The Formulas Of Ancient Grecosyrian Magi

 "What distillate can be discovered from herbs
of a witching brew," said an aesthete,
"what distillate prepared according
to the formulas of ancient Grecosyrian magi
which for a day (if no longer
its potency can last), or even for a short time
can bring my twenty three years to me
again; can bring my friend of twenty two
to me again -- his beauty, his love.
"What distillate prepared according to the formulas of ancient Grecosyrian magi which, in bringing back these things, can also bring back our little room.
"
