Ancient Egypt the Light of the World

Ancient Egypt the Light of the World


A WORK OF RECLAMATION AND RESTITUTION IN TWELVE BOOKS Vol. I and 2.It may have been a million years agoThe Light was kindled in the Old Dark LandWith which the illumined Scrolls are all aglow, That Egypt gave us her mummied hand: This was the secret of that subtle smileInscrutable upon the Sphinx’s face, Now told from sea to sea, from isle to isle;The revelation of the Old Dark Race;Theirs was the wisdom of the Bee and Bird, Ant, Tortoise, Beaver, working human-wise;The ancient darkness spake with Egypt’s Word;Hers was the primal message of the skies: The Heavens are telling nightly of her glory, And for all time Earth echoes her great story.I have written other books, but this I look upon as the exceptional labour which has made my life worth living.

To all lovers of the truth the writer now commends the verifiable truths that wait for recognition in these pages. Truth is all-potent with its silent powerIf only whispered, never heard aloud, But working secretly, almost unseen, Save in some excommunicated book;’Tis as the lightning with its errand doneBefore you hear the thunder. For myself, it is enough to know that in despite of many hindrances from straitened circumstances, chronic ailments, and the deepening shadows of encroaching age, my book is printed, and the subject-matter that I cared for most is now entrusted safely to th.
