I am the Dark Child,
the Dark Twin,
I was known as Set to the Memphites
Typhaon to the Hellenes,
Loki to the Norsemen,
Mordred to the Brythons,
and by many names which are now forgotten.
Born at the Summer Solstice,
I am the Midnight Sun,
darkness leaping out of light.
Born from the compulsion and malice of forbidden love,
I am the seed of destruction at the heart of all life.
I am the Worm that eats the Season,
the serpent that gnaws at the roots of the World Tree.
My coming in an inexorable law.
I have no worship,
but I am present in all your deeds,
and all your thoughts,
and all your desires,
and all your dreams,
Seek me there.
