Happy Haruspex Day

The Met’s Artwork of the Day.

I have no actual predictions so I’ll leave you with a bit of incantatory verse with a BEWARE in it:

I would build that dome in air
That sunny dome! Those caves of ice!
And all who heard should see them there
And all should cry, Beware! Beware!
His flashing eyes, his floating hair!
Weave a circle round him thrice,
And close your eyes with holy dread,
For he on honey-dew hath fed,
And drunk the milk of Paradise.


— S. T. Coleridge
