Elysian Fields: Redacted Poem #1

Text from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, Chapter CX: Elysian Fields. The underlying image is a close-up shot from Cassini; one of Saturn’s moons, Daphnis, appears just to the right of the words “I plough” ploughing through the rings and creating ripples. Cassini image credit: CICLOPS/Cassini/NASA.
