“It is Aglaia!
But the water should be brighter, like the Spring
of Erechtheus. It is unworthy of the gods
to see their images in a dark mirror.
                        But we are not—” this
with a terrible sigh, “we are not in Greece.”
“Are you then a Greek?” asked Papa, gesturing,
“and are these your gods?” “These? Neither mine nor yours.
                        We have come too late
for them. It is the world which is divine now,
and that is why there is no God. The divine
has no name, only the gods are named, like these,
                        and they changed their names.”
