Soft and hollow, how thou dost overcome the hard
   and full!
It dies, it gives itself; to Thee is the fruit!
Be thou the Bride; thou shalt be the Mother hereafter.
To all impressions thus. Let them not overcome thee;
   yet let them breed within thee. The least of the
   impressions, come to its perfection, is Pan.
Receive a thousand lovers; thou shalt bear but One
This child shall be the heir of Fate the Father.



      Daleth is the Empress of the Tarot, the letter of Venus, and the title, Peaches, again refers to the Yoni.
      The chapter is a counsel to accept all impressions; it is the formula of the Scarlet woman; but no impression must be allowed to dominate you, only to fructify you; just as the artist, seeing an object, does not worship it, but breeds a masterpiece from it. This process is exhibited as one aspect of the Great Work. The last two paragraphs may have some reference to the 13th Aethyr (see The Vision and The Voice).
