attendant on spiritual dichotomy.

Robert Graves, The White Goddess

The gods did not reveal, from the beginning, all things to us, but in the 

course of time through seeking we may learn and know things better. But

the gods nor yet of all things of which I speak. For even if by chance he 

was to utter the final truth, he would himself not know it: For all is but a 

woven web of guesses.

started on their way, and soon saw a beautiful green glow in the sky just 

before them. ‘That must be the Emerald City’ said Dorothy.

L Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

The word ‘rose’ is manna to the lyricist.
