PRESCRIPTIONS 1 & 2

1

May he labor as hard as he likes
For gold is water and yet is none
Its own water does not remain with it
For if gold is sown into its own field
Its grows and multiplies itself
Where this water can be found is kept
It is hardest to fetch from Arabia

2

Use some fire of salt
Set it closed to digest
Distill the spirit of wine to half
Pour those off as they are good for nothing
Thereafter set it in ashes or sand
But if a pearl is thus dissolved
It can no longer be bought to body



PRESCRIPTIONS 3 & 4

3

During every fortnight to three weeks
Bury it again in the greatest heat

On a gentle charcoal fire
Thickened with filings of iron

A teaspoon may be given for a dose
If disease be cold, acute or gross

4

Your furnace must stand under a chimney
Because it consist of antimony

A tinging powder upon brick
So fused it can no longer mix

Separate such silver with aqua fortis
Powder finely in clean iron mortar

BOOK I



OF CURES UNFORESEEN

Letting time pass
With the rose in a glass

Ways and passages
To natural catastrophes

Further degree of fixation
With little undertaken

The overfiring now used
Some work of good news

That little quantity
Serves so abundantly


All these are no dream
Of cures unforeseen



FLOURISHED AS OF LATE

Tessio readied his spear
To cut his crop clear

By tending his land
He gains the upper hand

That precious treasure
Heavy as a feather

Falls from atop branches
Such a fine advantage

Prize of patience
Of many days taken

They call Tessio the great
He has flourished as of late



FOREVER IT LASTS

"Who can subdue reality
With divine vitality

Remain and restore order
Drive the wicked to corners

Who can lay waste to the land
Transfigure water into sand

Take one part earth
With water and the work

Who can take the flame
Drown it with rain

Draw a worthy bath
Forever it lasts"



ABOVE ALL DAYS

There will be a vast sea
Which none can describe
Not warm and moist like air
Nor dry and cold like earth
Nor cold and moist like water
Nor hot and dry like fire
They that have it have all things
And need no further aid
A well of all joys above all days
Upholding the strength of all things
Driving out hatred and sorrow
Driving out poverty and misery
To the pious honor and long life
For they will never decay


JOY WITHOUT A MORTAL CARE AS IF YOUNG

We can kiss the sun as the stars disappear
Write things that go beyond our years

See things beyond what is seen
Walk in and out of another's dream

Like what is later to come
Will be as if already done

To tame and calm the beast of burden
A luxurious power so certain

By a drop of the world on the tongue
Joy without a mortal care as if young



TO STOP BAD WEATHER

To stop bad weather
Feed arsenic to ashes
Give our pigment color
Fill up your glasses

To be without within
Find the dry land
Go dwell therein
Work without hands

To at once flee
Make stone from zinc
Cross over the Jordan
Take all and drink



VIRTUE RARELY FINDS AN HEIR

Life and essence of man
Is no way fit to know or plan
But approach perfection's best
With water toward the west
The heavens open to say
Creatures by cause led astray
Virtue rarely finds an heir
Made through work and ware
Extract of tears will yield
And grow up tall in the field
An essence not to be found
Neither here nor around




WITHOUT FEAR IN A DRY FIRE

Vapors of the sea not burned
Blood of grapes compose our fire
The gentle heat gives solace
Greatest and most natural
Like as the fruits of a tree
A cherry first to white
Then back to red
When it comes to perfection
For the space of days
Make all sincere and pure
Without which no profit had
Without fear in a dry fire

TAKE CARE FOR INFANTS

Dissolve and temper with water of the sea
The son of Adam described it thus
For this vinegar burns to black
Which makes gold into sheer spirit

Know, O' crowd of those that remain
That none begins without virtue
Therefore commence had labor
Yet take care for infants

More precious and more subtle than pearls
Because out of gum with a little gold
We procure more than the whole word
Behold what is said of this despised thing

That which is produced out of metals
Which is the heart of the sun
Yet others have declared it
Gold of the Indies whose root is one




EVERLASTING NOW

Come with me to heaven's door
I just want to show you more
So much more than you know
Drink such the god-like image
Become very pure and noble
Since there is none better
Again become the glory
Establish the everlasting 
Our sun below here in earth




WATER THAT'S BURNED

The elements will melt in the heat
Earth and all her works will burn in it
And a new world will be born
Wonderful and precious and good
The fire must do this and perform these acts
Turn your thoughts to the water that's burned
This too is no common fire
Common fire can neither burn nor destroy gold
This fire alone is spiritual
This fire of the wise is horse dung and live calcium
Cook and bake in the warmth of a horse's stomach
You must search for no other fire than this

RADICAL FIRE OF GOLD

Without leaving out anything at all
In order to let it be known
The universal medicine
Being a far greater blessing
Than the gift of riches
Honestly describing all processes
Its parts bring about a natural crises
Chasing out all morbid matter
Which would impede the pay of life
To exist for several centuries in good health
No illness can resist its action
Few combustibles are necessary
Even less receptacles
Using a slight quantity
Destroys body and soul
Radical fire of gold



FROM ALL ETERNITY FOREKNOWN

In an admirable manner
Follow in footsteps of assistance

What wise thing we seek
By operation we lay claim

When the fat of the earth
Ascends of natural virtue

By art search no further
For it is like a lesser world

Before the beginning of the world
From all eternity Foreknown

A certain essence then
Fills all things the more




POVERTY TRIUMPHANTLY PUT TO FLIGHT

Fire must not be excited by the blast
Not melting but only a calcining mass

Melt the crude to a glass with patience
Gold calc opened for further operation

The process of Myriam the prophetess
Be employed in labors of great consequence

Like Myriam's expression to Aros
Of dead ends therefore be careful

Darkness laid for noonday bright
Poverty triumphantly put to flight




HAVE YOU BEHELD A FLAME THAT SPRINGS?

They that know these three
That differ not in substance perfectly

Which came from earth to earth returns
High heaven's resplendent portions burn

Where from flow ambrosial streams
Pouring into the land of richer things

You must pardon strange expressions
Sweet and decadent confessions

Have you beheld a flame that springs
Greatest of most scarce discoveries

Believe water can be made of stone
Upon virgin gestures of the unknown




ON PREGNANT WATER INDEED

Let it fly, let it fly
Take the earth
For what it's worth

Let it fly, let it fly
That which is free
Is all you need

Let it fly, let it fly
Perform in our fashion
Put fire to ashes

Let it fly, let it fly
Let the hungry air feed
On Pregnant water indeed







BOOK II



NOW WORKS WONDERS

Words beget little
Without a subtle flair
What lies beneath
I cannot share

But be assured
Anyone can see
What washes up
Becomes the key

Keep what you can
And keep it away
Let it alone
Until one day

What was wretched
Now works wonders
Gives one power
Takes one under




TAKE PEARLS FOR COMMON SALT

Fling wide the prison doors
Whoever ignorant of allusion
Never known to the wisest
Let the sun stand still
Trade your days for years
Like ashes or flint's humor
Purge what is absurd
Perfect a precious thing
Take pearls for common salt




AN EARTLY CALX GOOD AND PURE

Meadows of large studded hills
Appear among Elysian fields

Slopes of fringed laurels draped
Above clad olive escapes

Plains covered with groves
Overhung hiding the roads

Lush branches afford shade
By faintest smell of sage

It can be increased first to ten
Then to a hundred and so again

In this place take for sure
An earthly calx  good and pure




WHAT WAYS WE PRACTICE

The flood once recedes
And many have such a fusion
Of all spirits whatsoever
Worthily rejoicing in art

Hardly to be gotten by men
From swamps of mean dross
Every beast subject to burden
Proceeding from the unclean

With conscious further distill
Without further doubts rising
Compel to confess and admire
What ways we practice

An earth naturally naked
Evaporate vinegar on pitch
Being a little dried
Purify in so much pleasure




FIRST SOLUTION OF THE GROSS BODY

First take three parts antimony
Which will make two parts gum
After it be well dissolved
Should be the finest allum

Take five more parts twice distilled
Again add the weight of gum
Dissolve each pound thereof
Until well molten to the bottom

Dissolution in a fit glass vessel
Stir it about with a clean stick
Then filter over the said liquors
For that is superfluous filth

First solution of the gross body
Which keep closed and covered
And cast away the rank
For it enters not into the work




THERE SHALL BE A SOBER FIRE

There shall be a sober fire
Climbing the receiver's neck
But when you see white fume
Place the issue in check

There shall be a faint water
Going to the neck of the retort
Which keep sealed well
So that none issue forth

Increase the fire little by little
Continue til the last flame
And when all things are cold
The spirit will vanish not away

Then peak into the neck
Find the hard white ryme
Separate the blessed liquor
Let it feed the fire




THEN DRAW OUT THE FLOOD

For instance take the dead
Blackish like unto soil
By rectifying the ardent water
There will come a white oil

Then draw it out more
With the heat of stoves
Calcine to a citrine color
Extraordinary to behold

Again evaporate the gum
Over the burning coals
Then draw out the flood
Or water of the stone

Mingle this with white calx
And ashes of a good bath
More fumes will issue
Into the receiver of the glass




A HIDDEN APOCALYPSE

Making of metals
We solely accomplish
For what we know
A hidden apocalypse

It rains on the sun
Anguish makes for play
None know of splendor
Angels reap the same

Dare delay paradise
For last judgement
Lay grains of wheat
To rot in substance

On yeast-risen bread
Perform these acts
Distill the gross
Pour the extract




AS LONG AS THE WORLD REMAINS

As long as the world remains
Dry land grows beneath
The whole world given
Though so violently
Until it is unchanging
Formally finished in ferment
Actually fixed and stable
Proceed now to rule
To remain after time
Imagine immensity refined
What follows hereafter
As long as the world remains




HOW THERE SHALL ARISE A SPIRIT

The visible natures of birth and decay
Depart from common grace
If the air did not breath forth
The air would not generate

Observe the sun when it rises
Heaven overcomes the air by its heat
How there shall arise a spirit
The tenuous vapors will meet

There necessarily issues something great
Kept within bounds by the air
Heat would certainly destroy all that lives
Beside that which is spared

Between the humidity of water
And the fire hot and dry
The heat being joined to humor
The air being cast aside




PARCHED BY FIRE'S THIRST

Parched by fire's thirst
Rain yield over in projection
Natural manner of brimstone
Burning beneath the waters
Birthing artificial flowers
Stand these in sand baths
In no other bitter acid
Lies a valuable corrosive




SWEAT OF LORDS

Sit back and observe
That deemed absurd

Breath of solemn storms
Priceless sweat of lords

Wasteland absorbs streams
Seeding stalks of greens

Proper crop indefinite
Which we recommend

Pursuit plains of plenty
Strain fully til' empty




PEPPER PLANTS OF CINDER

Pepper plants of cinder
Until transient colors fold
Coats of victory cloaked
Essential sweat of vines

Ring juice from roots
Collect honey of dew
Care for frequent aspers
Clean land by calcium

Trap arsenic's pigment
Hold cold in delay
Feed the hungry ground
Drop the willing air

Balm for all wounds
Allow profit for time
Redeem the most noble
Without fault or defect




ROLL ON LIGHT RIVERS

Roll on light rivers
Crying out for tide
Laying on down
Through great divides

Roll on light rivers
In greater amounts
Flush stone from ash
Bring showers devout

Roll on light rivers
Push grandeur high
Save what still flames
Unfold what's inside

Roll on light rivers
Fold into fire's brim
Reap over green fields
Sow the rivers again




BLISS WITHOUT FURTHER WONDERS

Scarce you'll find what it is
Rather to know is better

What comes of nature please pursuit
Peaceful solvent of solitude

Lonely's only the one
Then take no others

Wash all that wanders
See that none partake

This grief soon uncovers
Bliss without further wonders




SUFFER NO OBSESSION

Suffer no obsession
Except that quick gold
Run it into thin water
Being once dissolved
Will issue forth forever
Draw forth thereof a sweet salt
Dew with a little breath
Thin fume in a short space
Unnatural fire of sea water
Join with ferment of common gold
Set ablaze the vapor of minerals
Set aside in the wind to dry
