STANZA 3 (lines 43-59)

Madame Sosostris , famous clairvoyante,
Had a bad cold, nevertheless
Is known to be the wisest woman in Europe,   45
With a wicked pack of cards. Here, said she,
Is your card, the drowned Phoenician Sailor ,
(Those are pearls that were his eyes. Look!)
Here is Belladonna , the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.   50
Here is the man with three staves , and here the Wheel ,
And here is the one-eyed merchant , and this card,
Which is blank, is something he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man . Fear death by water.   55
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself:
One must be so careful these days.
