Alchemic poem written using the Pathya Vat form.
the all is one
swallow my tail
covered with scale
world embracing

so always my
path retracing

fulfils roles
as the year turns

each season brings
endless returns
the wisest learns

and reduce their
so rend the veil

This particular poem is designed to cycle, so the last line fulfils the rhyme scheme for the first stanza.
