Calcination is the First Step of the Wise Ones

Mercurius sits happily winged at the table.
He is guarded on both sides by sun and moon.

Upon this table, not by accident, grow herbs with flowers.
The couragous lion unhesitatingly devours the serpent.

Through powder the volatile spirit is generally fixed and made permanent.
Then when put on its own soil it enjoys itself with fruit and flowers.
