Scene-17b The Four Altars.
After listening and viewing from a distance,
Hugo and Orion hear from the fourth altar
what seems like a stifled murmur, a droning hum.
With that we have nothing at all to do,
Or, at least, not now, neither I nor you;
Though some day or other, possibly,
We may see it closer, both you and I;
Orion and Hugo approach in turn the first of three altars,
standing within the outer circle, which surrounds them,
and near the inner.
