My last important work had
been done at Marseilles on the way out, where we had to wait two
days for a boat to take us to Algiers. . . .
During the journey I wrote
Pilgrim", "Return" and "On the Edge of the Desert",
lyrics inspired by the idea of getting back to my inamorata in
— The Confessions of Aleister Crowley.
