  • Toldees, Mondath, Arizim, these are the Inner Lands, the lands whose sentinels upon their borders do not behold the sea Beyond them to the east there lies a desert, for ever untroubled by man all yellow it is, and spotted with shadows of stones, and Death is in it, like a leopard lying in the sun To the south they are bounded by magic, to the west by a mountain, and toToldees, Mondath, Arizim, these are the Inner Lands, the lands whose sentinels upon their borders do not behold the sea Beyond them to the east there lies a desert, for ever untroubled by man all yellow it is, and spotted with shadows of stones, and Death is in it, like a leopard lying in the sun To the south they are bounded by magic, to the west by a mountain, and to the north by the voice and anger of the Polar wind Like a great wall is the mountain to the west It comes up out of the distance and goes down into the distance again, and it is named Poltarnees, Beholder of Ocean To the northward red rocks, smooth and bare of soil, and without any speck of moss or herbage, slope up to the very lips of the Polar wind, and there is nothing else there by the noise of his anger Very peaceful are the Inner Lands, and very fair are their cities, and there is no war among them, but quiet and ease And they have no enemy but age, for thirst and fever lie sunning themselves out in the mid desert, and never prowl into the Inner Lands And the ghouls and ghosts, whose highway is the night, are kept in the south by the boundary of magic And very small are all their pleasant cities, and all men are known to one another therein, and bless one another by name as they meet in the streets And they have a broad, green way in every city that comes in out of some vale or wood or downland, and wanders in and out about the city between the houses and across the streets, and the people walk along it never at all, but every year at her appointed time Spring walks along it from the flowery lands, causing the anemone to bloom on the green way and all the early joys of hidden woods, or deep, secluded vales, or triumphant downlands, whose heads lift up so proudly, far up aloof from cities.
