"I am to think of you when I sit alone, or wake at night alone, I am to wait, I do not doubt I am to meet you again, I am to see to it that I do not lose you."

The words dæmon and daimôn are Latinized spellings of the Greek “δαίμων”, a reference to the daemons of ancient Greek religion and mythology, as well as later Hellenistic religion and philosophy.

Above: A painting (Herbert James Draper,1909) of Lamia, the queen of Libya who became a daemon according to Greek mythology.
