Eliot did do a very extensive study of the 16th-17th Century at about
that period. Still I think Opherion fits the poem much better.
Besides, it was used in a STAR TREK: NEXT GENERATION episode
called "Time's Arrow".
Rick, if you want an image of the original poem as it was
published, I can probably oblige.

Is that Herme scratched out right under Gus's name?
as in Hermes, messenger of the gods, aka Flowers Direct to You?
