Yes, 

"and here the Wheel"

It is significant that Eliot intended 'Gerontion' to preface 'The Waste Land'.

from GERONTION

"In the juvescence of the year
//Came Christ the tiger."//  
  
 
"In depraved May, dogwood and chestnut, flowering judas,
To be eaten, to be divided, to be drunk
Among whispers; by Mr. Silvero
With caressing hands, at Limoges
Who walked all night in the next room;         
By Hakagawa, bowing among the Titians;
By Madame de Tornquist, in the dark room
Shifting the candles; Fraulein von Kulp
Who turned in the hall, one hand on the door. Vacant shuttles
Weave the wind. I have no ghosts,         
An old man in a draughty house
Under a windy knob."
 
//"The tiger springs in the new year. Us he devours."//

The Absolute!
