Darkness covers the face of the deep,
a feeble attempt to cover up the void,
the unfurling chaos
of want and tapestry,
where your face should be.

but before the dawn the candles sing!
A flame sings out in the darkness;
a swan song for the new Creation.
And I watch like a suckled babe
as the darkness cowers away,
her memory bathed in the sultry red,
and I close my eyes as the wax yields her scent.
The world was named as good, and all within it;
yes, the world is my mistress –
a fair lady girt in finest silk,

and what is mine is also yours
so I choose to give it all to you.
Under the glimmering grey, sound and wrath deafens
until the soft hug of a dieing wind stills me.
Wealth sprouts up from the soil,
a golden dawn arises with Eoster’s blessing.
