that undulant caress

that soothes the mad rogue

running wild

in my heart’s chambers

in ways beyond my fevered grasp

she brings calm to this relentless rant

and shields every fledgling fear in me

beneath her soft mothering wing

This song of heaven

unleashed by angel armies

finds its truest home

in this sad clay

There she stands each night

like a sentry

to the King’s palace

forbidding entrance

to all unworthy things

working as a maiden

in all my secret chambers

polishing the walls

polishing the walls

‘till they come forth as gold
