the first of gate and all but one (spinners/singers) do gather souls
by fires light.
on, the second of gate ripples through the shapes of past
third of gates is breached in whisper should the ear be sound.
lo! This night doth bring such fears of crack that rivers breathe in
SPINNERS OF DIAMOND LIGHT. Being LIBER CXVI.
FIRST OF SPINNERS:
THE TALISMAN. Being
the Lords of Lyra.
one eternal moment presupposed
all balance meets upon the Eye;
past and future intersect in turn
cosmic wheel, so life from death is fired.
such a moment do the veils withdraw
Swift of Second as the Powers yield
the heart. Now Chronos stands aside
muted image to the source revealed.
borne of speakers is the Talisman,
serpent crowning child of flame;
haunting song that once could move the trees,
bind a rivers course for turn again.
ruler, sacred marker bearing south,
sound as Lord of Flight unto the eye,
would, at rest, eternal vigil keep
gather strands across the gulfs of time.
quarter turn of wheel comes memory,
One more and talons claw the stellar night;
The hunter and the hunted intertwined
Come through the void as imprint to the mind.
The dying child is keeper of this frame,
That things as senseless be would now reflect
strength of purpose in the rend of heart,
challenge and direction to effect.
the Lords of Flame is payment due,
offering of Truth unto the Eye,
having given all as sacrifice
wheel gives out new meaning to design.
