  • On Pearly Wings (A boy’s death)

    Her smile can soothe the woes of loss,
    her song can raise the morn.
    Her touch can make the flowers bloom,
    it’s she, who calms the storm.

    And he, poor boy, so pale and cold,
    she coiled his mortal strings.
    And tucked him in the loving airs
    of hymns on pearly wings.

    To soar the heights, the evermore,
    beyond the human call.
    With beauty’s hold to keep him safe
    for fear the lad might fall.

    She skimmed the mists of sacred verse
    then folded to alight
    with flocks of pearly songstresses
    gathering into light.

    The frightened boy, she held to breast
    and mothered him in grace.
    She joined her hands as if to pray
    and cupped his smiling face.

    Wasted not the boy, his joy
    and taught himself to fly.
    With songs to sing on pearly wings
    as angels do, on high.
