Dreaming of a Fallen Angel

By many winters passed since she had dreamed,
of an uninvited visit of that fearsome beast;
his jaws wider than the fissure of abyss,
his wings gave birth to the darkest nights.

Many bitter autumns had swept it seemed,
the forgotten fortunes of that revered beast;
his claws had tore a piece of heaven’s bliss,
for none but mortality’s fleeting delights.

Cursed with not that to which the flesh is heir,
but the recurring pains that the mind must bear;
the world is to his temperaments tied,
though she hears not of his earthly plight.

Fools rushing with an engraved plate,
when the errand of existence is the final fate,
not for the love of a loveless sky,
for only the beauties of a flourishing might.
