Leaves from Paradise
Wings of man's mind sing day into night.
The World round Sun breathes darkness to light.
The dragon wind blythe through leaves
Rides gallant where thought conceives.
Gnosis fructifies windfall skies
Affluent with stars by men's eyes
Parsed for power to souls redeem
According to Destiny's mortal theme.
Hearts of woman and man in dance
All trust impart. From bodily trance
Blood ripens via breath foretold
Apples of silver, pearls of gold.
Drenched are limbs in flames of embrace,
Mouths succored of fountaining Grace.
