Firebird

Plunging, plunging with screaming speed,
Oh Eagle of Flame, Whose lidless eyes
Have looked into the Light behind the sun.

When all other creatures are blinded
You soar–and then–faster faster
With talons outspread–You plummet to earth.

To spit fire and speak
Speak of Her!  Firebird–Flaming One
Give me words of purity!
