From my unpublished anthology "An Eternal Golden Flame"
Bird of beginnings rising to inspire
Born of divine light birthed within a flame
From heart of the sun to flight in the fire
Flies the phoenix in colour and in name
To stoke the fancies of poets and kings
Lost to their dreams of dreams now lost
In mourning like the caged bird that sings
For be them long since turned to piles of dust
And in burning night they weep for the love
Blackened by the blaze of hate without end
Like an olive branch sought by seeking dove
Burnt to crisp by the hands of men
