For Phoenix




Dear phoenix, oh phoenix
Oh ancient, artful, omniscient bird.
You who is knowledge and strength and beauty,
You who is one in a crowd of others.

Cut from the sand in a far away place,
Danced into life by flames kicking at the stars,
Forged from blessed fire into delicate glass,
Risen again as protector of the sun.

Teach us your wisdom,
Steal us with strength,
Grace us with beauty and honour and love.
You who is one in a crowd of others.

Oh Phoenix, dear Phoenix
Oh delicate, sleeping, dreaming girl.
Just embers now, to be fanned and kept,
Glistening moments, turned memories so quick.

Cut from the stars that are smiling above,
Dreamed into life with protection and warmth, 
Forged from blessings into delicate feathers -
Unfurl your wings - come greet the sun

Follow your wisdom,
Trust in your strength,
Grow with beauty and honour and love.
- Live to be one in a crowd of others.
