(Faith divine)

The chandelier
Casts silhouette
Of dazzling tears
In pirouette
Each candid cheer
Sincerely kept
Ten thousand years
Of introspect

The oubliette
Once dour and dank
Now stretches to the towering crag
Empowering act of bowered passage
Through the bloom to flowering ash
Expansive views herein be mused
Diffused the light
Enthused its flight
To stake claim on elusive prize
And smooth terrain
Regained of stride

With veins ablaze
The flame it climbs
Takes great delight
In tracing lines
To paint mosaic
Lace the skies
Lay waste
Prosaic days aside
Embrace the brazen face of night
Equipped brave of crusading knight
Innately sway
Cascading light
Of stately grace
In faith divine

Such is praised
Its native shrine
This haven safe
Neath clay and lime
Bequeathed redeem
Forgave of blight
In fever dream
Awakened blind
To seek the keep of spacious sight
Release that deep to brave the night
Make peace and leap to greatest height
The chandelier takes maiden flight

Flight need not hinge on our landing gear
Or standing here
Widen thy wings beyond span my dear
Define chandelier

Casts silhouette
Of dazzling tears
In pirouette
Each candid cheer
Sincerely kept
Ten thousand years
Of introspect
In famed reprise

The chandelier
Casts silhouette
Of dazzling tears
In pirouette
Each candid cheer
Sincerely kept
Ten thousand years
Of introspect

With veins ablaze
The flame it climbs
Takes great delight
In tracing lines
To paint mosaic
Lace the skies
Lay waste
Prosaic days aside
Embrace the brazen face of night
Equipped brave of crusading knight
Innately sway
Cascading light
Of stately grace
In faith divine

Expansive views herein be mused
Diffused the light
Enthused its flight
To stake claim on elusive prize
And smooth terrain
Regained of stride

To seek the keep of spacious sight
Release that deep to brave the night
Make peace and leap to greatest height
The chandelier takes maiden flight

Flight need not hinge on our landing gear
Or standing here
Widen thy wings beyond span my dear
Define chandelier

The chandelier
Casts silhouette
Of dazzling tears
In pirouette
Each candid cheer
Sincerely kept
Ten thousand years
Of introspect
