Earthbound this husk that I call me
Container for what once flew free
Not bound by laws of gravity
Nor with these eyes of mine did see

Once did I see through eyes of grace
As I stood in His holy place
Beheld with awe His perfect face
Before the dawn of human race

Sometimes I think I see Him still
His voice my heart and mind does fill
Instruct's me as I do His will
Provides me with unearthly skill

He guards me with celestial might
Reveals to me the path of right
Gives me the strength and will to fight
Pervasive evil, mankind's blight

My goal His kingdom to restore
For eighty years or so before
I shall knock upon His door
To be transformed and fly once more

True, as I too await the hour of the banal transformation for which alchemists have laboured years untold, turning base lead into gold.

A beautiful world, beautifully portrayed! Your sense of rhythm and word-choice was superb.

Thank you all for your kind words... I hadn't thought of this as one of my best yet it got better response than any I have posted! Just goes to show you, you shouldn't be your own critic... that's what everyone else is here for right?
