Dark Angel's Prayer
----------------------------
(Extracted from the Posts of Poem
Elizabeth and Anthony by Dark Angel)


spiriting above the mountains high      
singing song and prayer he flies          
to fight and slay all mortal gloom      
Dark Angels prayer, sung for two
                                        
his golden sword in sheath by side      
and eternities torch, he carries high    
the flame of life, he'll pass to you    
to light the night of passing gloom      
                                        
so harken to his prayer of love          
a messenger of God, the lord above,      
and sing his gift of comfort tonight    
Dark Angel's prayer a beacon of Light.

I like how you've written this, Parker. Your word choices, phrasings, allusions...very nicely done.

"his golden sword in sheath by side      
and eternities torch, he carries high    
the flame of life, he'll pass to you    
to light the night of passing gloom "

I love this stanza, and really enjoy your writing.

Thank you Meadowmuse, its sort of a rewrite of the "Winter Moon" somewhere way back in the posts, done from a different perspective.

Dark, It was really you poem to Elizibeth and Anthony that sparked it.. thanks for that, it was a very caring and special poem you wrote.

Thanks Marge, Dark Angel's poem was very good kinling for the fire.
