Ode to The Eternal Flame. A Dedication to Erthfrend

Eternal Flame


O Flame of the Eternal, come!

Burn your sweet-scented candle in my Spirit, and

Awaken the Olympian in my Core.

O Pinnacle of supernal radiance, come!

Dance gleefully in my Heart;

Ignite the birthless and deathless Comforter,

In each fading hope.

Light! More Light, my Beautiful Flame!

You bring the moon down in my darkness;

Stir Delight in the sunset of each new horizon.

Like a beacon, you glimmer in the seeds of Faith;

Motivate the lethargic, to dutiful work.

Come, cute flame, ever-aspiring sanctity of the Soul.

May your effulgence glisten on the crimson tide,

To carry my boat, to the golden shores of immortality.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. ┬ęCopyrighted, 29th June, 2015.
