Myth (continued)

• • •

For what they saw was the eclipse of night,
a leak of the past, of a father’s might.
The hands of Destiny grasped at their hope
and tightened their joy like a noose of rope.

For there in the void engulfing all scope
was a pearl-blue emerging on a slope.
Diffusions of color, a glow of peace
infused the etherworld, its every crease.

Free to rejoice, the Creatures did not cease
to cheer the Prince and bid his reign increase.
The past now redeemed with the future unknown,
as for the present, Heav’n’s securely sown.
