Life struck


As down the stair tripped Christabel
Christabel she tripped and fell.

Her thought being set on death and birth
Each paradox had its pennyworth

But careless she forgot to care
And now to sit she dare not dare.

She tripped and down to earth she fell
A short sharp shock for Christabel.

Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
