Light...


Crystal waters the flow and ebb...
The roll roll roll of a stone so dead
the Butterfly flown into a Spidersweb
the corrupted one once so white and pure
eenzy weenzy Spider with your web to allure...

In a tabernakel the corrupt crying for pardon please
the Spider laughs at her on her knees
one more round before I give the keys...
the light the light its fading fast
the dark the dark its shadow cast
Butterfly Butterfly don't struggle no more
look closely closely you'll find the door...
just GO before dark midnight fall
and never again the dawn will call...

Butterfly... Butterfly... fly back home
Pappilon... Pappilon... is the way youve grown
Spider Spider climb back up your spout
down came the rain and washed the spider out
out came the sun to dry the rain
for big and small spiders to crawl out again
but the Black butterfly with broken wing
is flying flying to where the angels sing...

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
