A Gift From Heaven - Poem by Alison Smith

They were created with perfection
But arrived before well baked
Sent to show the way
Searchers of another day
Nestled in our hearts
Never to be forgotten
Drawn now into dream
Revel in the knowing
The angels of adventure.

Arrived as a calm against the storm
Opening the changes around
They escaped this reality
Leaving a message of trust
Treat the coming for what it is
And explore the dream
For they where a gift from heaven

Simple the delight they gave
Melting the hearts around
Into sleep now taken
These tiny infants of the dream
They herald the changes within.

    I read the other comments in hopes that someone knew what this poem was about, because I had no clue. As I understand from the others its supposed to be about angels. I read the poem a couple more times and all you need to do is
    assume the angel reference is a metaphor and you've got a different poem. I suppose the others are right, but no one should ever have to spend any time
    at all doing this. That's the obvious problem. I won't even mention any others.
    That one is really big.I'll give it a 6.

    Duncan- I believe that perhaps the angels were created by God and arrived before the Big Bang theory or (the creation of the universe) .
    The angels might have been created before and far away before the big bang
    creation of the universe. Or the angels have been created and arrived before the end of the world and it's universe sending bad men and women into Hell with the Devil to be well baked. God bless all poets-MJG.

    Sorrowfully magnificient, my dear...The construction alone, smacks of mellifluousity
    The storyline, unfortunately, is sadly as it is well delivered...Afine job indeed, lass.
