An Ode To The Phoenix - Poem by Danny Speicher

Oh Phoenix of old, how could we forget you?
With your wings of fire and eyes all ablaze
In your stride, horrors and joys of earlier days
How awesome, how majestic is your form, so true.

Oh, there are times when your light goes dim awhile
Your majesty is veiled by the sting of defeat
But, never from your eyes is life fully deplete
Of all creatures you know rebirth is worthwhile

So, fight on, fly high and, elevated, remind
Those who once rode proudly alongside your warpath
Of the strength and fear held in a firebird’s wrath
And the hope it can spur for the best of mankind

Oh Phoenix of old, we’ll remember you always
And, take, with us, your flame to set our world ablaze
