POEMS ABOUT ANGELS


Song playing is "Angels Among Us"

Angel

An Angel?

I figure you're some spirit,
Come to visit in the flesh
Such a rough day, anyway
I need a little bit of divinity to see me through.
Funny you should come by though
Remember how I wouldn't read "The Littlest Angel"
Because angels aren't spirits of the dead
But their own class of Divine Creation?

I assume you've read Dante
Or at least perused the St. James Bible.
Lucifer was the juiciest of the angels, God's favorite
Full of hubris which got him into no end of trouble.

You aren't Lucifer, you say?
Just some garden variety Seraph here on a lark
To remind me of the otherworldliness 
Of the universe, nothing more.
OK, to you I say : "Thank You Very Much!"

I am grateful to leave the tiny world behind
To glimpse something brighter than
This morning's headlines.
So spread your rainbow wings
And take a piece of my soul to wait
In a better place.
