When the Crescent of Midday arises
And the full Sun of Midnight so burns,
Star emerges, by Name α-Crisis –
That’s the Moment of blowing Horns.

In this Day Voice of Morning announces
To prepare and greet Evening Star,
Where Dark Matter with Light’s Spirit bounces
Through the Strings of celestial Harp.

All Angelic by Messengers’ Greeting
Revelation in Witnesses finds,
All the Opposite gathers on Meeting
To decide how influence Minds;

Feelings saddle for Riding Emotions,
Trusting Chariots never again,
And by Promises hunted Devotion
Falls in River of haunted Disdain.

Those Given get Sight for a Moment
In which blinded get those Deprived,
Every Name meets in Ignorance Omen,
Every Flame wants to here ignite.

It’s all Prophesy! Past in the Future
Timely Grammar’s revised by the Rules:
We of I – an approaching Feature
That will Purpose release from all Tools!..
