“Heaven’s Little Whirlwind” – Poem

Heaven’s little whirlwind,

You steal joy

From the mercy of others

Who sought to lift you

Above their own strength,

And see you in length.

A form, so splendid,

And eyes, so much marveled, in the chase

Upon all Hellish ways

That Heaven cannot live without.

I have found what is beneath the flame,

And it is what you hide.

For you burn away cloth,

And I see the flesh, molten and strewn,

In the dimming sun.

I have found what they put away.

I have found what they knew to stay

As Heaven’s little whirlwind.

We are all beneath you,

You cradled joy.
