Pathways through Lent

When Stars Fall

Psalm 97, 99 1 Genesis 49:29–50:14 Corinthians 11:17–34  Mark 8:1–10

Anew

Illumined foreseers, the chronos advent An Eastern Star, few divined its portent

Magi and students of that sacred art Perceived at the eyes, an event horizon to start

In that eastern train all the stars of the universe fell Lesser the divinely royal due a traipse foretell

Retuned to life to undo their pagan spell Wreathed in the Holy Spirit with the Good News to tell In the realm of Cain the stars returned; fated as Abel

Clepsydrae sighed an ancient pantheon Predestined for Earth; forgiven anon

Anew

Revive our eternal city, Manticus Renew its power again; what have you?

Anew

Loxias: a specter recouped, when stars fell Not our power to tell

Anew

A venerable nullified one favored by Zeus Whose anguished stars’ flesh

Anew

A praetorian’s testimony gained arrows

Anew

A laurel trunk bound; target: trunk by arrows once held;

Anew

That power known before his star fell Rebirthed by sister; a star re-earthed under equal spell

Anew

Venerable exhorted a name once favored by Zeus

Anew

Cudgeled; cast into human soil Risen, unharmed by ministered sister

A star felled, too Anew

Both, without divine, into firmament; shine
