by Susie Gharib

Published in Issue No. 278 ~ July, 2020

It slumbers beneath a yew on the Allt,

unstained by sectarian blood,

pensively waiting for the Usk’s swan.


It holds eternity within its heart,

a Hermetic wand

to reshape the world.


It scintillates without a spark,

endowing each lark

with a seal of light.
