Birthday Poem

The feast of St Thomas Aquinas

Banqueted in the celestial garden

By the Lethe, across the bridges

Between the earth and heaven –

There, Water-bearer of gods

Whose beauty enslaved the prince

To the passion of supreme desires

Served the guests from the universe –

Gods, goddesses, saints, angels, –

Escaped to his fancy of wishes

To return to the world, his Troy

That existed no more in this world

And spilled the stream of stars

From the jar that lusciously cascaded

Into the earth as radiant meteors

Becoming Mystery Aquarius Children.
