What Shall I Send But An Envelope Of Stars

what shall I send but an envelope of stars
a box of the sun
then you will have radiance until

Kingdom Come

wherever your path winds

a rubied thread to guide you
through the labyrinthine mines

and time ticking the snows away

into the Divine
or should I send slippers

winged, thrice dipped in the Beyond the wing

of an enchanted bird
that your footsteps should

not tread the earth

in time of war or conundrum
or salve of roses

to heal the wintering scar

unstoppered flowers
where the sorrows are
