The Phoenix

Rise oh bird of fire,
Rise from your nest,
For there is a cry for help abroad.
Fly with your wings of flames
Through the blackening sky
Burn the clouds,
With the tips of your fiery feathers.

Rise oh bird of fire,
Shed a tear and heal
Sing a deep grieving song
In your echoing beauty—
Tell a tale of woe.
Then cry out once more
In your throaty song
And give another tear.
Battle the poison
Deep within the veins
Your power is ever greater
Cry one last drop.

Rise oh bird of fire,
And you shall heal
Your job is done
Return to your perch
In song
And burn away

Rise oh bird of fire,
In the ashes
You remain
Forever singing
That woeful song,
Your job is done.

Rise oh bird of fire,
For you are reborn.
Hatching once again,
Rising from your nest,
Flying with your wings of flames,
Through the blackening sky
Burning the clouds,
With the tips of your fiery feathers.
