A maiden,
Hidden just beneath the grand oak,
Resting upon sleeves of bark,
Suddenly, she arises,
Trumpet at hand,
A beautiful figure struck the night sky,
With long legs and arms,
Veiled in a purple gown that danced and flowed with her.
Then, she blew her trumpet,
The night shook and tore,
The stars of the Heavens shone brighter.

Fallen and diseased is the earth,
Only acts of righteousness shall live on forever,
The earth growls and screams,
Dimming, dying,
Duller and duller,
Fading forever.

The author's comments:
Inspiration often comes at me by surprise. I decided to write, 'Angel of the Night' while I was taking out the garbage(hehe). What truly inspired me to write this piece was reading The Revelation of Jesus Christ in the Bible, and the book simply struck me as fascinating. My piece is loosely based on the Revelation of Jesus Christ. I hope that my work paints an image in the reader's mind, bringing them to the same place and making them see the same things I saw when I wrote this. I dedicate this to Jesus Christ, the Holy Son of God. Joseph Eason DeMono This will certify that the above work is completely original
