Gleaming in the sphere of creation

Through a captain’s spyglass

You are seen

Out on the horizon

A monument of ascendancy

 

From these waters rise

Sirenic songs

Yet we shall not touch

The phalanx of the rocks

 

O’ Sibylline cascade

A downward flowing

Stream of oracle

 

We approach the misted harbor

A cathedral signals

Its spiring minstrel venerated

 

A bell tolls and resounds across

The Apollonian hued sky

 

A bright and fiery

Rise and fall

For those who seek

To outshine the Sun

Death will have its coin
