A Thousand Hours

He poured into fifty pages

Into depths of myth & legend

Hammers struck metals

Sparks few at the forge

And Daedulus stood back

Admiring his labyrinth

Deep in its coils

Known only to adepts

The secret elixir golden

Distilled from Angel Breath

Where clouds defined

The omissions of mortals.

Oh give us this day

Our daily manna

And may poets all

Bow in honor

To artisans of equal effort

The pen moves on

The history is writ

Time consumes our art.
