This House of Velvet Stars.


This house of velvet stars,
this panoply of angels,
that winking from afar,
safeguards one from all dangers.

Their wings a tender fold,
a hallowed space in time,
a shield against all evil,
for those who bear the sign.

Sign of the seal of heaven,
from the Master up above,
that of three times seven:
rune of everlasting love,

known only to the meek
whose selfless application
the Father doth so seek
to grant them salvation.

Inflation of the heart
and interest on kind deeds
was ever frowned upon
by He-Who-Sees-All.

To perdition and begone,  thou,
who wouldst forget this law:
with the shovel of thy greed
shalt dig thine owne grave.
