The Beautiful " Birds of Paradise " from the equally beautiful Christina Rossetti

From the Pen of Christina Rossetti :

GOLDEN-WINGED
  -  SILVER-WINGED

A Bird of
Paradise from the Jennifer Lynns Timeless Jewelry
Collection
Birds of Paradise


Golden-winged, silver-winged,   
           Winged with flashing flame,
Such a flight of birds I saw,             
Birds without a name :
Singing songs in their own tongue -
      Song of songs - they came.

One to each other calling        
Each answering each,    
One to another calling            
In their proper speech :
High above my head they wheeled,
Far out of reach.

On wings of flame they went and came  
With a cadenced clang :     
Their silver wings tinkled,
Their golden wings rang ;  
The wind it whistled throug their wings
   Where in heaven they sang.

      They flashed and they darted
Awhile before mine eyes,
Mounting, mounting, mounting still,    
 In haste to scale the skies,
Birds without a nest on earth,                
  Birds of Paradise.                 

Where the moon riseth not
Nor sun seeks the west,      
There to sing their glory      
Which they sing at rest,       
   There to sing their love-song
  When they sing their best :-

Not in any garden               
That mortal foot hath trod,
Not in any flowering tree                         
       That springs from earthly sod,
But in the garden where they dwell,     
The Paradise of God.       
   
the
Beautiful Bird of Paradise
