Borne on a torrent sea of seer’s fire,
Clairvoyance bellowed from old Oorpah’s
Her eyes revolving with sightless desire
To be the mouthpiece of Yahvo’s

And soothe his cry with noble recommend:
“Great King, Great Leader, Hail!”

Beneath which each new monarch would attend
His empire’s birth and make prophetic
In hopes of greatness. Weep not that the hand

From vital fountains!—yet civil unrest,
Cruel-seeming fate, tossed Koreen, queen, and
Unborn on to the ruddy lake. Each blast
Of war-wind almost rent their
Propelling them towards the
Towards safety. And, as prophesy foretold,

Reclaim the crown, and overwhelm the war.

For it was this prophetic
king who taught
From violent Root shall New
Start be born out.
