216, Safe in their Alabaster Chambers - Version 1


Written Text

Safe in their Alabaster Chambers —

Untouched by Morning —

and untouched by noon —

Sleep the meek members of the Resurrection,

Rafter of Satin and Roof of Stone —

Grand go the Years,

In the Crescent above them —

Worlds scoop their Arcs —

and Firmaments — row —

Diadems — drop —

And Doges surrender —

Soundless as Dots,

On a Disk of Snow.
