Orphic rites

Master on the deft strings
Melodic breath, shrill then piercing
The tender song of thy return
More human than human voice
Unattainable, acknowledged king of all
Tears quivering beneath the eyes
We are disassembled, unnatural coughs
Cosmic vision closing, eyes still folding
The songs end in thundering floods
Of scalding light, wonder and delight
