What a wonder of a bird?
When of it my ears heard
My eyes could not hide their admiration.

You are the Phoenix
That lived the years of unlimited matrix
For dying is your resurrection.

You are the Bennu
That's what Egypt calls you
For awe is your firing unction.

You are the Hou-ou
The Japanese result of your thought through
Magnificent is the gaze of your attention.

You are the Feug- Hang
Your christened Chinese lang
The miracles of your dying section.

You are the Garuda
The Indiana sight of your wonder
Great is the cycle of your procession.

The insignia of a Rebirth
The emblem of change on our path.

Death is not the end
A bright beginning lend
The theme of the sun
A gift of a father to a son.

More than a myth
Or a speak of a legend
It is the defeat of death...
A might for anyone to ascend.
