Stricken angel

The air is clearer up here
can almost taste it,
heaven knows..
just above the stair
where skeins of rope-like hair
lie still
festering..
all in neat rows.  

Why was it to be? cast down, why?
Here where they don't dream
of flying or understand 
the simple rites..
the good in dying.

Years now I wallow among them,
though the forest still knows me.
Trying a smile on, first in eons  
the rivers too..
they remember 'fore the dark modesty  
the arches in light and artistry..

There'll come a time Lazarus..,
Aye,
when they won't heed 
or recognize
nor longer find need 
in us.

And all the clocks unchimed
will turn back to begin
again...

Much to gleam in this discourse, Richard. Your vocabulary shines: Here where they don't dream of flying or understand the simple rites..the good in dying. And all the clocks unchimed will turn back to begin again...
