The 6th House

August 7, 2016

Another traveller awaits us,
Wandering nude in fields of wheat
With dark, charcoal skin and eyes
Like mercury: silver and deadly.

This one is careful, knowing
What you will ask before you do:
Her wisdom in all things is
Unmistakably sound.

This daughter of Apollo has
Appeared in a thousand tales
In a thousand lifetimes, but
None of them do her justice.

With her return, she heralds
A new golden age of peace.
