Beyond Nine Lives

The Gargoyles Of Notre Dame

Beyond Nine Lives
              The Gargoyles Of Notre Dame
 
Nine lives in gothic art stained glasses of cats lair lie
Scroll works of remembrances stenciled in sarcophagi
 
Change and resurrection the nine lives of spiritually healing cat
Magical solitary soul God’s beautiful precious gift mankind got
 
Sad are the gargoyles in Our Lady gothic ribbed vaulted cathedral
Nine centuries of rebirth core brought down Paris church principal
 
The spirit of humanity magical as that of the mystic feline
Will resurrect the ashes the dusts from yonder east end
 
Sculpt to apse to altar rib vaults to spire as sure as the sun rises again
God’s gift of life rekindles embers this time beyond nine lives will attain
 
The  ecclesiastical spirit of the muted frozen guardians of time
Of history and religions and God’s cathedrals again is sublime
