Pageant

 
An endless carousel it seems    
in this masquerade of dreams
where wanton pucks and phantoms stray †  
and shadows dance against the sun † †
†  
But every flicker is a flame †  
fervent vision in the veins † †
torches through illusionís bend †  
broken becomes whole again † †
† †
This carnival shall some day end † †
veneer and paint will peel away †  
revealing who is foe or friend † †
night will scatter from the day † †
 
Even day will need no sun † †
streaming Heavenís light above † †
everlasting radiance and love †  
† †
