Michaelmas gales assail the waning year,And Michaels scale is true, his blade is bright.<br/…

Michaelmas gales assail the waning year,
And Michaels scale is true, his blade is bright.
He strips dead leaves; and leaves the living clear
To flourish in the touch and reach of light. Archangel bring your balance, help me turn
Upon this turning world with you and dance
In the Great Dance. Draw near, help me discern,
And trace the hidden grace in change and chance. Angel of fire, Loves fierce radiance,
Drive through the deep until the steep waves part,
Undo the dragons sinuous influence
And pierce the clotted darkness in my heart. Unchain the child you find there, break the spell
And overthrow the tyrannies of Hell. —- Michaelmas Malcolm Guite  (B.1957) —- Graphic – Giovanni Gasparro  (B.1983)
