Poem: "A Star on Fire" (Part 3 / 3, "Ad Meliora")


A Star on Fire
Ad Meliora Part III
By: Eve Estelle

Burning, burning, everburning --
O sovereign sun, the key espied
Unlocks the vault, and beyond all lies
The Azure Run, the lights of liberty;
Ad meliora.

Free to reach,
Free to fall,
Free to breathe, and breathe it all;
My own, the sky, my sandbox and sea --
Once wade through night, is granted thee.

Along solid ground and anchored earth,
In good faith borne a crystal flow;
Here shalt judge an eye to see
What lies above, too lies below.


Author's note: "Ad Meliora" is the collective title for a three-part series of poems. Check out the other two below!

    1. Ahhhh, thank you so much, Maria! For your kind words, for commenting, and for visiting. I'm thrilled you liked this! :) Poetry is absolutely fantastic. Always enjoyed it -- but never so much as I do these days. I am actually considering publishing a collection! It's on hold, at the moment, though. You can find the (sparse) details on that here, if you'd like! :)

      Of course! It was my pleasure, and I'll certainly be back (I apologize in advance, however; I'm really bad at keeping up with everybody!!). I've returned your awesome follow on both of your blogs!

      Can't wait to see you around! I sincerely appreciate it. Thank you again!
