Inspirated by B. W. Yeats with a Nod to C. S. Lewis

Turning and turning in a widening gyre
The falcon hears the falconer;
Things fall into place, the centre holds;
Mere Christianity is loosed upon the world,
The blood of the lamb is offered;
The ceremony of innocence bathes all;
The best are full of passionate intensity;
The worst lack all conviction.

Revelations are at hand.

Inspiration from Yeat's The Second Coming

The Queen of Peace!
How perfect,
and just what the world needs
so desperately...
She is here,
for those who have eyes to see her.
