Flame keeper/seeker
Fire spreader/eater
She keeps the company of ghosts
In a nest of ash and bones
They tried to tame her/claim her
Pulling her by the plumes
But her will cannot be contained
A goddess crowned with flames
She represents peace and prosperity
A rare symbol of hope in days of antiquity
But those who dared to get close
Danced with the fire of their funeral pyre
For neither flesh nor armor could endure
The embrace of the fire bird
So she lives a life of solitude
Talons and flame her only verisimilitude
Fire spreader/eater
Flame keeper/seeker
Rise from the ashes, your spirit renewed
