Sings the celestial phoenix-raiser
Rekindling the fire of life
Rousing the stones on graves
Resuscitating drooping petals
Rising like a nascent dawn
Flowering forth as a rainy day
Drizzling rhymes of bygone lives
Startling a slumbering soul
With effusive elemental music
His voice is that of a gurgling brook
His chants, the deep haunting night
His lyrics, are those of enchantment
His song, a song of silence..

The phoenix-raiser sings
A song for the living dead
A quiver moistens the senses
With tears no human ever shed.

I break out like a dream,
In the corner of your eye…
Rippling across your pearly tears
I ascend with a song.

Hark! Thou art a Phoenix!
Rise,rise from the ashes
Spread,spread thy prismatic wings
Rain resplendence a thousand hues
Like a brilliant beatific stroke
Tinge thoughts with a thirst to live
Flood forth like torrents of passion
Sing, sing like a secret sigh
Swell like an intense longing
Surge up like a desire
Live Breathe Rise!

The phoenix-raiser sings
A song for the living dead
A quiver moistens the senses
With tears no human ever shed.

I wake up like the dawn
In the horizon of your deep…
Emerging erasing the blue night
I blossom with a song.

Dream! Thou art a Phoenix!
Germinate in hell’s inferno
Fire a mere warm breath, Wither not!
Metamorphose, ethereal keeper of love
Heal hearts, mystic symbol of life
Radiate, ray of light
Shatter the invisible domes of misery
Soar, soar circling the tombs of your past
Fly, fly with undaunted spirit
Into the iridescent future
Live Breathe Rise!

The phoenix-raiser sings
A song for the living dead
A quiver moistens the senses
With tears no human ever shed..
