Uriel, Angel of Flame

Feel the embrace of fire and rejoice
You are free at last angel of flame
Let your purifying embrace take us in whole
Bring to us your pure kiss
And free the sinners from their torment-

Hail Uriel! Lord of purification and bringer of flame!

Lightning strikes a forest
on the edge of a savanna -

Antelope watch
beneath acacia
like ghosts of the mud
as an ape dips a branch
into the blaze
and holds it aloft
