Paper cranes

It was the fall of ascension
Something beyond comprehension

Somewhere beyond the grave
Where the ravens crave

The dance of the reaper
Entered my mind like a creeper

I entertained it to the utmost
Loving the spell of the bewitching host

Then you arrived at this gala event
Sat in the corner like you were meant

Taking paper squares
With great care

Folding and molding dreams
Banishing the means

Creating paper cranes
Like the sun after the rain

You gave a thousand or more
To fly at my core

Sending power in presence
Shifting the cadence
