The Flame

Song of Solomon 8:6,7 

There is a Flame

That burns intense,

Unquenched

By many dark waters,

Fuelled by divine passion,

Ceaseless, vehement, unspent

 

There is a Flame

That burns ardent,

Kindled by Love Himself

Before Light danced

In Eden’s garden,

Or humanity drew breath

 

There is a Flame

That burns transcendent,

Of which all other flames

Are but shadows,

And all earth’s lovers cameos

To its unyielding intent

 

There is a Flame

That burns eternal,

Fanned by God’s pure Breath,

Held  In Love’s Being

Raging from Eternity past

Within Beloved’s breast

 

There is a Flame

That burns contagious,

Ignited by Heaven’s embrace

On souls courageous,

Surrendering ever to its

Costly blaze

 

There is a Flame

That burns unchanged,

Beyond the reach of time or age

There is an all consuming Flame,

And I,

Its glad captive
