Saint Celia

Is her devotion
And martyrdom
A stake driven into the ground?
Is it a beneficent deity who kisses your strings with glassy faith?
Was she afraid to die?
She cites the famed sacred chord,
For David would have loved her if he had had the chance.
He would have laid down in surrender, sacrificial, and confident.
This union is blessed.
Lawful, it will please the Lord.
“I am grateful and joyous. I have this gift to share with everyone.”
