The Rose and the Cross

This song is by Romowe Rikoito and appears on the album Āustradēiwa (2005).

Out of the seething cauldron of my woes
Where sweets and salt and bitterness I flung
Where charmed music gathered from my tongue
And where I chained strange archipelagoes
Of fallen stars; where fiery passion flows
A curious bitumen; where among
The glowing medley moved the tune unsung
Of perfect love: thence grew the Mystic Rose
Its petals of divided light
Its leaves of the most radiant emerald
Its heart of fire like rubies. At the sight
I lifted up my heart to God and called:
How shall I pluck this dream of my desire?
And lo! there shaped itself the Cross of Fire!
