Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, the egg of the phoenix.
Beauty in this Iron Age must turn From fluid living rainbow shapes to torn And sootened fragments, ashes in an urn On whose gray surface runes are traced by a Norn Who hopes to wake the Future to arise In Phoenix -fashion, and to shine with rays To blast the sight of modern men whose dyes Of selfishness and lust have stained our days...philip josé farmer

First in the ranks see Joan of Arc advance, The scourge of England and the boast of France! Though burnt by wicked Bedford for a witch , Behold her statue plac'd in glory 's niche; Her fetters burst, and just releas'd from prison, A virgin Phoenix from her ashes risen.
When fame 's loud trump hath blown its noblest blast, Though long the sound, the echo sleeps at last; And glory , like the Phoenix midst her fires , Exhales her odours, blazes, and expires.

Now I will believe That there are unicorns ; that in Arabia There is one tree , the Phoenix' throne, one Phoenix At this hour reigning there.
There'll be that crowd, that barbarous crowd, through all the centuries, And who can say but some young belle may walk and talk men wild Who is my beauty's equal, though that my heart denies, But not the exact likeness, the simplicity of a child, And that proud look as though she had gazed into the burning sun, And all the shapely body no tittle gone astray. I mourn for that most lonely thing; and yet God 's will be done: I knew a Phoenix in my youth, so let them have their day .
Now I will believe That there are unicorns; that in Arabia There is one tree , the Phoenix' throne, one Phoenix At this hour reigning there.
