Swallowing the Ruins Whole

Every tear with its sting busied itself
Gathering from her past
They flew from fragmented piece to piece
Swallowing the ruins whole
The heavy millstones weighing down tiny bellies
Were no match for this resolute air squadron

They were heading to the wilderness to regurgitate her past
Regenerate cell by cell
Rebuild the Lost City
Restore the Land of Milk and Honey
Reclaim the holy and the sacred
Reinforce with cedar's resin

*According to Jack Tresidder's dictionary of symbols, resin signifies immortality, a symbolism based on the 
popular belief that resin is the undying spirit of long-living trees.)
