MINSTREL OF THE SUN, by            
First Line: By sum of vowels and consonants
Last Line: She's minstrel of the sun.


By sum of vowels and consonants
I could not call her name.
Yet always I can see her face
Wherever there is flame.

When I watch clouds that burn away
Along the edge of night,
Tripping she comes down flickering lanes
And dances in the light.

She wore the colors tamed by him
Who was the god of fire.
Logi was present at her birth.
His gift was wild desire.

She feared the quiet of the dark
And laughed when lightning flashed
To break the calm. She clapped her hands
When thunder rolled and crashed.

Though now she lies where dark winds blow
And shadowy webs are spun,
Her spirit dwells in light, and still
She's minstrel of the sun.
