The Winged Angels

The Winged Angels

Doves, the flitting symbols of our spirits,

            are sold to the devil for a few silver coins

He would redeem them

            to home and free the winged angels

Who repay sacrifice

            with loving service.


Inspired by a story about St. Francis of Assisi freeing some doves being sold at a market
