The Dark Angels

The dark angels with blue flames
like fire-flowers in their black hair
know the answers to wonderful blasphemer's
  questions -
and perhaps they  know where the foot-bridge
from the deep of night to the light of day -
and perhaps they know the harbour of unity -
and perhaps in their Father's house there is
a clear abode, which has their name.
