Snallygaster

What be you – lizard, bird,
living angel of the Word?
or demon dwelling in dark night?

Are you predator, are you prey,
the words you snarl – what do they say?
demons dwelling in dark night,
they, too, were born in light.

Snallygaster, in the skies,
with serpent neck and purpled eyes,
just a beast, neither great nor least,
and dwelling only in the mind.
