My Pay It Forward Thursday pick this week is from Eric Syrdal, who never fails to capture my imagination.

My Sword and Shield....

She was born in the bow wake
of a E minor chord

that draws my spirit down
into the depths of its power
and there
I am released from the shackles
of this world

at her altar
I pray for her intercession
that with teeth and tongue
she interpose her divinity
between my mortal shell
and the hostilities of this place
wrapped in the armor of her voice
ever to trust in her
to deliver me
from that
