The God Smiles

A bit of a story about Celtic magic derived from a much larger story:

Nouk Land - Totem In A Ghost Wolf

The God Smiles
by Michael Doyle

The God smiles in sanctification
Blessing His love in its purification
Lessons taught in the Garden's tending
Such is the face worn in its pretending

Demons drive the rage we keep inside
While pretending otherwise with great pride
All of the pretense that we burn
Are lessons still greater than we'll learn

Elsewhere, a sleepy village wakes at dawn
Wishing only for life and peace to go on
Death wakes to life from burning embers
While the wolf peers out from the timbers
