Lord of the Fires
Lord of the fires of the mountains that shake the foundations of the Earth.
Master of the Hammer that beats iron into submission.
God of the glowing red forge.
The knots in your muscles pain you.
The burns on your skin disfigure you.
The pain in your bones bends you.
Lord of the flames that produce bronze.
Master of the tongs to hold it.
God of creation in metal.
Your fall from the heights of heaven shook you.
Your mother’s hatred pushed you.
Your eternal skill redeemed you.
