Tarot: One – The Magician

July 18, 2005

Within the Mage’s hands great powers flow.
His wand and finger join both earth and sky.
The card reads: as above then so below.

The magick he possesses comes aglow
from knowledge gained which others did descry:
within the Mage’s hands great powers flow.

His knowledge freely there for those who know
that mastery exists as will’s ally,
the card reads: as above then so below.

Infinity the sign upon his brow.
Upon his table, the four symbols lie.
Within the Mage’s hands great powers flow.

To see this strength within you start to grow –
Observe – there lies a path in you to try.
The card reads: as above then so below.

And now your road laid bare, depart and go!
Your power and determined thought apply!
Within the Mage’s hands great powers flow,
the card reads: as above then so below.


The second poem in the Tarot series, this one is focused on the Magician. The poem is written as a villanelle. Information on the Magician may be found here.
