Seven Gifts of the Skygods

Seven Gifts of the Skygods

They descended from the heavens,
riding winged beasts that breathed fire.

Their eyes had turned night into day.

To the fathers of seven tribes
they each bestowed a gift.

“You are our chosen people.” They said.
“Put your faith in us and you shall inherit the earth.”

And though they spoke in strange tongues
that echoed like thunder,
our hearts understood every word.
