‘A Vision at the Portal of Elysium’ by Ed ‘Bear’ C.U. Lewis The Society June 1, 2013 Poetry I saw him standing at the gate of heaven. It was in a dream, but seemed so real I was in awe. Behind him in my vision all was white and lit. Dear reader, though hard to believe, I truly saw this most magnificent of men. He was all shine and smiling, like he was inviting me to draw close, come. His costume draped upon his body fine. He was so beautiful he blazed from head to toe. He seemed so good, o, dark of skin, but pure, divine. I wondered what it was that made his body glow. I longed to enter in that lovely infinite. I wanted so to join him there in all that glow.
