St James Hampton

Updated: Aug 4, 2023

Out of kitchen foil and boards he built the throne of God

Not one but many thrones

Until he could fill a whole room

with thrones and crowns and shrines

They glisten and shimmer in immaculate gold and silver

With the most intricate designs

of angels leaning over

carried by faith and spirit

Where eagle wings are angel wings

For he is a son of God

A son of America

A son of Africa

Amid the stars

Above the throne of God he writes,

“Fear Not”

Words that could only be carved by hands

That know true faith

And a vision of the immaculate
