Default Revision...PLEASE..ideas for a title???

A face withered and worn from eternity
Radiating wisdom with the swaying of a transparent robe
Billowing in the evening breeze
With a thunderous but inexplicably calm voice,
God commanded,
“Oh, innocent mockingbirds, paired youthful forever,
Bear not what tempts your soul but turn away
For all eternity rests upon your chosen deed
And its origin cannot be undone,
Nor can you be pardoned
It is I, alone, who shed a tear
From a spirited and tethered visage
Gazing earthward toward your wings.”

At a moment’s pause, wings take flight from
Serpentine vines luring each to totter
With a decisive pierce, souls robbed of righteousness
While wings, now hands, are tarnished
Perched now below your nest
No longer capable of flight

My sorrow heeds your judgment
Making eternal your call
Once mockingbirds, now no longer harnessed
With sublime holiness, rather now mortal
Don these garments, for thou shall not be naked
And set forth away from the Oasis of the Lord
Till the fields from which you were contrived
Do not return to this place
For you will pass into oblivion
At the hands of an angel
Brandishing a scimitar of devouring flames
