Angels are undeniably associated with religion and more usually Christianity, Islam and Judaism. Often they are seen as supernatural beings, benevolent celestial intermediaries interposed between God, Heaven and humanity.They are protectors, our heavenly guides, and the servants of God. They are also His Messengers. The faithful seek their blessing, their help. A visitation is a miraculous event, filled with reverence, awe and shared with the wider community as a sign that faith has reward.Other religions also make note of angelic contributions including Sikhism and Zoroastrianism. There is also the unnerving distinction that there are 'fallen Angels' that seep dark, malevolent forces into the world. They tempt, they betray, they lead us where it is not safe to go.But faith once more resolves the dilemma; good will overcome evil. And whether a believer or not, there is a comfort that the angels of our hearts are the ones of love, of care and compassion.Obviously there are complications, a fact that our classic poets through the centuries, including Alexander Pope, Edmund Spenser, Radclyffe Hall and Hafiz, use as they write verse to explain, to reveal and to help us understand exactly why Angels are so prevalent amongst our thoughts. - 1 - The Poetry of Angels - An Introduction2 - I Felt an Angel by Anonymous3 - The Angel by William Blake4 - The Angel's Visit by Charlotte L Forten Grimke5 - The Angels by Rainer Maria Rilke6 - The Woman and the Angel by Robert William Service7 - The Man to the Angel by George William Russell8 - Ex Ore Infantium by Francis Thompson9 - The Child Angel by Rabindranath Tagore10 - A Poem for Children with Thoughts On Death by Jupiter Hammon11 - The Guardian Angel by Robert Browning12 - The Angel's Message by Clara Ann Thompson13 - Angels From the Realms of Glory by James Montgomery14 - Wondrous Sight For Men and Angels by Ann Griffiths15 - The Ministry of Angels by Edmund Spenser16 - The Angels of Man by Bliss Carman17 - The Two Angels by Radclyffe Hall18 - My Sweet Crushed Angel by Hafiz19 - Two or Three Angels by Stephen Crane20 - The Lost Chord by Adelaide Anne Proctor21 - Israfel by Edgar Allan Poe22 - The Song of the Seven Archangels by Ernest Rhys23 - The Angel by Mikhail Yuryevich Lermontov24 - To.... by James Monroe Whitfield25 - Angels Everywhere by Rosa Mulholland26 - An Angel in the House by James Henry Leigh Hunt27 - The Angel That Presided by William Blake28 - A Cradle Song by W B Yeats29 - Playmates by Emily Dickinson30 - Once in a Saintly Passion by James Thomson31 - To Rosemary, on the Methods by Which She Might Become an Angel by Stephen Vincent Benet32 - It Was Wrong To Do This, Said the Angel by Stephen Crane33 - Angels, in the Early Morning by Emily Dickinson34 - The Angel and the Clown by Vachel Lindsay35 - Behind the Scenes.
