In Memoriam: Prince Philip, Our Strength and Stay

I, along with the world, was greatly saddened upon hearing of the passing of Prince Philip yesterday. A tremendously exceptional man, he lived a life full of extraordinary adventures. Handsome, and multi-faceted, he was a blessing to the Royal Family in a multitude of ways, not the least as the “strength and stay” of his wife, “Lilibet”, more well-known to the world as Queen Elizabeth II.

Upon watching a film clip of her speech from November, 1997, upon the 50th Anniversary of their wedding, the Queen said something about Prince Philip that inspired me:

”He is someone who doesn’t take easily to compliments but he has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years, and I, and his whole family, and this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim, or we shall ever know.“

In that moment, I knew the poem I would write, to commemorate his life, so well-lived.

Strength and Stay (Upon the Passing of Prince Philip)
Voxx Voltair © 2021

In the days of blooming youth
So long ago, that day
A young man entered, grand as truth
And promised he would stay

By the side of Lilibet
A strong and lovely girl
One he would not soon forget
One who would change his world

So in love, they shared their days
Traveling the miles
Sharing life, their lover’s phase
Was clear behind their smiles

Chivalrous, experienced in war
And now, in love
His duty, he gave all, and more
The bar he set, above

Upon his horse, this handsome man
Integrity, in name
He always worked, his perfect plan
And triumphed, every game

As lover, husband, stalwart friend
He fathered royal child
Daily life, did he attend
In good cheer, ever styled

He took his time to lend his hand
To nature’s needed cause
For children, creatures, and the land
He lobbied for God’s Laws

Still, quite human, sometimes he
Would garner wild applause
Speaking out so freely
Accepting of his flaws

Thru the years, his family
Knew good times, and the bad
Stalwart then, as ever he
Gave solace to the sad

Thru weddings, births and scandal
He never lost his way
He knew the way to handle
Every test, and what to say

And now, his lion’s heart has stopped
A century of life
One most likely, never topped
His love, the Queen — his wife

Prince Philip, Sir — you shall be missed
By everyone you knew
But, mostly by the wife you kissed
When love was young and new

We hope that you will Rest in Peace
We bless you, as we pray
Please know that you will always be
Our precious strength and stay

Prince Philip, may you Rest In Peace, knowing how much the world loved you. Thank you for your service to Britain through war, and times of darkness. You lead an exemplary life, which shall not soon be matched. ~Voxx~

Sir John Dee: Upon his 491st Birthday

July 13th, 2018 by Voxx

Today marks the 491st birthday of the legend, Sir John Dee. He was born in England on this day, in 1527, and died in 1609. During his life, he was a respected Astrologer, Mathematician, Alchemist and Magician, during an age when such forbidden subjects were punishable by execution.

From his working house in Mortlake, London, he was Royal Astrologer to Queen Elizabeth I, and wrote many learned treatises including The Monas Hieroglyphia, and developed the Enochian system of Angel Magick.

I have studied his Magickal system for many years, and can attest to its incredible efficacy. Feel free to contact me to learn more about this Magickal art, to which we owe a great spiritual debt to Sir John Dee for earthing its secrets to mankind.

Jeff Buckley: 17 Years Gone

May 29th, 2014 by Voxx

Copyright Voxx.Org 2000

Today marks the 17 year Anniversary of the untimely death of Jeff Buckley. On May 29th, 1997, Buckley dove into the Wolf River, a tributary of the Mississippi River, only to surface as a beautiful ghost.

At the time of his passing, I had only heard tales of his music and live performances from friends and clients. Oddly enough, time and again I went to record stores and wound up holding his CD in my hands, studying the covers — staring into his face. Still, each time I left the store without purchasing his music.

Once, after giving a Psychic Reading to Maynard James Keenan (the vocalist for the magickal music group Tool), he told me he was going to see Jeff play at the Troubador. I wanted to go, but for some reason, didn’t — much to my lasting regret.

Buckley Virgin: On June 4, 1997 I was at a KROQ concert with Nancy Berry (the former Vice-Chairman of Virgin Records) and several of her friends. A friend of Nancy’s, a singer named Christopher Shinn, offered to give me a ride to an after party at the Chateau Marmont, which I accepted.

On the drive back, Chris told me his favorite singer was Jeff Buckley. I felt at that point the Universe was definitely conspiring to get me to buy Buckley’s CD, and made a mental note to get it immediately, after Chris continued raving about it. In the car, Chris put on Jeff’s debut album, Grace, and played the track So Real. By the end of the song I was in tears, completely blown away by the sheer beauty of not only the music, but the power and sincerity of Jeff’s mighty, angelic voice. After the song was over, Chris said, “Yeah, it’s a real shame he’s gone.”

I couldn’t believe my ears. When I asked Chris what he meant, he explained that Jeff had mysteriously “disappeared”, and no one had seen him since he went swimming on the night of May 29th, (1997). I was devastated twice that night.

The next day I went out and bought a copy of Grace, and played nothing else (except for a little Satchel and Pigeonhed) for months. His music is that good.

Getting back to my story, 6 days after I first heard Jeff’s music, his lifeless body was found, floating on the banks of the Mississippi River, near Beale Street. The music world went into a period of mourning. Anybody who was familiar with his music was absolutely devastated by the news. The legend of Jeff Buckley was born.

There is much left to my story, but I’ll post the amazing details on my Magickal Forum as soon as I can.

For those of you who don’t know Jeff’s music, please visit Official Jeff Buckley Site for more about his life, and his music.

All I can say now is, Jeff — wherever you are, thank you for the music, the beauty that you shared with all of us, stuck down here without you.

“Now cracks a noble heart. Good night, sweet prince, And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!” (Shakespeare)
(- Horatio, Hamlet (V.ii.370-371).

Note: I created this special image, based on a photograph taken by Merry St. Cyr. It has since been posted everywhere, without the artists’ credit. So, now you know where it came from.
