Jacob's Ladder Soup

Jacob’s Ladder
Mythological Facts

Obeying his father and mother,
Jacob fled his brother
To take a wife
First night out,
A stone for his pillow,
Asleep in the desert
He dreamt:
Feet on earth and head in heaven,
A ladder, angels flowing
Axis mundi
God spoke
Jacob woke
Bethel=House of God
He blessed the stone, his pillow,
And made for his life
