Gaze upon the golden boughs reaching up to sky!
Mark how seeded blossoms blaze, a miracle of fire!
Three go east, three go west
At a lofty king’s behest,
Pure heart beaten, for the best,
Six to flank a spire.

Look upon the mighty shield now guarding in a land
Once willed within a missive to a father’s fertile band.
Seven brothers mark the week,
Eight the magic days to keep,
Frame to form what prophets meet,
It’s mission but a stand.

Spoiler for Is the first stanza


The second was very familiar to me, but you'll see why in a minute. ;)

Spoiler for Seven brothers

Spoiler for Eight magic days

Spoiler for ...so the second stanza is


Feel free to tell me if I'm even close, but this is what my first instincts are telling me.
