Such Loveliness, As This The Wine glass shattered and I fell into a dizzying world ... I saw myself making Love with you, when there arose a most Beautiful Sight and this Surprise disclosed to me a delicious quiet A taste so sweet, beyond sweetness true, my blunted tongue could barely receive Inside, while as dark as Night, together, I first heard your whisper I who had sought you, to me you spoke, "And did you not know I so sought you, too?" I started to reply, stammering so awestruck; but wordlessly you said,"Hush! listen, my Love, relax, as words lighted the way to my bed, Silence will now lead you to my Heart." And so I did rest, and rest the more, in your arms with mind asleep and Love awake in Love
Friends, see, your thoughts a sacrament of grace; now, only Silence will undress such Loveliness as This
There is such a fall, into such a world, Fortunate are those who find themselves lost Here, in Love
