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 the 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!

My Precious, relax, 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, 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 There.
