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.
