My wandering, what purpose does it serve?
I desire that fervor;
That eternal flame that cannot be quenched, unless,
Unless I behold your Glory!
But what then, most Holy of Holies?
Will my spirit be quenched in seeing the passing of heavenly forms?
Alas, no, even as the cold make lesser the warm,
I must lodge with you in Paradise; high into the Heavens as eagles soar
There, ah yes, there my spirit will be quenched evermore
So I devote my heart and mind to seeking both wisdom and folly:
Studying the depths of your Nature, with spirit, not carnally
Until I serve as your acolyte in the Paradise, everlasting…more. Amen.
