She came to me in the simple dress of love, and her eyes said, Lie with me for I am beautiful; the breeze put down its leaves and listened, clouds slowed, the evening blushed. She grasped my chest then snatched her hand away whereupon that sullen child, my self, turned towards her face which seemed to say, Give me your heart, I live for nothing else! Hearing this, my heart, all needy, rushed towards that source of loveliness and light so that I gasped and cried out, Desperate and without heart, who now will give me life? Bringing me gently to her breasts she sighing whispered, I will, for I am your heart.
