what sweet delight that in me fills my soul
when spring comes surging through my being whole
what fate so sweet no lover could ask more
than but to lie in lover’s arms in peace
more full yet than the warmth of Ra’s hot core.
ah, sleep! that slumber of eternal bliss
such dreams as are awaken by your kiss
that but does serve to send me spinning off
like meteor’s flight in heav’nly galaxies
leave trails of light and stardust in the skies
to gently settle in my lover’s eyes
full so with sparkle of unearthly light.
ah, sweet in me, what godly-filled delight
those silver threads that run into a million nights!
