Deliverance is not
for me in renunciation. I feel the embrace
of freedom in a thousand bonds of delight.
Thou ever pourest
for me the fresh draught of thy wine of various colours and
fragrance, filling this earthen vessel to the brim.
My world will light
its hundred dfierent lamps with thy flame and place them before the
altar of thy temple.
No, I will never
shut the doors of my senses.
The delights of
sight and hearing and touch will bear thy delight.
Yes, all my
illusions will burn into illumination of joy, and all my desires
ripen into fruits of love.
