    Love speak from its nest of silence.
  18. I swear, since seeing Your face,
    the whole world is fraud and fantasy
    The garden is bewildered as to what is leaf
    or blossom. The distracted birds

    a presence more beautiful than venus or the moon,
    a beauty whose image fills the mirror of the heart.
  19. I came with many knots in my heart,
    like the magician’s rope.You undid them all at once.
    I see now the splendor of the student
    and that of the teacher’s art.

    Love and this body sit inside your presence,
    one demolished, the other drunk.

    We smile. We weep, tree limbs
    turning sere, then light green.

  20. Die! Die! Die in this love!
    If you die in this love,Your soul will be renewed.
    Die! Die! Don’t fear the death of that which is known
    If you die to the temporal, You will become timeless.
