507. Heart-light, body-night

I am all fear
When I see my body-night
Behind my heart-light.
My body-night can easily
Capture me and devour me
If I fail to run with my heart-light.

I have no fear
When I see my heart-light
Behind my body-night.
I tell my body-night that
Since I am a slow runner
I shall run only with my heart-light,
And I flatter my body-night
Into maintaining its own speed.
Thus, I save myself
With my heart-light.
