48. Two friends

When I sit
On the summits of my mind,
My old friend, Joy, leaves me immediately.
   The joyless beggar
   Helpless comes down.

When I play
In the depths of my heart,
My old friend, God, appears before me.
   Two friends together drink
   Two friends together become
     Oneness-soul of Peace,
     Oneness-goal of Bliss.
