201. Sweet Heaven, my haven


Lord, how many years more

Have I to write earthly poems?

When will You inspire me

To write Heavenly poems?

"Poet, why do you make an absurd request?

How can you expect to write poems

That belong to Heaven?

I shall take your case into consideration

Only when you come back to Heaven."

Lord, in that case, at this very moment

I am leaving for Heaven,

Sweet Heaven, my haven.
