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.
