My Lord, my Lord, my Lord,

My Lord!

If I love You just because

You love me,

Then I am eternally and infinitely

Worse than the worst.

But, my Lord, if I love You

Because I cannot breathe

Without loving You,

Then do allow me to enjoy

Prayerfully, sleeplessly

And breathlessly

The dust-beauty, the dust-fragrance

And the dust-delight

Of Your Nectar-Feet.
