gaudium esse in sancta sanctorum

such enticing eyebrows
and what charming lashes
how they’ve ensnared me
these nets of your beauty
but now I can speak no more
of your eyes   for they have stolen
my breath away    like a pilgrim
in a holy place I fall silent
my simple offerings are these verses
and my unswerving love
