For the act of gazing sets limits.
And the world gazed at more deeply
wants to flourish in love.
Work of the eyes is done,
begin heartwork now
on those images in you, those captive ones;
for you conquered them: but now you don’t know them.
Behold, inner man, your inner woman,
she who was won
from a thousand natures, she
the till now only won,
as yet never loved creation.
