After all these years
the sun never says to the earth,
"You owe me."
Look what can come
from a love like this.
It lights the whole sky.
If we're not together in the heart,
what's the point? When body and soul
aren't dancing, there's no pleasure
in colorful clothing.
Why have cooking pans when there's
no food in the house? In this world full of
fresh bread, amber, and musk, so many
different fragrances, what are they
to someone with no sense of smell?
If you stay away from the fire, you'll
be sour, doughy, numb and raw.
You may have lovely just-baked loaves
around you, but those friends cannot help.
You have to feel the oven fire.
