Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

A description of the experience

The poet’s fantasy
Adapted from Book of Songs by Heinrich Heine

Say you’re not just a vision or fantasy
Speak, for I must know again,
That you’re not just a heavenly daydream
Conjured up in this poor poet’s brain

Oh a mouth of such lovely completeness
Eyes twinkling with bewitching flame
Face rounded out with such sweetness
No, a poet couldn’t such heaven frame

Silly songs,  silly words, silly lyrics
Dragons, monsters and similar kind
Serpents and stories and sad songs
Are invented in this poet’s mind

But yourself, so bewitching, so lovely
So gorgeous and striking  - it's true
The looks and the voice and the actions, no
No poet could make up dear you
