When eyes behold bright rays in yonder wave,
Where darkness cowers in the fear of light,
My love, the lodestar, guides me through the cave,
And blinds the shadows that urge me to flight.
Thou light, in earnest, it doth keep my track,
My eyes doth see thine lifeless corpses past,
Thy love’s destruction does not force me back,
Though mind doth sway, my lusty heart steadfast.
I’m almost to my true love’s tight embrace,
Her rays doth fill my weary heart with lust,
Though suddenly, her light a stone replace.
Within the cave, the light doth fade to dust.
Without my love, the world I cannot see,
In darkness, corpses come to comfort me.
