Carry us on your swiftest fleet, entangle our bones in your silvery net, usher us in the glory of your chasm.

Oh splendid orb, oh blessed chalice
touch your cup to our eager lips
carry us on your swiftest fleet
entangle our bones in your silvery net
usher us in the glory of your chasm
circumvent the stars
as we silently steal away
to your dust gladdened meadows
stain our garments with your firmament
like an old master paint us
with your thinest veil
set us aglow as we prick your sphere
your vespers dripping from our lips
our love entombed in your cavity
