What Must I Do
O to become a connoisseur of the poetry of the lovelorn devotees; and to feel an active participant, yet removed. In all what will it take?
How will ascetic action or retirement aid me?
What knowledge will not harm me?
And with whom should I share my intimate self, forming bonds of friendship and openness of heart?
If I am to be intoxicated with profound sentiments, and enamoured by beauty; should I not dis-burden myself of contrary feelings fuelled by aggression?
Of the many pathways of purpose extending before me, which should I chose?
For to love in the finest sense, the perfect beloved, I must commence.
