“She stood before him
and surrendered herself to him
and sky, forest, and brook
all came toward him
in new and resplendent colors,
belonged to him,
and spoke to him in his own language.
And instead of merely winning a woman
he embraced the entire world
and every star in heaven glowed within him
and sparkled with joy in his soul.
He had loved
and had found himself.
But most people love to lose themselves”.
