He Who Is Stricken By Love

He who is stricken by Love
Sings and dances out of tune.

He who wears the garb of Love
Gets blessings from above.

Soon as he drinks from this cup
No questions and no answers remain.

He who is stricken by Love
Sings and dances out of tune.

He who has the Beloved in his heart,
He is fulfilled with his Love.
No need he has for formality,
He just enjoys his ecstasy.

He who is stricken by Love
Sings and dances out of tune.

Mike - Let me just pretend for a little while, that this beautiful poem was written for me! I have green eyes and blonde hair also. Go figure! My twin out there somewhere gets all the luck. Thanks for these lovely words. Hugs - Cheryl
