The Earth does not regret its times of mourning,
However overwhelmed by waves of grief.
Inside each thing is an eternal fire
Redeeming all the sorrows of desire,
Transforming them to more than mere relief.
Yearning is the beauty of each dawning.

One is all: Then why are stars adorning
Night, ripped from their single, perfect sire
Even as they dance in disbelief?
