What greater thing is there for two human souls,
than to feel that they are joined for life-

in silent unspeakable memories ...
You and I
Have so much love
Burns like a fire,
In which we bake a lump of clay
Molded into a figure of you
And a figure of me.
Then we take both of them,
And break them into pieces,
And mix the pieces with water,
And mold again a figure of you,
And a figure of me.
I am in your clay.
You are in my clay.
