Truths of Love (34)

I have separated from the people of the intellect

to join the companions of love.

When love’s legend reached my ears

I recited a requiem for myself.

When love’s banner was raised up

intellect’s standard was cast down.

Truth arrived and falsehood departed.

Love arrived and the intellect was overthrown.

Love came to reign over the heart’s realm

and intellect, feeling ashamed, gave up its boastful claim.
