Oh, too late have I loved thee, BEAUTY so ancient and so new, too late have I loved thee. Behold, thou wast within me and I was searching outside, among the beauty of thy CREATION. At last, didst thou call out loud, didst thou FORCE OPEN my deafness and didst chase away my blindness. Thou didst BREATHE fragrant odours and I drew in my breath; and now I pant FOR THEE. Thou didst touch me, and I burned for thy PEACE."
