quatrain 428

From sunlight, a version of quatrain #428:
In one sweet moment,
She burst from my heart.
There we sat on the floor,
drinking ruby wine.
Trapped by Her beauty,
I saw and touched –
My whole face became eyes,
All my eyes became hands.

-- Version by Jonathan Star and Shahram Shiva
A Garden Beyond Paradise
Bantam Books, 1992
