Discourse on Sanctuary

A quote from the "Discourse on Sanctuary" in the Discourses on Love, in which the speaker invites her lover to experience the Goddess’s realm with her through acts of passion.

Awaken unto me,
to my certain embrace
under the wing of darkness,
where together we find shelter.

Against my heart,
you shall find strength.
With your heart against mine,
I shall be strong.

Oh light of my eyes,
let us shine with joy
beneath the endless sky,
where we are free.
