p. Harris 500 Song Cycle 2 love poem 4

I step out, uncertain, in search of your love
            - stand firm, my heart, within me -
seeing sweet cakes
    was like seeing salt,
and the fruit wine sweet in my mouth
    had become like the leavings of fowl.

The scent of your fragrance, yours alone,
only this enlivens my heart.
I find you, my gift from the Hidden One
for all time, here and hereafter.
