Mirror of Fire

Oh, Mirror of Fire
Why do you test me so?
Don’t you know?
Your blazing flames can only
Fail
To dissuade me
Don’t you see?
My love for thee is so – I’m
Ready
To embrace your fiery
Soul
Can’t you feel it now?
I’m yours.
You’re mine.
And behold!
To ashes and dust
I did not go
But with tender autumn petals
Did you my face kiss
instead
Mirror of Fire,
Your test has now been done
Mirror of Petals,
In you we are now
One
