Love at Sunset

In God's Wine Cellar

Draw me after You!
We will run in the fragrance of Your perfume,
O heavenly Spouse!
I will run and not tire,
until You bring me into the wine-cellar,
until Your left hand is under my head
and Your right hand will embrace me happily
and You will kiss me with the happiest kiss of Your mouth.

~St. Clare, written 1253, at age 60, a few months before her death
