23


I CAME NEAREST to you, though I did not know it,-when I came to hurt you.

I owned you at last as my master when I fought against you to be defeated.

I merely made my debt to you burdensome when I robbed you in secret.

I struggled in my pride against your current only to feel all your force in my breast.

Rebelliously I put out the light in my house and your sky surprised me with its stars.
