Talk:Union with God
Agrippa of Aubigne
Being only a mortal man, your celestial beauty,
The violent lightning of your divine face Made me taste death, death and ruin,
In order to come to immortality anew.
Your divine fire burned my mortal essence,
Your celestial being fell in love with me and ravished me to the skies;
Your soul was divine, and mine was also:
Goddess, you raised me to the ranks of the other gods.
My mouth dared to touch the crimson mouth
To gather in, without dying, its immortal beauty;
I have lived on nectar, I have sucked ambrosia,
Savoring what is most sweet of the divine.
