Excerpt

Book Excerpt

"You have the eyes of Hera,
the hands of Athena,
the breasts of Aphrodite.
Blessed is the man who looks upon you.
Thrice blessed is the man who hears you talk.
A demi-god is the man who kisses you.
A god the man who takes you into bed."
Rufinos

"Is there anything else two beings can do, joined for the moment and forever in the communion of love, besides feel the depths of that mystery and remain silent? This is the point, the marvelous limit, where the Word breaks off, defeated, and the pure act triumphs. Beyond this threshold, no word sounds."
Pierre Mabille

"One night in the darkness, I demanded my heart again from thy tresses. I beheld thy cheek, and drank from the cup of thy mouth. I drew thee quickly to my breast, and thy tresses blazed in flame; I pressed lip to lip, and gave for thy ransom my soul and heart."

Hafez



"Whatever one loves, one finds everywhere, and everywhere sees resemblances and analogies to it. The greater one's love, the vaster and more meaningful is this analogous world. My beloved is the abbreviation of the universe, the universe an elongation, an extrapolation of my beloved."

Novalis



"Reads beautifully in one sitting alone, or over several nights in bed with a beloved reading each arousing word."
Diana Rajchel, The Beltane Papers, May 2004
