Now That Love's Got Hold of Me, to Elsie Hagley, by Manatita
To Your Spirit, Elsie, the immortal and undaunting; the courageous and the resilient, with aspiration and willingness to grow and prosper.
Now that Love’s got hold of me, I’m flying like a kite.
Singing; dancing; soaring, to a realm of sweet Delight.
Veiled curtains now wide open; and so Heaven is my height.
I ride on joy to Paradise; to sweet supernal Light.
Yon meadow was the Tavern, where first I tried to see.
The eyes of my Beloved, Her gaze embracing me.
Alas! A Heart not strong enough, as sturdy as should be.
Caused me to miss Her golden plume; this weakness was the key.
Now I waltz between the clouds, paint tapestry on stars.
No more my shadow-cages, nor earthly prison bars.
Like Rolls Royce’s, Mercedes, and fast chauffeur-driven cars,
Such is the way of Angels, faster than the speed of Sars.
Now that I’m asleep in Bliss, Awake in Silence-Peace.
I sport and dine with Sovereigns, sumptuous banquets not amiss.
Embraced by my Beloved, gave me such a great big kiss!
Where can I swing in ecstasy, more beautiful than this?
