Before creation a presence existed,
formless, voiceless, mateless,
Which yet pervaded itself with
Though there can be no name
I have called it the "way of life."
Perhaps I should have called it
"the fullness of life,"
Since fullness implies widening
Implies still further widening
Implies still further widening,
Implies widening until the circle
In this sense
The way of life is fulfilled.
Heaven is fulfilled.
Earth is fulfilled.
And a fit person also is fulfilled.
There are the four amplitudes of
And a fit person is one of them.
People rounding the way of
Earth rounding the way of
Heaven rounding the way of life
Till the circle is full.
