Luring Us Is Mind Impure


Towards goal ultimate,
Light within drives
aspirations in heat sublimate
boat sailing may drown
clashing waves, changing tides
cloud of ignorance hides
rowing errors, wrong navigation
if not sky is clear and blur is vision
how can stars show way
things around never lure
Luring us is mind impure
thin narrow invisible line
separate heaven's and hell's lane
Even in Eden apple was there
misleading serpent always
why not many such things
here in hell through which
you have to pass?

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
