Tree of Life

An angel came down
to the earth

with an impudence over
the heaven

for the angel knew nothing bitter
than the Nectar of Heaven

the angel went down
to the hell

insolent over
the earth

for the angel found nothing sweeter
than the pain of love

In the hell, in the dark, the angel
found the nectar of his taste.

Spreading his roots into the hell,
he rose to the earth,
towards the heaven

as men worshiped this Tree of Life.
