The words of Metchtild inspired these pages in my altered book.
"I cannot dance O Lord, unless Thou lead me.
If Thou wilt that I leap joyfully
Then must Thou Thyself first dance and sing!
Then will I leap for love
From love to knowledge,
From Knowledge to fruition,
From fruition to beyond all human sense
There will I remain
And circle evermore."
Metchtild of Magdeburg in An Anthology of Christian Mysticism
