Mechthild of Magdeburg--poem 

Then shall I leap into love

By Mechthild of Magdeburg
(1207 - 1297)

English version by Frank J. Tobin

I cannot dance, Lord, unless you lead me.
If you want me to leap with abandon,
You must intone the song.
Then I shall leap into love,
From love into knowledge,
From knowledge into enjoyment,
And from enjoyment beyond all human sensations.
There I want to remain, yet want also to circle higher still.
