To my beloved father:

You have entered the blood-red eye of the immaculate golden storm.
Rest now in the Thunder Perfect Mind:
Your face is all the Sky.

Who is the enjoyer? what is the enjoyed? Who is the sufferer? What is suffered?

Teach us to pray for the beloved dead,
Since we are blind and know not what is best.
The still small voice of Silence answering said,
"Pray for rest."

Oh, my lost love, and shall I therefore pray
That thou may'st sleep through an eternal night?
The still small voice of Silence answered "Nay, Pray for light."
