The Love of God

The love of God, unutterable and perfect,
          flows into a pure soul the way that light
          rushes into a transparent object.
The more love that it finds, the more it gives
          itself; so that, as we grow clear and open,
          the more complete the joy of heaven is.
And the more souls who resonate together,
          the greater the intensity of their love,
          and, mirror-like, each soul reflects the other.
By Dante Alighieri (1265? - 1321) English version by Stephen Mitchell
