When my heart burns
My love rejoices
Burn it should
To keep it aflamed.
The more it blazes
The more radiant my love!
When my heart weeps
My love rejoices
Weep it should
To keep it pure.
The more it cries
The more chaste my love!
Burn it should and weep it should
Melt it should and cleanse it should
Mould it should and fold it should
To settle in the place of Prayer.
Brightened and enlightened
Washed and purged
Beaten into a thread of gold
A resplendent Rosary to hold
A thread that joined the heart to the soul
In the form of Prayer!
This poem is talking about how or in what way your heart needs to be ready to pray.It needs to keep itself ablaze in the fire of the love of God and cleanse itself with tears. Radiant and chaste to go into prayer.The thread over here refers to the rosary i.e TASBIH, the ZIKR that you do on the tasbih connects your heart to your soul.
