(1) Narrow Is The Way

Rating: 2.7
I thought
the gate to life I´d found,
my treasure and my heart.

I´d lost the load of pride
but the maid sleeps,
and swine eat pearls.

Luis, 'swine eat pearls' is used in an entirely different context to what I considered it's original meaning - suggesting perhaps they've eaten your pride? It certainly is a narrow way in that enigmatic sense! Rgds, Ivan
