For Love of the Love

For Love of the Love (St. Francis of Assisi)

I beg you, Lord,
let the glowing and honey-sweet
force of your love draw my mind
away from all things
that are under heaven,
that I may die for love
of the love of you
who thought it a worthy thing
to die for love
of the love of me.
