here is the ocean,this is moonlight:say
that both precisely beyond either were–
so in darkness ourselves go,mind in mind

which is the thrilling least of all(for love’s
secret supremely clothes herself with day)
i mean,should any curious dawn discuss
our mingling spirits,you would disappear
unreally;as this planet(understand)
forgets the entire and perpetual sea

–but if yourself consider wonderful
that your(how luminous)life toward twilight will
dissolve reintegrate beckon through me,
i think it is less wonderful than this
only by you my heart always moves
e. e. cummings

This most great, this fathomless and surging Ocean is near, astonishingly near, unto you. Behold it is closer to you than your life-vein! Swift as the twinkling of an eye ye can, if ye but wish it, reach and partake of this imperishable favor, this God-given grace, this incorruptible gift, this most potent and unspeakably glorious bounty. — Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 326

“Seek thou the shore of the Most Great Ocean, and enter, then, the Crimson Ark which God hath ordained.” — Bahá’u’lláh, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, p. 139
