AND BETAKING ME TO THE LONELINESS OF MINE OWN ROOM, I FELL TO THINKING OF THIS MOST COURTEOUS LADY, THINKING OF WHOM I WAS OVERTAKEN BY A PLEASANT SLUMBER, WHEREIN A MARVELOUS VISION WAS PRESENTED TO ME: FOR THERE APPEARED TO BE IN MY ROOM A MIST OF THE COLOUR OF FIRE, WITHIN THE WHICH I DISCERNED THE FIGURE OF A LORD OF TERRIBLE ASPECT TO SUCH AS SHOULD GAZE UPON HIM, BUT WHO SEEMED THERE-WITHAL TO REJOICE INWARDLY THAT IT WAS A MARVEL TO SEE. SPEAKING HE SAID MANY THINGS, AMONG THE WHICH I COULD UNDERSTAND BUT FEW; AND OF THESE, THIS: “I AM THY LORD”. IN HIS ARMS IT SEEMED TO ME THAT A PERSON WAS SLEEPING, COVERED ONLY WITH A CRIMSON CLOTH; UPON WHOM LOOKING VERY ATTENTIVELY, I KNEW THAT IT WAS THE LADY OF THE SALUTATION, WHO HAD DEIGNED THE DAY BEFORE TO SALUTE ME. AND HE WHO HELD HER HELD ALSO IN HIS HAND A THING THAT WAS BURNING IN FLAMES, AND HE SAID TO ME “BEHOLD THY HEART”. BUT WHEN HE HAD REMAINED WITH ME A LITTLE WHILE, I THOUGHT THAT HE SET HIMSELF TO AWAKEN HER THAT SLEPT; AFTER THE WHICH HE MADE HER TO EAT THAT THING WHICH FLAMED IN HIS HAND; AND SHE ATE AS ONE FEARING.
