Having had a mystic realisation of God, the poet has tried to depict God in his songs; but he has failed to explain to explain hes meaning. Divine presence is a mystic experience that comes through faith; wrds cannot communicate it. God loves the mystics and comes to them while the world scorns them.
I BOASTED among men that I had known you. They see your pictures in all works of mine. They come and ask me, “Who is he?” I know not how to answer them. I say, “Indeed, I cannot tell.” They blame me and they go away in scorn. And you sit there smiling.
I put my tales of you into lasting songs. The secret gushes out from my heart. They come and ask me, ”Tell me all your meanings.” I know not how to answer them. I say,”Ah, who knows what they mean!” They smile and go away in ulter scorn. And you sit there smiling.
