Prayer to the Goddess

On the edge of sight, I can see a wonder:
a woman on a horse walking slowly away,
her moon-pale steed taking even strides.
If I send swift thoughts racing after her,
I cannot overtake her;
her careful steps keep ahead of my impetuous racing.
I call out to her:
“Lady, for the sake of the one who loves you,
I beg of you, stop.”

She comes to a halt and I can approach.
She says, “It would have been better if you had done that first.”
I remember, and call to her in love,
and wait for her to stop for me.
