From Labyrinth and Song of Songs:

I understand
as the floor,
gracefully I reach
across the nave.
On your way,
you walk over me
I await you,
“Follow the path,”
my stones beckon.
Shaped, formed,
hewn ever so carefully,
my lines and curves
invite your explorations.
Walk over me if you must.
Walk on me if you can.
