THESE GLIMMERING POINTS TO THE SECRET OF OUR BIRTH

A line of transcendent meets our road

And joins us to the timeless and the true;

It brings us to the inevitable word,

The godlike act, the thoughts that never die

These glimmering point to the secret of our birth

And the hidden miracle of our destiny

The light now distant shall glow native here,

The strength that visits us our comrade power;

The ineffable shall find a secret voice,

Our being looks beyond its walls of mind

And it communicates with greater worlds;

There are brighter earths and wider heavens that ours.

Dreams to transcribe and make a part of life

In its own native style and living tongue

Some traits of the perfection of the unborn,

Some vision seen in the omniscient Light,

Some rapture of the all-creating Bliss,

Some form and plan of the Beauty unutterable.

Worlds are there nearer to those absolute realms,

Where the response to truth is swift and sure

And love and sweetness are the law of life.

Overleaping the fixed hurdle set by Time,

The rapid net of intuitive clasp

Captures the fugitive happiness we desire.

Pursues the spirit of beauty to its home.

Thus we draw near to the All-Wonderful

Following his rapture in things as sign and guide;

Beauty is his footprints showing us where he has passed,

Love is his heart-beats’ rhythm in mortal breasts,

Happiness the smile on his adorable face.

A communion of spiritual entities,

A genius of creative Immanence,

Makes all creation deeply intimate:

A fourth dimension of aesthetic sense

Where all is in ourselves, ourselves in all,

To the cosmic wideness that re-aligns our souls.
