SO ARE HER DAWNS LIKE JEWELLED LEAVES OF LIGHT

So are her dawns like jewelled leaves of light.

So casts she her felicity on men.

A flame of radiant happiness she was born,

And surely will that flame set earth alight:

Doom surely will see her pass and say no word,

But too often here the careless Mother leaves

Her chosen in the envious hands of Fate:

The harp of God falls mute, its call to bliss

Discouraged fails mid earth’s unhappy sounds;

The strings of the siren Ecstasy cry not here

Or sooner silenced in the human heart.

-SAVITRI
