Correspondence with Sri Aurobindo
The Complete Set
You said “circumstances are exceptional” as regards my early success in English versification. It must be so, otherwise how could I write these poems so fast and beautifully? But please
Let me know
How 'tis so
A dullard like me
Bursting like a sea
With the heart of the Muse
Makes his rhythm fuse?
You are opening, opening, opening
Into a wider, wider scopening
That fills me with a sudden hopening
That I may carry you in spite of gropening
Your soul into the supramental ropening.
N.B. Surrealist poetry.
K says that last two days she has not taken much1 and is not hungry either.
Ambu's weakness seems to be nervous. I wanted to prescribe Drakshasava (general tonic + appetiser), but our stock is exhausted. Amal said he has a bottle of it, sent to him by his family, which he could share with Ambu. What do you say?
Though I don't see why Amal requires any medicine at all.
It is the family which forces medicines on him, I hear.
1 Sri Aurobindo drew an arrow indicating the word “much”.
