I. Short Poems

Bride of the Fire

Bride of the Fire, clasp me now close,–

Bride of the Fire!

I have shed the bloom of the earthly rose,

I have slain desire.

Beauty of the Light, surround my life,–

Beauty of the Light!

I have sacrificed longing and parted from grief,

I can bear thy delight.

Image of ecstasy, thrill and enlace,–

Image of bliss!

I would see only thy marvellous face,

Feel only thy kiss.

Voice of Infinity, sound in my heart,–

Call of the One!

Stamp there thy radiance, never to part,

O living Sun.
