Collected Poems

SABCL - Volume 5

II. Sonnets
19301950

Electron

The electron on which forms and worlds are built,

Leaped into being, a particle of God.

A spark from the eternal Energy spilt,

It is the Infinite’s blind minute abode.

In that small flaming chariot Shiva rides.

The One devised innumerably to be;

His oneness in invisible forms he hides,

Time’s tiny temples of1 eternity.

Atom and molecule in their unseen plan

Buttress an edifice of strange onenesses,

Crystal and plant, insect and beast and man,–

Man on whom the World-Unity shall seize,

Widening his soul-spark to an epiphany

Of the timeless vastness of Infinity.
