Collected Poems

SABCL - Volume 5

II. Sonnets

Liberation [2]

My mind, my soul grow larger than all Space;

Time founders in that vastness glad and nude:

The body fades, an outline, a dim trace,

A memory in the spirit’s solitude.

This universe is a vanishing circumstance

In the glory of a white infinity,

Beautiful and bare for the Immortal’s dance,

House-room of my immense felicity.

In the thrilled happy giant void within

Thought lost in light and passion drowned in bliss,

Changing into a stillness hyaline,

Obey the edict of the Eternal’s peace.

Life’s now the Ineffable’s dominion;

Nature is ended and the spirit alone.
