VI. Poems in New Metres
Rose of God
Rose of Bliss, fire-sweet, seven-tinged with the ecstasies seven!
Passion-flower of the Nameless, bud of the mystical Name.
Rose of Light, immaculate core of the ultimate seeing!
Sun on the head of the Timeless, guest of the marvellous Hour.
Rose of Power with thy diamond halo piercing the night!
Image of Immortality, outbreak of the Godhead in man.
Rose of Life, crowded with petals, colour’s lyre!
Bridge our earthhood and heavenhood, make deathless the children of Time.
Rose of Love, ruby depth of all being, fire-passion of Grace!
Make earth the home of the Wonderful and life beatitude’s kiss.
