He bodied forth this rapture luminous

Maya could never bind him, for he came
Armed with a white omnipotence of soul.
What crown could dazzle, when he wore the flame
Of God's eternity as aureole?
Unvisioned Master of miraculous
Impenetrable light beyond decay,
He bodied forth this rapture luminous
To rouse the dead divinity of clay.
Nought shall oppose his fire, the golden heat
Of his transforming mercy - grace sublime
That from each heart at his heroic feet
Burns with a benison the murk of time.
(Amal kiran, 1934)
