Light

 


            Light


              Apple of the worlds eye O ! Light

               Omnipotent illuminator

               Where from, does thou sprout ?

               Immanent thou art, yet I presume

               It's from the teeming rays

               Of the fleckless, fine fumes

               Of the sea of joyfulness




Hidden in the waking eye of a babe

Shed to illumine the pallid face

Of its mother in bed, with labour pain

That thou hast captured this unique sheen

And now warms the world with rays serene.


O ! a drop of you, in the the horrid darkness

While it shrouded the entire universe,

My darling ! like heaven you rose

In the shape of Dawn, a blissful boon.

Taking wings from the horizon

First you came and gave the Moon her milk;

The silver anklet to the Lightning shots;

And the gleaming smiles to the ocean waves.

Came you then to the human world

And smeared on the sleeping hoards,

Your ambrosia the elixir

To enliven their souls to wakefulness.

Now you linger O ! heavenly Light !

Eternal ! in the wailing human hearts 

In their blind pursuits after paltry pelf

To lead them to a knowledge of the self.
