Active, inspired by her he speaks and moves;
His deeds obey her heart's unspoken demands;
O Sun-Word, thou shalt raise the earth-soul to Light
A mightier race shall inhabit the mortal's world.

Poems by R Y Deshpande


The World of the Gods

Hung above the dome of night like a jewel-fire

Glimmers the chandelier-world of the gods, --

A splendour drawn from the womb of the Vast,

Or like a million flames bursting from the sun

A ruby-glow thrown in each bud-passion of life.

It bears no shadow but under its wings brood

Our thoughts, and awake here our early dawns:

Over this peak towards which climb our sights

Summits of the Eternal lean into Time.

Here enters the primal ray into Ignorance,

A wave that brings to us tidings of the far sea,

A storm-speed that takes the sky to Infinity.

Denizens of this world are our guardian-friends

Who drink honey-wine of the Earth’s sacrifice, --

In their felicity expands her bosom

As though the Unborn found his beloved.

God of Light

God of light sleeping in a mystery-flame,

Gold of love drawn into an inward rapture,

All heaven folded in a sapphire repose,

Trance ineffable of a splendoured silence...

His the eagle-poise of superconscient peace,

His the calm of a wide englobing halo...

Lord of the creative, the conquering force,

Smile of the Supreme and the winning strength,

Blaze noon-intense of the godhead’s brilliant triumph...

His the penance claiming divinity for man,

His the destiny’s labour with earth’s heavy load,

His the will bringing to soul the Oversoul...

A brow of gleaming vision’s mystic expanse,

Breast a diamond-cup of infinity’s bliss,

Sun-feet strolling on eternity’s luminous ways,

Only a blue-gold Elysian hue of the High...

A Truth-resplendence in tranquil lotus-name,

King and Poet of the supramental Word!
