To Baba
...The Awakener
 
HE Who glows within the rose,
    He Who every mystery knows,
He Who comes like gentle rain
 Soothing all our earthly pain;
 
The true Awakener of the heart
               Who sees the Whole within the part;
     Who raises man above the earth,
     Renewing him in mystic Birth.
 
A flame, a fire, a perfect flower,
    A penetrating Cosmic Power;
 A cleaving sword to strike away
The crudities of mortal clay.
 
      A Voice that calls across the night;
         "Arise! and seek the Perfect Light
              From whence you came, It is your Goal,
       And dwells eternal in your soul."
 
He Who glows within the rose,
    He Who every mystery knows,
         On the path where Saints have trod,
               Behold Him come, the Son of GOD!
