To Avatar Meher Baba

 

 

I. Reflected Image

 

 

Made in Thine image? Lord, we wander far,
 
Who should be shining like a star—
 
Who should be singing like a bird—
 
We, who have heard Thy sacred word!
 

 

  Let us recapture now Thy sight,
   
  And bring Thy vision in delight
   
  To birth. The barren earth will bloom
   
  With flowers where we walk; and, when
   
  We talk, 'twill be as if an angel choir
   
  Had, singing, kindled holy fire
   
  To lead all souls forever higher,
   
  Until they rest at one with Thee.
   
   

 

 

II. Insensible

 

 

Holy lover, let me be
 
Insensible to all save Thee!
 
My body dead to any sense―
 
My mind restored to innocence―
 
My heart consumed with love for Thee—
 
Then shall Thy spirit sing through me!
