A Blessing Poem by Swami Vivekananda

A Blessing

Rating: 4.6


The Mother's heart, the hero's will,
The softest flowers' sweetest feel;

The charm and force that ever sway
The altar-fire's flaming play;

The strength that leads, in love obeys;
Far-reaching dreams, and patient ways,

Eternal faith in Self, in all,
The light Divine in great, in small;

All these and more than I could see,
Today may 'Mother' grant to thee!

Sure, Swami Vivekananda has a flame of tongue to utter truths like this in poems pure from the heart!
