Bride Of The Fire - Poem by Sri Aurobindo

Bride of the Fire, clasp me now close, -
Bride of the Fire!
I have shed the bloom of the earthly rose,
I have slain desire.

Beauty of the Light, surround my life, -
Beauty of the Light!
I have sacrificed longing and parted from grief,
I can bear thy delight.

Image of Ecstasy, thrill and enlace, -
Image of Bliss!
I would see only thy marvellous face,
Feel only thy kiss.

Voice of Infinity, sound in my heart, -
Call of the One!
Stamp there thy radiance, never to part,
O living sun.

    Voice of Infinity, sound in my heart, -
    Call of the One!
    Stamp there thy radiance, never to part,
    O living sun.
    This kind of poetry will next be created 500 years hereafter?
    Dare not rate you Maharishi.
