To A Buddha Seated On A Lotus

Rating: 3.2
LORD BUDDHA, on thy Lotus-throne,
With praying eyes and hands elate,
What mystic rapture dost thou own,
Immutable and ultimate?
What peace, unravished of our ken,
Annihilate from the world of men?

The wind of change for ever blows
Across the tumult of our way,
To-morrow's unborn griefs depose
The sorrows of our yesterday.

There is great inspiration behind 2nd and 3rd stanzas; they seem to come from a high overhead plane. The rest-professionally perfect.
