BOOK X The Book of the Double Twilight   LIVRE X Le Livre du Double Crépuscule     Make rather thy thought a plain and faithful glass Reflecting Matter and mortality, And know thy soul a product of the flesh, A made-up self in the constructed world. Thy words are large murmurs in a mystic dream. For how in the soiled heart of man could dwell The inarticulate grandeur of thy dream-built God, Or who can see a face and form divine In the naked two-legged worm thou callest man ? O human face, put off mind-painted masks: The animal be, the worm that Nature m

BOOK X The Book of the Double Twilight   LIVRE X Le Livre du Double Crépuscule     A hand is lifted towards the Invisible's realm Beyond the superconscient's blinding line And plucks away the screens of the Unknown; A spirit within looks into the Eternal's eyes. It hears the Word to which our hearts were deaf, It sees through the blaze in which our thoughts grew blind; It drinks from the naked breasts of glorious Truth, It learns the secrets of eternity. Thus all was plunged into the riddling Night, Thus all is raised to meet a dazzling Sun. O D

Fragments   BOOK I Canto IV   When darkness deepens strangling the earth's breast And man's corporeal mind is the only lamp, As a thief's in the night shall be the covert tread Of one who steps unseen into his house. A voice ill-heard shall speak, the soul obey, A power into mind's inner chamber steal, A charm and sweetness open life's closed doors And beauty conquer the resisting world, The truth-light capture Nature by surprise, A stealth of God compel the heart to bliss And earth grow unexpectedly divine. In Matter shall be lit the spirit's glow, In body an

Fragments   BOOK XI Canto I   "O Satyavan, O luminous Savitri, I sent you forth of old beneath the stars, A dual power of God in an ignorant world, In a hedged creation shut from limitless self, Bringing down God to the insentient globe, Lifting earth-beings to immortality. .................................................... "He is my soul that climbs from nescient Night Through life and mind and supernature's Vast To the supernal light of Timelessness And my eternity hid in moving Time And my boundlessness cut by the curve of Space. ......................................................

BOOK X The Book of the Double Twilight   LIVRE X Le Livre du Double Crépuscule     One who came, love and lover and beloved Eternal, built himself a wondrous field And wove the measures of a marvellous dance. There in its circles and its magic turns Attracted he arrives, repelled he flees. In the wild devious promptings of his mind He tastes the honey of tears and puts off joy Repenting, and has laughter and has wrath, And both are a broken music of the soul Which seeks out, reconciled, its heavenly rhyme.

Fragments   BOOK VI Canto II   A day may come when she must stand unhelped On a dangerous brink of the world's doom and hers, Carrying the world's future on her lonely breast, Carrying the human hope in a heart left sole To conquer or fail on a last desperate verge. Alone with death and close to extinction's edge, Her single greatness in that last dire scene, She must cross alone a perilous bridge in Time And reach an apex of world-destiny Where all is won or all is lost for man. In that tremendous silence lone and lost Of a deciding hour in the world's fate, In

BOOK X The Book of the Double Twilight   LIVRE X Le Livre du Double Crépuscule     Canto II The Gospel of Death and Vanity of the Ideal   Then pealed the calm inexorable voice : Abolishing hope, cancelling life's golden truths, Fatal its accents smote the trembling air. That lovely world swam thin and frail, most like Some pearly evanescent farewell gleam On the faint verge of dusk in moonless eves. "Prisoner of Nature, many-visioned spirit, Thought's creature in the ideal's realm enjoying Thy unsubstantial immortality The subtle marvello

BOOK X The Book of the Double Twilight   LIVRE X Le Livre du Double Crépuscule     Canto III The Debate of Love and Death   A sad destroying cadence the voice sank; It seemed to lead the advancing march of Life Into some still original Inane. But Savitri answered to almighty Death: "O dark-browed sophist of the universe Who veilst the Real with its own Idea, Hiding with brute objects Nature's living face, Masking eternity with thy dance of death, Thou hast woven the ignorant Mind into a screen And made of Thought error's purveyor and scribe

BOOK X The Book of the Double Twilight   LIVRE X Le Livre du Double Crépuscule     Canto IV The Dream Twilight of the Earthly Real   There came a slope that slowly downward sank; It slipped towards a stumbling grey descent. The dim-heart marvel of the ideal was lost; Its crowding wonder of bright delicate dreams And vague half-limned sublimities she had left: Thought fell towards lower levels; hard and tense It passioned for some crude reality. The twilight floated still but changed its hues And heavily swathed a less delightful dream; It settled in tired masses on t
