  1. In Salutation To The Eternal Peace

    Men say the world is full of fear and hate,
    And all life’s ripening harvest-fields await
    The restless sickle of relentless fate.

    But I, sweet Soul, rejoice that I was born,
    When from the climbing terraces of corn
    I watch the golden orioles of Thy morn.

    What care I for the world’s desire and pride,
    Who know the silver wings that gleam and glide,
    The homing pigeons of Thine eventide?

    What care I for the world’s loud weariness,
    Who dream in twilight granaries Thou dost bless
    With delicate sheaves of mellow silences?

    Say, shall I heed dull presages of doom,
    Or dread the rumoured loneliness and gloom,
    The mute and mythic terror of the tomb?

    For my glad heart is drunk and drenched with Thee,
    O inmost wind of living ecstasy!
    O intimate essence of eternity!

    – Sarojini Naidu
