Universe

Life kept no more a dull and meaningless shape.
In the struggle and upheaval of the world

Fate covered with an unseen necessity
The game of chance of an omnipotent will.
A glory and a rapture and a charm,
The All blissful sat unknown within the heart;
Earth’s pains were just a ransom of its imprisoned delight.

The days were travellers on a destined road,
The nights, companions of the musing spirit.
Existence as a divine experiment
And cosmos the soul’s opportunity.
