Inevitable Word

Because Thou Art

Sonnet — An Invocation to The Master #19

Because Thou art the sovereign of my soul,
Therefore it errs not in the human tangle.
It treads the high road to Thy marvel,
Bearing the spectre of Thy perfect rule.

Because Thou art the sovereign of my mind,
Therefore even its errors lead to Thee.
It voyages through firmaments of Thy light,
It is a swan of Thy white eternity.

Because Thou art the sovereign of my body,
Therefore a frame of deathless elegance walking.
It breathes through the carapace the air of Thy immortality,
It measures the world by a barefoot of Thy self-exceeding.

Because Thou art the sovereign of my heart,
Therefore Thou alone art, O my Paramour intimate!

Inevitable Word is a pedestal for the newer forms of Poetry, Prose and literary Criticism. It is an attempt to bring into every manuscript the inevitable word and expression of the Spirit, as may be found in the Vedas, and more prominently, in the works of Sri Aurobindo.
