The Inward Purity (Poem)

Find ye that life is anguish, and that self-love is a chainThat binds thy quivering soul, and cuts with biting stings of pain?Grieve ye where Slander's serpents trail beneath fair flowers of Trust?Or weep where Friendship buried lies 'neath Hatred's fulsome dust?Then listen,—Selfish sweets are brief, and fleeting selfhood's ties,But…

Disciple:While I am undergoing thy discipline and purification,While walking the holy way of renunciation,Let me behold the beauty of thy Purity;Reveal to me the Purity which is divine;For I would know the Highest, even Truth:I would gaze upon thy face, O Master!I would behold thy glory;I would see thee as…

A Sonnet on Purity

Would you be pure without, be pure within;Shun evil thoughts and entertain the good;Be in your heart as in your life you would;Thus only may you be secure from sin.If of our Island Home we guard the shores,And thus prevent our foes from landing here,Then of their getting inland is…
