Sri Chinmoy read a number of poems which he had written that morning to gathered seekers of world peace in the Peace Room of the Church Center for the United Nations.

My body tells you

My body tells You, Lord,
Not to scold me.
My body feels that I need
A little more rest.
I tell You, Lord,
If I am allowed
To get up at my own time
I shall love You,
I shall serve You,
I shall even glorify You.
