"Brother C,
Tell me, how is everything
On earth?"
Earth is crying.
Do you know why?
"No, I do not."
Earth is crying
All its protests
Against its transformation-life
Are ending in vain.
Brother, this is why
Earth is suffering
And, as you know,
Its suffering will never come to an end.
Before, only earth's heart
Was frightened
By brooding ignorance-night.
Now, earth's entire body-life
Is frightened to death
By illumining-consciousness-light.
