Seventeen Seventy-Six, O Fourth of July


Seventeen seventy-six, O Fourth of July,

You gave America the Independence-sky.

Nineteen forty-seven, O Fifteenth of August,

You blessed India’s Independence forever to last.

The dominions of Britons disappeared,

The friendship of Britons endeared.

Oneness-smile, oneness-dance, oneness-embrace:

Three hearts grow into the Lord’s Satisfaction-Face.
