Divine Command1A white command from mysteries Above
Suddenly leads the Nation's Lance
To Chandernagore, the child of France,
Without his friends' advice of love.
A boat plying on the Ganges' breast
Carries Bengal's brave son away
To live hush-held all night and day
Within a secret, vigilant nest.
SAI 19. (1956)↩
