To the mind20

(At Chandernagore — February 1910)

O mind!
think not,
The more you think, the more you see
    The sombre knot.

    Above the chain
Of ignorant virtue and blinded sin
    In Truth remain.

    Arouse your Will
From the depths of gloom and faster turn
    Your evolving wheel.

    In you the flood
Of God's gold Vision to create
    Deathless life-blood!
