From a secret womb I have emerged,
A ray of bright infinitude,
Bare of all bondage, of all accretion purged,
A body of beauty, nascent and nude.
Plunged in the mysterious darkness of men
I met the blockade of a stony, gateless wall;
A diamond light beyond mortal ken
Opened my passage into the dim nether hall.
There in the dark eddies of thronging, thoughtless doom,
Twin foreboding serpent-coils sought me in embrace;
With them I rose in the subconscient’s lotus-bloom
Under a blue-gold drizzle on my uplifted face.
A lucent channel-ray from sun to higher sun,
Dancing on jewel-hoods, my new-being is begun.
