The Magesty Emerged

My running mind demurred
To cease its sophistry,
Levying doubt it blurred
Knowledge with its fee.

                              My beating heart refused
                              Beats of a sweeter thrill,
                              With sentiment effused
                              Its worldly quadrille.

Tier on tier of habit
I ripped from belly to brow:
An inner lamp was lit
In a golden-orange glow.

                              With gaping disbelief
                              My mind forgot to brood,
                              My heart devoid of grief
                              Dumb and alert stood.

The spirit that is in the sun
Awoke in my bosom blind,
From that cave it won
And ruled my heart and mind.

1986
