Page 308 - BREHM his own Mind survey'd, As mortal eyes (thus finite we compare With infinite) in smoothest mirrors gaze : . Swift, at his look, a shape supremely fair Leap'd into being with a boundless blaze, That fifty suns might daze. Primeval MAYA was the Goddess nam'd, Who to her sire, with Love divine inflam'd, A casket gave with rich Ideas fill'd, . From which this gorgeous Universe he fram'd; For, when th' Almighty will'd Unnumber'd worlds to build, • From Unity diversified he sprang, While gay Creation...
Page 330 - Cailasa's top, where every stem Glow'd with a vegetable gem, Mahe'sa stood, the dread and joy of men; While Parvati, to gain a boon, Fix'd on his locks a beamy moon, And hid his frontal eye, in jocund play, With reluctant sweet delay. All nature straight was lock'd in dim eclipse, Till Brahmans pure, with hallow'd lips, And warbled prayers, restored the day; When Ganga from his brow, by heavenly fingers press'd, Sprang radiant, and, descending, graced the caverns of the west.
Page 286 - When high on eagle-plumes he rides : But oh ! what pencil of a living star Could paint that gorgeous car, In which, as in an ark supremely bright, The lord of boundless light Ascending calm o'er th' empyrean sails, And with ten thousand beams his awful beauty veils.
Page 265 - WHEN time was drown'd in sacred sleep. And raven darkness brooded o'er the deep, — Reposing on primeval pillows Of tossing billows, The forms of animated nature lay ; Till o'er the wide abyss, where love Sat like a nestling dove, From heaven's dun concave shot a golden ray.
Page 284 - Oikadhfs transcendent beam Burning in the darkest glade ? Will no lov'd name thy gentle mind persuade Yet one short hour to shed thy cooling stream ? But ah ! we court a passing dream : Our...
Page 240 - AjftElion ever true, Graces thy side, her vest of glowing hue, And in her train twelve blooming girls advance, Touch golden strings and knit the mirthful dance. Thy dreaded implements they bear, And wave them in the scented air, Each with pearls her neck adorning, Brighter than the tears of morning. Thy crimson ensign, which before them flies, Decks with new stars the sapphire skies.
Page 306 - SFIIIT of Spirits ! who through ev'ry part Of space expanded and of endless time, Beyond the stretch of lab'ring thought sublime, Bad'st uproar into beauteous order start, Before Heav'n was, thou art : Ere spheres beneath us roll'd, or spheres above, Ere Earth in firmamental ether hung, Thou...
Page 240 - He with fresh arrows fills thy quiver, (Sweet the gift and sweet the giver!) And bids the many-plumed warbling throng Burst the pent blossoms with their song. He bends the luscious cane, and twists the string With bees, how sweet! but ah, how keen their sting. ! He with five flow'rets tips thy ruthless darts, Which thro...
Page 369 - What the sun and light are to this visible world, that are the Supreme Good and Truth to the intellectual and invisible universe ; and as our corporeal eyes have a distinct perception of objects enlightened by the sun, thus our souls acquire certain, knowledge by meditating on the light of truth which emanates from the Being of beings ; that is the light by which alone our minds can be directed in the path to beatitude.
Page 304 - ... induced many of the wisest among the ancients, and some of the most enlightened among the moderns, to believe that the whole creation was rather an energy than a work, by which the Infinite Being who is present at all times and in all places, exhibits to the minds of his creatures a set of perceptions, like a wonderful picture or piece of music, always varied, yet always uniform...
