THE MOTHER’S SAVITRI: Book 5 Canto 1

The Mother Reads Selections from Savitri by Sri Aurobindo

 

Book 5. The Book of Love.

Canto 1. The Destined Meeting-Place.

But now the destined spot and hour were close;
Unknowing she had neared her nameless goal.
. . .
Pale waters ran like glimmering threads of pearl.
A sigh was straying among happy leaves;
Cool-perfumed with slow pleasure-burdened feet
Faint stumbling breezes faltered among flowers,
The white crane stood, a vivid motionless streak,
Peacock and parrot jewelled soil and tree,
The dove’s soft moan enriched the enamoured air
And fire-winged wild-drakes swam in silvery pools.
[pp. 389-390]
* * *
A matted forest-head invaded heaven
As if a blue-throated ascetic peered
From the stone fastness of his mountain cell
Regarding the brief gladness of the days;
His vast extended spirit couched behind.
[pp. 390-391]

There is nothing sentimental in the true weeping that comes from the soul. All that you feel now is the blossoming of the psychic being in you and the growth of a real bhakti.
