This poem by Sri Aurobindo in quantitative hexameter is a marvel of mystical poetry.
Old nature sits a phantom by the way,
Old passions may forbid, old doubts return.
Then are there other lives here or beyond
To satisfy us. I will persist, O Lord.
Humanity, acceptable I find
Thy ages that have wept out sweat and blood,
Since all was made to give its utter price
To one wild moment of thy hidden God.
Still, still my soul remembered its delight,
Denying mind, and midst the body’s pain,
I laughed contented.
O joy of gaining all the soul’s desire!
O stranger joy of the defeat and loss!
O heart that yearnest to uplift the world!
It is a prayer of the conversion of the Asura.
