Meadows or Bugyal

 

Awakened to the lines that nature hides,

Attuned to her movements that exceed our ken,

He grew one with a covert universe.

His grasp surprised her mightiest energies' springs;

He spoke with the unknown Guardians of the worlds,

Forms he descried our mortal eyes see not.

His wide eyes bodied viewless entities,

He saw the cosmic forces at their work

And felt the occult impulse behind man's will.
