Poem


Socrates

Although thy pen was silent, mute,
A sea of knowledge dire
In thee the world of yore had seized.
Thy voice was Spirit's fire.
All wealth and ease of the world sublime
Thy deeds were apt to disdain.
Therefore thy spouse, Xantippe,
Was tortured by a ceaseless pain.
Many a foe of giant cloud
Against thy knowledge stood.
But gloom saw its doom in thee,
With thee thy high manhood.

Poem


Plato

Plato, a man of noble birth and deeds-
Socrates conquered his life.
The words of his guide highly ever he preached.
His brain, a naked knife.
Through him his youth revealed an athlete great.
To him utterly owes
Philosophy and the budding minds of today.
Fearless, ever he glows.
The deathless day that brought his soul on earth
Appeared in secret again,
To close his diamond eyes and bind the world
With sombre ceaseless pain.

Poem


Your Teachers


Let the sky

Become

Your teacher.

You will learn

How to serve.



Let the moon

Become

Your teacher.

You will learn

How to love.



Let the sun

Become

Your teacher.

You will learn

How to become.

Poem


My Teachers
My outer schoolteacher

Carefully tells me

What I can eventually achieve.

My inner schoolteacher

Compassionately tells me

What I can ultimately become.

My Beloved Supreme

Smilingly tells me

What I eternally am.

Poem


I Have Three Teachers


I have three teachers:

My soul, my heart and my mind.

My soul-teacher tells me

That it is not a difficult task

To love God.

My heart-teacher tells me

That it is not a difficult task

To love mankind.

My mind-teacher tells me

That it is absolutely

The most difficult task

To love myself.

Poem


Mother, if I lose to You
Mother, if I lose to You,

That is my only Victory.

Whatever I have given into Your Hands

Is my only savings.

To me the rest is of no value,

A mere waste,

And it only tortures me and

Stands as a burden on my way.

I cannot put it to use.

When I lose to You,

After I have achieved

My full
realisation
,

I know my greatest reward I shall receive.

Poem


Aristotle

O Aristotle, O mind's vastness of your day,
Your youth was reckless and wild.
But your brain never exiled
The thought that clasped the myriad knowledge-ray.
Yours was the student Alexander the Great.
The mighty culture Greek
Slowly began to leak
With you, Aristotle; and now reigns a huge regret.

Poem


Virgil


Virgil, the giant poet
Of blessed Rome,
His poems pined to see
Perfection's home.
'Aeneid', his great soulful gift,
Declared his name.
With victory's deathless flame
He plays his game.
