All Conquering Love. Dedicated to Genna East by Manatita
To:- Genna East, for her graciousness, elegance, inner sweetness and style.
All Conquering Love, burning
Bright, brighter, brightest into this yearning child,
Who can equal Your grandeur and glory?
Out of the fiery chasm of my penury,
You emerge as a resplendent Light.
As the child nibbles delicately on ice-cream treats,
So do Your delights wipe clean, my dark stains of anger,
And, like a zephyr, You blow away
The cobwebs of my restless mind.
Beloved, in the triumph of Your exultation,
Is the mother’s cradling of the new-born.
While in the flutter of a lover’s heart,
Lies Your kernel of joyful tears,
In the presence of her paramour.
You beat in the heart of the impoverished,
And the Path to the downtrodden,
Is paved with Thy mercy.
So when the virgin dawn appears,
May it diminish the emptiness of our yesterdays,
Whispers with the hope of a radiant sunshine,
And so alleviate our burdens, to grant us Peace.
