(S 1)
He spoke and ceased and left the earthly scene.
(S 2)
899 Away from the strife and suffering on our globe,
He turned towards his far-off blissful home.
(S 3)
A brilliant arrow pointing straight to heaven,
The luminous body of the ethereal seer
Assailed the purple glory of the noon
904 And disappeared like a receding star
Vanishing into the light of the Unseen.
(S 4)
But still a cry was heard in the infinite,
And still to the listening soul on mortal earth
A high and far imperishable voice
909 Chanted the anthem of eternal love.
