1577. The Ráhat
 
By John Jerome Rooney
 
 
UPON Nirwána’s brink the ráhat stood;
  Beneath him rolled the Ocean of the All:
Responsive flowed the current of his blood
  To meet the tidal call—
 
Save one red drop within his mortal veins        5
  Wherein the image of Zuleika shone;
He gazed a moment on Nirwána’s gains—
  And Earthward he was gone!
