An Ancient Shaivite Poem

An Ancient Shaivite Poem as told by Krishna Das on the album,’Pilgram Heart’.

 

Strong is the elephant

But could you say,

less strong the goad?

 

Strong is the mountain

But could you say,

Less strong the thunder bolt?

 

Strong is the darkness

But could you say,

Less strong the light?

 

Strong is oblivion

But could you say,

Less strong the heart that loves you?
