FAREWELL, farewell, O brave and tender Sage.
O mystic jester, golden-hearted Child!
Selfless, serene, untroubled, unbeguiled
By trivial snares of grief and greed or rage;
O splendid dreamer in a dreamless age
Whose deep alchemic vision reconciled
Time's changing message with the undefiled
Calm wisdom of thy Vedic heritage!

Farewell, great spirit, without fear or flaw,
Thy life was love and liberty thy law,
And Truth thy pure imperishable goal ...
All hail to thee in thy transcendant flight
From hope to hope, from height to heav'nlier height,
Lost in the rapture of the Cosmic Soul.
