NIRVANA, by                    
First Line: If I could be like the clover
Last Line: With god's great broom . . .
Subject(s): Heaven; Paradise

If I could be like the clover,
Patient and still;
Turning from fevered pleasures,
Resigning my will.

Folding my hands together
Softly in prayer;
As clover-leaves are folded
From evening air.

Then I might weave a poem
On mystic loom,
Delicate, fresh and simple
As clover bloom.

If I could sweep me bare
With God's great broom . . .
