198. I Perched in the Many Trees of Lives and Sang Thy Songs

I, the nightingale of heaven, perched on the boughs of many lives, singing Thy songs.

My clear song reverberates over soul‐leaves that utter with Thy life. It thrills the night air in the private gardens of centuries, where many sleep, dreaming sweet fantasies or, again, nightmares of delusion. It wakens some of them with soft touches of Thy reverberating, cosmic song.

I fly everywhere, and give concerts to express Thy joy in bowers of receptive hearts. Oh! I will come again and again to lure all souls with my songs, and to teach them Thy songs, and invite them all to y, like me, in Thy skies of cosmic freedom.
