COMMENCING AND CONCLUDING PRAYER
( FREELY RENDERED POEM BY BRO. A.S. MUNDKUR )
Spurn me not MOTHER DEAR,
From THY blessed LOTUS FEET.
Where else can I find a sympathetic ear ?
Where else safe retreat ?
Whom show the bleeding wounds,
Of my lacerated heart ?
How forget my bitter woes ?
To whom open my pent-up mind ?
What to eat and where to sleep ?
Or where in silence weep ?
Where find a seat, much less rest ?
Why live at all with a fallen crest ?
No, I will not leave Thee Mother Dear,
Who dares touch me or come so near,
Knowing me well as THINE own son ?
Futile will be Thy artful command,
Do THY worst but here let me die,
At THY FEET, saying " Mother " JAY MAI.
Defeat I own, my naughty son,
Wayward thou art, but thou hast won,
My lap throbs for thee, ever dear !
Come up, come up, have no fear.
Merciful MOTHER, I knew not THY lap's bliss,
As into this wide world I went forth,
There gained ample worldly wisdom,
Lost sweet innocence, Thy kingdom;
And my place on thy lap as a wicked son,
Oh ! accept me as I am, Blessed one.
