Do Neglect All Your Dear Creations
Do neglect all your dear creations,
And all people and worldly contacts;
Do neglect all your hot earthly passions,
Think in days, and say prayers in nights.
If your spirit is burning and troubling,
Drive your high inspiration away,
Only wisdom is ready for coming
To Great Night from the life’s everyday.
On the earth you will not be awarded.
In clear spirits before the God’s face,
Slow fade in a right, lone mode
At the leave of the icon lamp’s blaze.
