    A Turban'd Man ! The owner of the skies !
    I hear his footfalls in the garden of my heart, my life throbs in his lotus feet !
    Eternal are his Turban Folds of Love !
    The planets wait as birds in nests as at close of night, for the Dawn that breaks above them.
    He is the king of Creation's heart; he wears the crown of love-grown cotton and love-spun thread and love-woven cloth.
    His crown is made of the rolling Waves of the Sea of Light !
    Has not the Sun dropped from those Turban Folds ?
    The stars were scattered abroad at night in the sky,
    Above them I saw the Edge of his Crown of Mists !
    The beaming Faces said, "Tis Mid-night Moon," But I, of lower rank than they, at night, while digging earth, murmured slowly to myself within, lest someone heard my word: It is the light from his Turbanned Brow .
