Poems from: “The Master-Key of the Global Heart”
A man in a million,
A heart in a billion
A soul in a trillion.”
“You are the most beloved
Of the chosen few
To be garlanded
By Father-God in Heaven
And Mother-God on earth
For your supremely unparalleled contributions
Toward changing the face and fate
Of the suffering world-community.”
“Freedom-grower, Freedom-giver, Freedom-delight!
The liberator-sun of the world's division-night.
Earth and Heaven's oneness-thrill.
Gorbachev, Gorbachev, all-where, the peace-blossom-tree.
The master-key of the global heart, bondage-world free.”
“Two Germanys have emptied
Their streaming tears
And blinding fears
Inside your vastness-oneness-heart.”
On his 70th birthday-
March 2nd, 2001-
The heart of the entire world
Sing most gratefully, most sweetly
And most hauntingly
Beneath his giant life-tree.”
“To join President Gorbachev
Is to join a wisdom-inundated circle
And encircle the world-transformation-miracle.”
Smilingly and confidently
Are shaping the world
Through the hands
Of His beloved son,
