We hear the echo now! Hark ! that sound again! A stark primeval sound blissful from the holes of a tiny bamboo flute !

Thus hollowed out and pure, Let that same primeval sound Tremble like a temple bell Right through our weary shell-- As if through dark infinite space And reach us to that final place Of bright eternal Bliss !!! ” :  “Hark!
