They Never Stop

Education never stops.

Self-transcendence never stops.

Perfection never stops.

Alas, only one thing

Not only stops but never properly begins:

Divine gratitude-flames

In human life.

The following fifteen poems were written o the flight from Delhi to Frankfurt on 1 November 1979
