From behind the veil…

Someone leaping from the rocks
Past me ran with windblown
locks

Like a startled bright sunrise
Visible to mortal eyes…

Just a cheek of frightened rose
That with sudden beauty glows,

Just a footstep like the wind
And a hurried glance behind,
And then nothing…as a thought
Escapes the mind ere it is caught.
Someone of the heavenly rout
From behind the veil ran out

Sri Aurobindo
