Does freshness of thought

Does freshness of thought
Exist in any school?
And do the sanctums provide
Pleasures esoteric?

Thy goal is far away,
The journey a Herculean task;
Is there a leader of men,
Who could guide this caravan?

This war for faith is greater
Than the Khayber war;
Is there in our age
A warrior as brave as Ali?

Beyond the realm of knowledge
Are pleasures for the Muslim—
he pleasures of ecstasy,
The pleasures of a vision.

Discerning eyes can see
In the luminous dome of the West,
Cracks and rifts at the base,
Shattering glass at the top.
