Collected Poems of Henry Derozio: Preface by Manu Samriti Chander; Edited by Amardeep Singh

Fakeer of Jungheera 1.4

  Alas! in fairest seeming souls 
The tide of guilt all blackly rolls; 
And then they steal religion's ray 
Upon its surface but to play: 
As o'er the darkest sea a gleam 
Of brightest sunshine oft may beam 
Gilding the wave, while dark beneath 
Are lurking danger, woe, and death.
