The song Celestial.

Sir Edwin Arnold.
Sir Edwin Arnold’s poetic translation of the Bhagavad Gita, titled “The Song Celestial”…
Never the spirit was born; the spirit shall cease to be never;
Never was time it was not; End and Beginning are dreams!
Birthless and deathless and changeless remaineth the spirit for ever;
Death hath not touched it at all, dead though the house of it seems!
“You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not?’”
George Bernard Shaw
