In a famous scientific biography of Sri Aurobindo, published from
New York, I find intentions somewhat malevolent, may be I will take
up its comments on Poetry shortly. Apart from this - how this poem
is not in the collected poems of SAICE? please refer - In The
Moonlight - a golden dream- yes he may have loved Shelley-

The old shall perish; it shall pass away,
Expunged, annihilated, blotted out;
And all the iron bands that ring about
Man?s wide expansion shall at last give way.

Freedom, God, Immortality, the three
Are one and shall be realised at length;
Love, Wisdom, Justice, Joy and utter Strength
Gather into a pure felicity.

It comes at last, the day foreseen of old,
What John in Patmos saw, what Shelley dreamed,
Vision and vain imagination deemed,
The City of Delight, the Age of Gold.

- In The Moonlight - Sri Aurobindo.
