In a flower



(1159)  Rauner melay esechile tumi

You'd arrived with a festival of color;
In a flower-show, is there such glamor?
With enchanting magic You had risen,
Smiling in both youthfulness and sweetness.

On the first morning You had been solitary;
Stealthily You'd let Yourself get revealed.
With Your glee, Your touch of vitality,
Earth had filled with greenery.

With jingling sounds You had capered,
Ever executing diverse steps.
With entranced bliss under Your spell,
The mortal world's been enthused by what grandeur?

Nothing is hidden



(1158)  Gane gane eso

In song after song please arrive,
Pulverizing psyche's pride.
Life after life, please commingle,
Ridding the limits of meanness.

In whose mind what exists
That is thought in secret?
You know everything equally;
You proceed, scrutinizing everybody.

Outside You there is nothing;
In both joy and sorrow You are everybody's sanctuary.
Everybody's history in like manner You consider;
You proceed, keeping watch on everyone.

His mercy



(1157)  Ke go ele sudha jhara

Oh Who did come, dripping moonlight?
All darkness pushing aside,
You made the earth bright.

With You is my acquaintance
Of so many ages, but who knows anyway!
With a glitter of new light today,
You did generate a cascade.

Come into my life, come into my psyche,
With a form enchanting, in complete privacy.
All hopes to satisfy and the mind to fill,
Lovely One, You are full of sweetness.

No mere IOU



(1156)  Ke go tumi ele maneri majhe

Oh Who arrived inside my mind?
Sky and air, upon Your music,
Vibrated, they've grown feverish therein.

You desire nothing, nothing do You ask;
Always giving something, You don't want to grab.
Yet, for the sake of giving something, I am awake;
But even by mistake, Your kindly eyes don't crave.

Nothing small do You desire from my side,
I realize You but want my sense of "I".
I have loved, in the mind have I been frenzied;
To give everything, mind is now ready.

So far away



(1155)  Jyotsna nishiithe niirave nibhrte, tomar lagiya racechi gan

At moonlit midnight, silently and privately,
I've composed a song for Thee.
Listen to my story, understand my agony;
Bring to a close anxiety.

There's just one thing I am saying:
I'm in love, so why don't You come near?
So much distance is far too severe;
Now let there be an end to it.

Just one pain needs explaining:
For pranam[1] to make, I don't get near.
Whatever's there for me to speak,
I would present at yonder feet.

Bewildered



(1153)  Aji mor vasanta jhariya jay avahelay

Today, my springtime is declining... by neglect.
The extant honey dribbling, leaves are getting shed.
And blossoms, before time they are wizened... by neglect.

From floral grove the gentle breeze has gone away.
With dust-storm its throbbing grace has got encased.
Where oh where are You... in these evil days?

With new beauty please arrive; cast a smile full of life.
Come to make understand, to guide those who are mystified.
Oh my, except for you none exists... at this baleful time.

Ethereal



(1152)  Maneri majhare gopane agocare

Within the mind, secretly and unnoticed,
You'd arrived, oh my Darling Dearest.
None did see, none did know,
That love of Yours, oh Peerless One.

On autumn eves and upon dusk in summer,
In smiling spring with its floral fragrance,
You had laughed and sung a song;
One can't fathom my emotions!

The sweet jingle of Your ankle-bells,
It overwhelms all thoughts perplexed.
You had danced and uttered words–
Those words heavenly, like ambrosia!
