On to summer and back to Him

(108)  Raodrer kharatape

In the grueling heat of the sun,
In the scorching heat of summer...

Evening jasmines and gentle winds
Bring some coolness,
But the mind craves more.

From their load, mango tree branches stoop;
With row upon row of fruit, rose-apple shrubs droop.
None can endure this extreme heat—
Ever the mind says so.

Breezy nights and fragrant flowers
Bring some relief,
But the mind craves more.

All the countless hardships over countless rebirths
Seem to have fused in summer.
Oh awesome Lord, send down rain—
Ever the mind says so.
