Unseen and heard

(418)  Canderi sathe madhunishate

On a spring night in company with the moon,
The account of a lily stem's wishes
I will tell, unsleeping all the night.
In sweet lullaby on a gentle breeze,
To a fairy tale of dream
I'll now pay heed with all my heart.

Dreamland's messenger flew down and said:
"The lily stem's words float in the blue sky.
Scattered and told across the universe,
No longer can they stay unheard."

Ever afloat is the stream of dream,
A saga that mingles with formlessness.
In an arbor honeyed by lost minds,
A soundly sleeping bud will blossom.

  1. A soothing lullaby that reverses the oft-told adage that children are meant to be seen and not heard.
