Candles and incense



(526)  Dhupe diipe manera madhute

With candles, incense, and the honey of my psyche,
I am making an altar for Thee.
My Darling, being late You only
Leave me swimming in tears.

Taking pains, a garland I am stringing;
I've laid out my flower tray sincerely.
With but a tender smile, come sit so near
That all my wanting and receiving is complete.

With restless thoughts, toward You I am moving;
But with steady incantation, of You I am thinking.
With pollen that love and devotion sprinkled,
With nectar's essence, a song I am composing.

  1. At some stage the singer and the song become one.
