(685)  Kon alor rajya hate esecho

From what kingdom of light have You arrived,
To fill all minds with sweetness,
To pour the nectar of affection,
Taking on the burdens of life!

Today, on my dry riverbed a flood has arisen,
A flood of never-ending flower pollen.
In melodic notes comes a soulful ode
To carry one and all, making them our own.

Today, my long-tailed cuckoo's call intones a perfect fifth,[1]
Bursting all barriers with exuberant emotion.
A stream of melody goes on flowing,
Bearing ambrosia of exquisite beauty.
