Winter madness

(94)  Shiiter kanpuni niye ele

Bringing winter shivers, You appeared...
Oh, Who are You,
And what is this, Your beauty?
Shrouding with snow the green fields,
Oh, Who are You,
And what is this, Your sweetness?

With a biting northern wind
On leafless roadside-tree bodies,
What unknown maxim have You writ...
Oh, what is this, Your indigence,
What is this, Your stinginess?

With blizzards setting hearts aquiver,
All herbs and creepers losing glamor,
What unknown song is getting sung;
Amid the love what is this callousness?
