Here and there

(957)  Tumi kahar tare acho patha ceye

For Whose sake are you staring at the path,
Your hair in braids, a threaded garland in hand?
What sort of mind-thief has won your heart?
On being loved, He departs, keeping afar.

In this heavy rain with what conviction
Did you get yourself completely drenched?
Who is He, ever new and ever fresh?
From this world He left you abstracted.

On what river current have you gone off sailing
To what radiant land, smiling softly?
Who is He, always tranquil but at play unappeased?
He drew you to a place that's honey-sweet.
