It's a new day

(983)  Mama madhavii kuinje puinje puinje

Swarming in this myrtle grove of mine,
Oh dear, why buzz the bumblebees?
In the kadam bower's blue lotus of mind,
Whose light is shining presently?

Within the mind a southern breeze has blown;
And in that warming wind screwpine have told:
"Keep awake, keep your eyes peeled today;
The Traveler wants to grant His embrace"

Phalgun has arrived; a fire it has lit
Upon the fruitless palash trees of forest.
Now the rains have ended with hope fulfilled;
All the fog is lifted.
