My arms open wide

(1173)  Jyotsna bhara raunin rate

On a multicolored night awash with moonlight,
Wings outspread, Who are You that arrived?
Observing You in my mind, it seems that I recognize;
Then maya's lampblack You applied.

In whispers the screwpine speaks:
"Such a chameleon is my Darling!
Always He feigns a man who is near;
But, any time, He goes into hiding."

The honeybee with words so sweet,
Humming in a way that's heartening,
Intimates: "Even though He's concealed,
Embrace is granted when implored persistently."
