Stunning symmetry

(1188)  Nayaner ghum kere niye

Having snatched the sleep out of eyes
And crammed fragrance into shrines,
Washing darkness far aside,
In the late night He'd arrived.

With clouds the sky was abounding;
With concern the air was heavy.
To tell welcome none was there,
Hopefully then Him awaiting.

He had shown up notwithstanding;
He had romped with lute a-jingling.
But quietly He did leave,
No one coming to bid Him Godspeed.

  1. He came and went in silence, but when He spoke His voice resounded.
