The look of love

(1290)  Anupama rupe susmita niipe

In peerless beauty, in a smiling kadam,
Like a flower strewn, You please come.
In white lily and blue lotus, and in the screwpine stamen,
Like a peacock-tail or pennant, You please grin.

In a damp-close wind and in kohl-darkened firmament,
In music baritone and in a thunderbolt's revelation,
Like the pleasant panic of a lightning bug's glow,
Integrated with such raiment, You please float.

Twixt You and me the heart-exchange,
No one knows when it had taken place.
That fond attachment, a love everlasting,
'Twas not proclaimed by even any history.
