The light-brigade

(1411)  Alo jhara sharat sanjhe

On light-dripping autumn evening,
In the fog of my psyche,
Nothing did I get to see;
I was in a darkness gloomy.

Light in hand came those for whom
The emblem of light was theirs.
Enlisting with them to take leave,
I could not, due to vanity.

With the light went those for whom
Light's wayfarers were they.
Along with them to proceed,
I could not, due to frailty.

  1. Earlier I was too weak to enroll, but now I would associate. Tell me, Lord, is it too late?
