Wedding night

(1428)  Tandra bhuliya gechi

Slumber I have forgotten,
Oh Sleepless One, my Dearest.
In moonlight have I discovered
Love of You, beyond comparison.

Jasmine fragrance is adrift upon a humid wind;
The river dances with delight on this frenzied night.
Haltingly a peacock's call goes forth,
The gloom of mind, having cast off.

Arisen with the crickets is a star of distant heavens;
Hawk cuckoo is lost, rapt in rhythm and song.
Choosing husband is the intuition,
Suspense like an ocean.
