What changed?

(1464)  Vasante mor phulavane priya

In spring in my floral garden, Love,
You came not... why did You not come?
Blooms have withered, and petals have fallen;
Nectar's intoxication You got not.

For braid-bun I am stringing a garland,
The part in my hair with oleander I've adorned–
On earlobes I have dangled silk-tree's flower–
Yet, having come, You looked not.

Now sitting neath ashok tree's shade,
A song I am composing for only Your sake.
Spring left, and summer came...
After so many days, there was compassion.
