Solace and hope at times of sorrow

(1771)  Sudurer ahvane

With invitation from a remote place
With many songs, Who are You that came?
You demanded not a thing whatsoever;
Lyrics You made heard in whispers.

Rapidly and constantly, dew has dropped upon the grass;
Mind has got excited by night-jasmine's fragrance.
On the smiling kush-kash, Nature has danced,
Talkative in rhythm each and every instant.

When in low spirits, with light dressed in crimson,
Circled by planets and stars, the Zodiac amid,
Who are You that arrived, unperturbed and uninvited?
At a paradise in mind, embrace You granted.
