Accounting for Him

(1781)  Tava bhalabasa kena ashru makha

Why is Your fondness lacquered with tears,
Hey Divine Being?
Why is Your visiting veiled in mystery?
Tell Your report please.

To science and philosophy You don't acquiesce;
What You want You don't say, on pleading or request.
You arrive to hold dear, and You simply cherish...
Oh my, such amazing sweetness!

To narcissism You give no indulgence;
You abolish far away perverse inclinations.
In artless love You reside, You dab loving kindness;
You fathom acute eagerness.
