He can't be caged in

(1793)  Thakibe na jadi mor ghare

If at my house You will not remain,
On this sweet night what's the reason that You came?
Throughout many an age I do await,
In my hand a new garland every day.

So gentle no one else is there...
From the mouth of everyone I go on hearing.
And a song of Your affection I am singing;
Why then is my outlook contrary?

So intense no one else is there...
Even with the thunder I find no analogy.
In that case, does it meet Your liking,
Being tender, to have been framed as severe?[1]
