Let me restate my case

(1790)  Kandiye bhasao tabu kena

You cast adrift on tears, and yet why
In a corner of the eye is a smile sweet?
What is this cosmic sport but a game unkind;
Notwithstanding, You declare, "I hold dear"!

What's this love insufferable–
Sometimes lament, sometimes laughter?
In a wink You depart and come back next minute,
Entering with flowers the psychic pavilion.

Yourself having left, I cannot endure;
Mind's honey oozes forth.
Heart brimming, I remember You;
Why dance buoyant at my core?
