Both soft and hardhearted

(1844)  Ke go tumi ei abelay

Oh Who are You on this late afternoon?
To my house You came but then did leave.
Uninvited, unproclaimed, You appeared;
You departed on love's stream.

You know magic– I perceive;
You know sport– also that I concede.
My perception, my concession...
On Your anklets do they ring?

You know how to make smile and make cry;
But having held dear, You draw one nigh.
With an aggregate of contradictions,
Yourself You have fashioned.
