Deeper and deeper

(1848)  Tomare jabe dekhechinu

When I had seen You,
I knew not Your details.
Mentally discerning Your face,
The Avatar of Song I had hailed.

Your smile and looking at You
Satisfied all of life's yearning.
With a sea of melody amid thought's darkness,
In You, the Avatar of Mind I discovered.

I found at Your core
Humankind's necklace of love...
And in gaps among Your summons,
What a jangling sound of life unbound!
Mind's heptachord, in You absorbed,
Free from hesitation, at that time it sang out
With Your music's devotion,
Songs but Yours, hey Avatar of Consciousness.
