Understanding is overrated

(1872)  Niil akashe tarar deshe

On blue sky in starry territory,
Which music comes a-floating,
Having blanketed the world and intoxicated psyche
With some unknown ecstasy from a remote sphere?

I don't have the wisdom of comprehension,
Though a hundred times I look upward...
Hey everyone's Beloved, I wonder,
With what hope do You go on singing?

Paired to the world is a beauty that is Yours;
Its depth my intellect does not discover...
Fruitless is all logic and reason;
In the end emerges only a speck of mercy.
