Who does not love Him!

(1943)  Nandana vane ke ele

Who arrived at the Garden of Eden,
Coated by sandal fragrance,
Bathed in snow's pure water,
Face veiled with moonlight?

The sunflower, looking skyward it declares:
"Except for Him there is naught that I crave.
To Him my mind I have given, to Him my life I have given,
On this earth staying alive only for Him."

From its core innermost sings the bakul tree:
"Out of love for Him, a sweet scent my blooms carry.
Him I revere in psyche, Him I draw near to me,
Storing sweetness in my heart on account of Him only."
