A sky lantern

(1968)  Megher pare megh eseche

Clouds upon clouds have appeared,
Tunes upon music-strains.
I do not know You, but after arriving,
Off You sail, far away.

You dote on me from remote;
But on Your own You come close also.
You keep on watching with loving eyes,
Sweet ankle bells having chimed.

Throughout the universe, You're the Best Person;
I'm a paper balloon on the sky of ideation.
In my bosom having wrapped the lamp of time,
To that unfamiliar fortress I now fly.

  1. Presumptuous though it may be, unworthy though I may be, with what courage I can muster I dare to approach Thee.
