In the 'I' of a puny creature

(2229)  Jyoti ujjval pranocchal

Oh the light lustrous and lively,
You are dear, You are dear.
With a grave sonority on a restless wind,
Ever You've remained fit to welcome respectfully.

With many strings I would keep binding Thee;
With many real, many unreal, I go to achieve.
But constantly I stay busy with my I-feeling;
So this 'I', take it please, making Yours.

With my own strength I won't get to apprehend;
I'll not manage to restrain with my spider-thread.
Accordingly, being gracious, please do yield;
Remember this, my entreaty earnest.

  1. This spiderweb of mine cannot hold light captured. So though I strive, only by You is success assured.
