I have weighed anchor

(2519)  Praner srote bhasiye dilum

Upon life's stream I set adrift
My fragmentary boat of song.
No longer remained ties to shore;
To rhythm without limit it is swaying back and forth.

There is no backward tug of attachment now;
The kettledrums of victory are ringing out...
Dejected heart, equipped was roused
By dance and hymn and melody once more.

My long-gone, former days,
Capering they arrived, become amazed...
By saying with a smile: "I am going sailing",
I have fractured a close dungeon.
