Distracted no more

(2601)  Sharada pradose

On an autumn evening,
On this autumn eve, with a gentle southern breeze,
Yourself a heart longs to acquire.
In a heady sky with scent of blooms very sweet,
It moves adrift beneath the moon's winning smile.

Today I've vanquished obstacles and tethers;
For Your sake I've set aside fear and bashfulness.
With the birds in a courtyard free,
Whereto flies away my mind?

At every step there had been earthly impediments;
I sang not that song rehearsed with diligence.
Oblivious to melody and forgetting rhythm,
Alas I had been asleep within confines.
