A flood of light

(2998)  Alojhara shravanii sandhyay

On this light-dripping Shravan evening,
Upon a restless breeze with a lilting resonance,
To a far distance my mind goes a-floating.

Silently coming a southern wind,
Today to me it did speak in whispers:
"Don't go anywhere, you remain here;
The one you want, He also wants to appear.

"So much nightfall has left, and so many nights;
Gone have days aplenty, so much lunar daytime.
Keep in mind on this day will arrive that Guest Divine,
By Whose smile the world becomes giddy."
