This world has its charms

(3069)  Jyotsna dile phul photale

Moonlight You gave, blooms to grow You made;
Why Yourself, oh You came not?
Mind having drenched, far away You remained;
Why embrace You granted not?

Like the rise of early morn You are revealed;
The crimson hue is produced by You only.
In all qualities You are excelling;
Your equivalent, there is not.

Why do You stay unseen, kindly come before me;
With mind's stylish grace, close by take a seat.
Fascinating flute in hand, please smile sweetly;
Bide no longer yon.

In every season of life

(3068)  Ei ghana nabha niile ele

Upon the same sky-blue deep, You appeared
To a heart love-replete.
Month, season, and year, far behind they all leave
An inapt time's dwelling.

In Phalgun You are perfume in the mind of myrtle;
In the flaming palash arbor, the colorful luster.
You are everything I know and what I don't discern;
This today You revealed.

Under Summer's heat You are the shooting star;
On silvery clouds, a buoyant flight of geese in Fall.
In the Spring, covered by fresh green leaves delicate,
The path upon, You proceed.

My nectar is all for Thee

(3067)  Ceyechi ami tomare shudhu

You alone have I craved;
You're the floral dust of love,
The smiling moon in outer space.

Through many ages it's You I have wanted,
Though that is not written inside chronicles.
Emitted in vain is a lot of eye-water
For just You, the Lover from but remote place.

In a dense forest or in the mind's recess,
Stealthily I've kept on calling Yourself.
Inside a hopeful psyche even at present,
My thought's honey I store and retain.

Don't be blind

(3066)  Akash shonay gan chande sure

Sky croons a song in rhythm and melody;
Ever from the air exudes Your majesty.
Perfume is infusing a floral assembly,
Stooped under the weight of honey.

A divine atmosphere have You brought;
Upon Earth's dust You've poured out love.
To a mute mouth You've given dulcet tongue;
Resounding through the lips two, smiling.

Master, You are beauty's agent,
The gemmed lamp that's never quenched.
Without sense, foolish we cry nonetheless,
Blindfolded and cooped up in dwelling.

On wings of song was I set free

(3065)  Ganeri sur bhese elo

Only a song's melody came floating;
Into my mind did it come.
It gave a jolt to the psyche;
I know not the reason.

Wrapped in dust had been that mind of mine;
To remote place its wings could not fly.
Coated had they been by low thought trite,
But to the far sky they do soar.

Confined at home had been my thought;
Restrictive ties broken, it sails far off.
To rhythm and melody dances a bird caged up;
He goes flying toward the Only One.

My devotion won't abate

(3064)  Je vahnishalaka jvalale

The torch You ignited
Won't be quenched at any time.
By way of Your love and fondness,
Be aware that flame will shine.

With amity's passion You abide;
You've been rapt in great delight...
You stay dancing mid the mind,
A dense sweetness honey-like.

What endures and what's departed,
What is still to come as yet...
In Your mind all things are present;
Ancient One, You do not die.

When You arrive

(3063)  Tumi esechile esechile esechile

You had come, You had come, You'd arrived,
Hurt pride having ignored.
This earth had been filth-slippery;
A golden flood You brought.

Amid sweetness You poured a fragrant scent;
Love's luster set aside the threat.
The sun appeared on darkness dense;
It became light's expedition.

Life came floating to the undeveloped,
A tune in the river, dulcet notes in arbor.
With a lyre's jingle is the mind's pavilion;
Sang it Your triumphant song.

And for now I still do

(3062)  Kal kata rate kuvalay hate

Blue lotus in hand, late last night
At the grove washed with moonlight,
You had arrived.
Deep asleep was I; upon the mirror of mind
You had sat, but I have no sight.

Explaining what is understood does not work;
As much as heard, it is not learned.
Sweetness golden, in a cage it does not endure;
All of it floats away, stream of memory alike.

This my pain, did You not fathom it?
Tale of mine, did You not hear it?
Your own atom, could You not recognize it?
Is that why You'd simply smiled?

Oh to make happy

(3061)  Jege basechilum

Awake had I waited...
For Your sake, Lord, on account of Thee,
A lantern I had lit
At gloomy depths of my psyche.

Many an age arrived and left;
Many lifetimes ended.
Your kindness did not happen;
You came not, Lord, to my dwelling.

Many white jessamines fell;
Many shephalii wilted.
Crying, so much moonlight went
With lament in both Fall and Spring.

(3060)  Tomay ami ceye gechi

Observing You, on have I gone,
Within my mind, in my own psyche.
So I find no seat abroad;
I want to preserve privately.

You'll come down to dust of earth;
This thing, how shall I endure!
To rosy feet, to tender feet,
In which life will I render grief!

In my mind is a gold chair,
Jewel-adorned for Your sake.
Smiling You'll come, decked take seat,
Making my eyes highly pleased.

A winsome liberation

(3059)  Tomare ceyechi mor kache kache

Yourself I have craved so very nigh
At this festival of light...
Music full of tune and rhyme
With this lifetime's wine.

In the universe none is praiseworthy as You;
So I keep saying: "beyond and free from attribute".
We obtain the aggregate of all virtues
By the realization only Thine.

We don't find compassion like unto You;
Ever You continue playing mercy's lute.
In the sky of mind we gain liberty and final rescue
Upon Mohan's[1] coming into sight.

Must I ask You to remember me?

(3058)  Je gan tumi geye gele

The song that You kept singing,
On just its echo lingering,
Far away do I go floating.
The lamp You had been igniting,
Its flame shines through ages aplenty.

You are the Deity, Agent of Compassion;
Except for You I've no other Savior.
Come-and-go is by Your will, Director;
You know, meticulously.

From the Creation's first dawning,
Pervasively, ever You accompany.
Upon Your stream I've kept floating;
May You not forget me.

Despite the fact You're always with me

(3057)  Andhare tumi ele

You entered the darkness,
Infusing effulgence.
Far away went the fatigue;
The gloom withdrew in a moment.

The clouds that accumulated,
Life they had been veiling.
Your sweetness-vehemence,
You set it a-sailing.
Making me free from burden,
To me You did pull adjacent.

Lord, You've remained along;
Never unaccompanied is there one.
And yet I've wept, even of this conscious;
Those tears shed, today You have made forget.

Chasing the Limitless

(3056)  Maner mayur ure jay

The mental peacock, it goes flying;
It goes, it moves, it proceeds.
It knows not any blockade;
No heed to taboo does it pay.
It dances on, spreading tail,
To which uncharted sphere.

Crossing hills, roads, and waterways,
Leaping over wide, bare, open space,
To groves of kans grass giving sway,
It runs, it hies, it speeds.

My Beloved, worthy aim of musing mine,
The aggregate of every attribute combined,
You are the gem of everybody's eye;
All crave, they pine, they long for Thee.

Long ago why did You entice me?

(3055)  Ajana pathik ek esechilo

One Unknown Pilgrim, He had come,
Giving mind a swing.
With lips He'd beamed a sweet grin;
The reason not briefed.

Over an age I'd waited, watching street;
Much belated You fulfilled my longing.
So much moonlight has transpired weeping
In a heart struck by grief.

Blooms have dropped, full of honeyed scent;
Many a world has danced in love's excitement.
Whereto have they gotten lost at present,
Having sung a song to me?
