Must I Have My Next Birth, O Lord!
Must I have my next birth, O Lord!
But not again this human birth-
At the solemn moments of the holy dawn
Welcoming the light with their tuneful calls-
Leading a life guided by nature
Taking easy both joys and sorrows-
Gracefully gliding on the moist winds
Bathing in tiny rivulets with fluttering wings-
Building nests amidst dense foliage
And floating on flowers to taste juicy fruits-
Yes, must my next birth be of such a bird;
Grant me god such a simple boon!
