Test yourself


Test yourself, my dear
When you are alone
At night, while sleeping on bed.
Test yourself, what are you
And what you wish in life.
Wishing not anything is great
Wishing means attaching with this and that
Attaching means defeating in life.
You must keep detach from everything
Or they detach and not reluctant to
Delete you from their own books -
This is the tradition and convention
Of life so far it is being practise
And you are the bait this and that.

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
