Like a silkworm weaving
her house with love
from her marrow,
Don't despise me as
She who has no one
I'm not one to be afraid,
Whatever you do.
Sunlight made visible
the whole length of a sky,
movement of wind
male and female,
blush when a cloth covering their shame
You're like milk
In water: I cannot tell
What comes before,
Would a circling surface vulture
know such depths of sky
as the moon would know?
O Lord, listen to me if you will, listen not
if you will not: I cannot rest contented
unless I sing of you.
I have fallen in love, O mother with the
Beautiful One, who knows no death,
knows no decay and has no form
Oh! Lord your Maya does not give me up even
When I have given it up. In spite of my
resistance it clings to me and follows me.
