I celebrate the cosmos with its infinite
Multitude of suns, moons, stars and planets.
I celebrate the lovely and exuberant world
With its blue sky, and oceans,
Let me be happy today.
I will let nothing hinder me.
Neither the laugh of the gale in the casuarinas
Nor the running riots of sunset crazy colour blend,
He was born free a long time ago
When his mind and body were young.
He loved the village lanes
And the busy market towns.
I brought a flower to him.
The wise old man shook his head.
Child, he said
I made the trees and the flowers;
I cannot stop cursing myself
For not giving you
A better place
To rest your head
Let us for a moment
Dare to hold our books to our hearts,
Invoking some sincerity.
Their wisdom is timeless
I wonder what game we are playing with life.
I am one
And life is another.
Life does not end, at any time
Night and day
