Go

Woman, you are love incarnated

- by Jaishankar Prasad 1

Now I've come to know -
I am a woman of weakness.
My soft beauty of winds
Makes me lose to everyone.

But why does my heart
Itself grows so tender?
And why do my dusky eyes
Well up suddenly with tears?

To lose myself fully,
To trust the shades of a tall tree,
To lie down there silently,
Why do my longings grow in the web of love?

Woman, you are love incarnated
Under the silver mountain of faith.
Keep on flowing like a river of nectar
On the beautiful bed of life.

-tr. Ravi Kopra

Yah aaj samajh to paayi.N hu.N,
main durbalata mei.N nari hu.N
Avyav ki sundar komalta,
lekar main.N sabse haari hu.N

Par mann bhi kyo.N,
itna dheela apne hi hota jaata hai
Ghanshyam khand si aankhon mein
Kyon sehsa jal bhar aata hai?

Sarvasva samarpan karne mi,
vishvas mahataru-chaya mei.N
Chupchap padi rehni ki kyo.N,
mamta jagti hai maya mei.N?

Nari! Tum keval shraddha ho,
Vishwas-rajat-nag-pal-tal mei.N,
Piyush srot si baha karo,
Jeevan ki sundar samtal mei.N

[ From Lajja]
