    Mira Bai like poet's poems which is about the divine power and classic with devotion is so much lovable to the people and its original written lines with english translation will be much appreciated if it is possible.

The Saffron

The saffron of virtue and contentment
Is dissolved in the water-gun of love and affection.
Pink and red clouds of emotion are flying about,
Limitless colours raining down.
All the covers of the earthen vessel of my body are wide open;
I have thrown away all shame before the world.
Mira's Lord is the Mountain-Holder, the suave lover.
I sacrifice myself in devotion to His lotus feet.

[Hata Bildir]
