Treasure Island

Narsinh Mehta

(1414? – 1481? / Talaja, Bhavnagar, Gujarat / India)

At what auspicious hour did you stick to me like a bindi , O dark one?


At what auspicious hour did you stick to me like a bindi, O dark one?
Life of my life, I won't forsake you even for a moment, my slim beloved!

At the door, I find you leaning, and at the windows, I see you sitting near.
I keep running into you, in any street I take,
sweetheart, sweeter than the elixir of immortality!

At what auspicious hour did you stick to me like a bindi, O dark one?
Life of my life, I won't forsake you even for a moment, my slim beloved!

When I prepare to eat, I find you close, and near bed as I prepare to sleep.
When I am on my way to Vrindavan, I find you embracing me!

At what auspicious hour did you stick to me like a bindi, O dark one?
Life of my life, I won't forsake you even for a moment, my slim beloved!

`You are loved by Nanda's child!' my in-laws cruelly mock me.
When I go to fill water at the banks of Yamuna, you toy with my skirt!

At what auspicious hour did you stick to me like a bindi, O dark one?
Life of my life, I won't forsake you even for a moment, my slim beloved!

How he loves to dog the ones he loves, my cherished connoisseur,
It is good to attain Narsaiyya's lord; he occupies the lotus of my heart!

At what auspicious hour did you stick to me like a bindi, O dark one?
Life of my life, I won't forsake you even for a moment, my slim beloved!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
