Narsinh Mehta

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

Cover me with a blanket O Kanha,


Cover me with a blanket O Kanha, my chunri is all drenched!
Hold me close O Kanha; I am bare and shivering!

My dark love, hold me with tenderly,
Embrace me in your ecstasy!
put your arms around me and sip the heavenly nectar from my lips!
Cover me with a blanket, O Kanha, my chunri is all drenched!
Hold me close O Kanha; I am bare and shivering!

In this gentle drizzle, the frogs and peacocks cry!
Narsaiyya's lord has come to love
And the dark clouds and lightning thunder in the sky!
Cover me, with a blanket, O Kanha, my chunri is all drenched!
Hold me close O Kanha; I am bare and shivering!

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
