Treasure Island

Sant Tukaram

(1608 - 1650 / Dehu, Pune / India)

If Only you would


If Only you would
Give me refuge O Lord
To stay at your feet
In a line of saints.

I've already left behind
The world I loved.
Don't stand still:
It's your move now.

My caste is low;
My origins humble.
A little help from you
Will go a long way.

Thanks to Namdeo
You visited me
In a dream that left me
Poetry.

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
