This ancient joy is your song
This ancient joy is your song to
Final core, the dream, the pith,
The dust, the
Swan of luck and will, this ancient
Tale, this rim
Of axe and word and tale and
What Kabir sung and how Tagore thunk it to be sung
II. 24. hamsâ, kaho purâtan vât
Tell me, O Swan, your ancient tale.
From what land do you come, O Swan? to what shore will you fly?
Where would you take your rest, O Swan, and what do you seek?
Even this morning, O Swan, awake, arise, follow me!
There is a land where no doubt nor sorrow have rule: where the
terror of Death is no more.
There the woods of spring are a-bloom, and the fragrant scent "He
is I" is borne on the wind:
There the bee of the heart is deeply immersed, and desires no
play! as the duststorm wants you
to; play! as
the gatherer of forms will wilt an
typecast word rummaging with
play! for the harbinger of verbs is
wont not to act.
