My Heart Holds Nectar

My heart brims with nectar, do you desire it?
Alas, perhaps you failed to notice!
The sweet fragrance of the Parijat, can you smell?
Alas, perchance it too seems out of bounds!
It’s raining love, alas, aren’t you even aware of that?
Today with the rumbling clouds,
Do you let the peacocks dance in your heart?
I’ve strung the chords on the sitar -
I’ve tuned the melodies of paradise…
Would you like to sing the notes with me—
Our hearts and souls in unison?
Alas, may be you couldn’t come to the concert!
Again and again Nature has called out, did you respond?
On this day of Jhulan, all hearts feel the sway
Yet only your heart fails to move!
The recesses of my heart hold nectar, do you need it?
Alas, possibly you don’t even care to know!

*This poem is a free translation of Rabindranath Tagore's song Amar praner majhe sudha achche, chao ki?
