Make Up

  When we first met you had no make-up
Now why have you one?
If love is mixed with illusions
Won't we miss each other
Half in darkness and half in light?
At your straight calls
My heart readily responds
Then why do you use
So much padding?
One whose eyes are colored
By feelings of love
Why do you show him
These additional trappings?
Coming closer
Why you keep this distance
Do you want to bind me
By an external bond?
By some stratagem
Do you want to steal
What is your absolute possession?

Translation of the love song - Bina saje saji - from the dance drama Chitrangada by Rabindranath Tagore.Best recording of this song is by Swagatalakshmi Dasgupta. The original with its swaralipi or notation is at http://www.rabindra-rachanabali.nltr.org/node/5705.
