Love's Consummation

Lost in myself I feel happy
I feel so very happy, my friend.
Don't go far, only keep on looking
Don't ask anything
And stay near me surrounding.
Let there be love in your eyes
Offer your self in silence
When away make songs of love
With sweet words
Singing them from behind
For me pluck your flowers in secret
To string into a garland
Don't ask for my heart
Just keep looking on
And stay near me surrounding.
Sweet is this life, sweet is this night
All their sweetness flowing on their own
They ask for nothing in return
Filled with my own fragrance
I feel lost in my own self
As if I have offered my everything
To my own self alone.

Translation of the love song – Sukhe achhi, sukhe achhi sakha, aponmone – from the dance drama Mayar khela by Rabindranath Tagore. The original is at
