O ascetic earth

তপস্বিনী হে ধরণী
tawposhwini hey dhawroni

O ascetic earth,
Here comes a spell of intense heat
Your seat of austere penance
Spreads across the silent azure

Let the play of your inner one
Be even more inward bound
Let the bounteousness of youth
Be shorn in breath of sacrificial fire

Varied tunes that cascaded forth
Bursting out in many a song
Let it dissolve into silence
Quiet chant of meditation

May restrained be the curling vines
Be curbed the restlessness of bloom
May the beauteous mother earth don
The humble garb of dusty gray
