পূর্ণ প্রাণে চাবার যাহা
*Purno praane chabar jaha (audio)
When you could seek your royal prize
Why extend your hands for alms, why?
Why should you plead with tearful eyes?
Welcome her with a string of gems
Your hearts will be duly exchanged
Why do you wish to seat your goddess
On pathways in a desert of sand?
In summer when the groves are dry
The drift seethes with a pitiful sigh
Would you present your bouquet of buds
A heart-offering, so wilted and wry?
When you usher in your special guest
Usher her in with true respect
Let the sky glow with a thousand stars
In the darkness of your precious tryst
