Little glow-worm

ও জোনাকি কী সুখে
O jonaki kee shukhe (audio: Srikanta Acharya)
Little glow worm,
What loving thrill
Spreads into your little wings
In the darkness, in twilight
As you pour your life out with glee

You are neither sun nor moon,
But your life brims with joy
You are so sure of what you have got,
You need not beg of others
The divine fire within
Commands you to be just the way you are

You easily survive the cuff of the dark
And in spite any littleness
It makes you tremendous,
It makes you one with all the light
The divine radiance
That exists in the world
