(POEM) Play Not thy Flute By: KedarNath Agarwal
(English Translation)

Play Not thy Flute
"Bansi na bajao majhi - बंसी न बजाओ माझी "

O Sailer : play not thy flute,
My mind sways,
My mind sways as sways
The aqueous sheet,
As instantly sways the ship on
Eddis tost.
O sailer : play not thy flute
My resolve breaks even as the
Straw breaks,
A breaks the straw nest
Time and again wrought.
O sailer : play not thy flute
My body swings so your body
Swings,
And lo: My body and your body
Together swing.
