All English Sonnets
What haunting song has come out of his lips?
That makes them listen, silent and subdued.
But says “ Viyogi” of this heady mood,
It does not last for long and quickly slips.
He knows the world, the truth we do not grasp,
And hence he sings for himself not for us,
And lives in heavens evergreen and lush,
Which makes us wonder, turn in graves and gasp,
At this disarming exercise in grace-
Which does not turn to ashes when described-
Nor preens itself when it is most envied,
With subtle gesture looking face to face,
He speaks so softly, slowly sweet and meek
That when he speaks you feel he does not speak.
