All English Sonnets
HYMN OF MOTHER DURGA
Neither debtor, nor a creditor,
Neither foolish, nor a learned dean,
An’ neither giver nor inheritor,
Of either wisdom or of pious mien.
To nothing of this sort, I aspire,
And you can see this from your lofty seat,
That I have nothing but this sole desire,
To live and perish paying at your feet.
No wish to keep on living, be immortal,
No wish to be remembered in the future,
No wish of pelf or sprawling kingly portal,
No wish to alter vagaries of nature.
“viyogi”- simply wants to bid adieu,
To this, his borrowed body, merge in you.
