III. 26. ayau din gaune ka ho


THE PALANQUIN came to take me away to my husband's home, and it sent through my heart a thrill of joy;

But the bearers have brought me into the lonely forest, where I have no one of my own.

O bearers, I entreat you by your feet, wait but a moment longer: let me go back to my kinsmen and friends, and take my leave of them.

The servant Kabir sings: 'O Sadhu! finish your buying and selling, have done with your good and your bad: for there are no markets and no shops in the land to which you go.'
