(i hear the melody)
III. 102. ham se raha na jay
I HEAR THE melody of His flute, and I cannot contain myself:
The flower blooms, though it is not spring; and already the bee has received its invitation.
The sky roars and the lightning flashes, the waves arise in my heart,
The rain falls; and my heart longs for my Lord.
Where the rhythm of the world rises and falls, thither my heart has reached:
There the hidden banners are flittering in the air.
Kabir says: 'My heart is dying, though it lives.'
