How I’m Smitten With Thee

How I’m Smitten With Thee

smitten

A poignant melody, my lips quiver,

Midnight blue falls into slumber,

Dew cascades, and night becomes drenched;

Come! Be a haven to my Soul, O Love!

 

Ah! Conceal me in crimson lips, O Love!

I yearn to kiss thy fragrant grove

Quench my thirst with the wine of roses,

I pine to respire in thy sumptuous alcove

Cover my eyes with starlight, O Love!

I covet thee and the bliss above.

 

Widen my Heart, O celestial sky!

To the width of a perennial garden,

Where fragrant flowers

Blossom in my heart, and

Where the whole cosmos

Lie in contemplation in my Soul.

 

Elevate my Soul, O mellow breeze!

And carry it to an ocean of orison,

Where placid waves rise in the nucleus,

And my very core transforms into a sea of Light.

Speak to me from within, O Love!

I appeal to thee with naked gloves;

Life is a prism of thy glorious Light,

I soar to embrace thy effulgent height –

Like the mirth of a butterfly

That’s drunk with sweet nectar,

Like the grace of Jasmine vines

Ornamented with drizzle,

Like the hues of a rainbow

Coruscating the sky,

Like the rays of the Sun

Kissing the gentle eyes,

Similarly, I have fallen in Love

With my Beloved’s majesty,

O Supreme Delight!

O Divine wine of ecstasy!

O intimate quintessence of Eternity!

How I’m smitten with thee!
