Love Poems In Hindi
An Indian Love Song



Lift up the veils that darken
the delicate moon
of thy glory and grace,
Withhold not, O love, from the night
of my longing the joy
of thy luminous face,
Give me a spear of the scented keora
guarding thy pinioned curls,
Or a silken thread from the fringes
that trouble the dream
of thy glimmering pearls;
Faint grows my soul
with thy tresses' perfume
and the song of thy anklets' caprice,
Revive me, I pray,
with the magical nectar
that dwells in the flower of thy kiss.

How shall I yield to the
voice of thy pleading,
how shall I grant thy prayer,
Or give thee a rose-red silken tassel,
a scented leaf from my hair?
Or fling in the flame of thy heart's
desire the veils that cover my face,
Profane the law of my father's creed
for a foe of my father's race?
Thy kinsmen have
broken our sacred altars
and slaughtered our sacred kine,
The feud of old faiths
and the blood of old battles
sever thy people and mine.


What are the sins of my race, Beloved,
what are my people to thee?
And what are thy shrines,
and kine and kindred,
what are thy gods to me?
Love recks not of feuds and bitter follies,
of stranger, comrade or kin,
Alike in his ear sound the temple bells
and the cry of the muezzin.
For Love shall cancel the ancient wrong
and conquer the ancient rage,
Redeem with his tears
the memoried sorrow
that sullied a bygone age.
