Translated by the poet himself, they recreate a romantic vision of the divine Truth. They intricately weave the sacred with the secular. Some are tales in verse with a rare delicacy of feeling. Some are dreamy and symbolic of the poet’s mood. The recurring images – the crossing of the river, the call of the boatman, a singing mendicant, dark clouds gathering in the sky, the lover waiting for the beloved – spring from familiar situations and attain cosmic dimensions. Many of these poems are about love. Some are strikingly different in their robustness of form and rhythm and reflect the unending quest of life.
