Who are you? and From Far

Jatindra Mohan Ganguli


In night you come, with dawn go,
In dark and fear I behold;
Behind the dazzle with eyes closed.
Who comes to wipe my tears?
A soft word to say and cheer?
In pain a touch, in fall a hope,
In sorrow so kind and sure;
I grasp a hand;
Who are you?


From far, further far,
Thy voice comes gentle, so sweet,
In the breeze over the leaves,
Where the branches meet.
In temple rush and roar,
Thy voice no more.
Its roof mean and low,
Thy glory not hold and show.
