Come darling and be my love!
I shall adorn thy hair with flowers of stars,
And thy ears with rings of the
young spring moon.
And around thy neck shall I put a garland
White as a row of swans,
And thy cloud-coloured dishevelled hair
I shall gather and bind
In dazzling ribbons of silvery lightning.
I shall mix sandalwood with moonlight
And with it wash thy body.
I shall snatch the red from the rainbow
And with it paint thy feet.
With the seven tunes of my song
I shall build thy wedding-bower.

[Original: Mor priya hobe esho rani; Translation: Kabir Chowdhury] And around thee will sing the nightingale
of my Poesy.
