When I bring to you colored toys, my child,
I understand why there is such a play of colors on clouds, on water,
and why flowers are painted in tints
---when I give colored toys to you, my child.
When I sing
I truly now why there is music in leaves,
and why waves send their chorus of voices to the heart of the listening earth
---when I sing to make you dance.
When I bring sweet things to your greedy hands
I know why there is honey in the cup of the flowers
and why fruits are secretly filled with sweet juice
---when I bring sweet things to your greedy hands.
to make you dance
When I kiss your face to make you smile, my darling,
I surely understand what pleasure streams from the sky in morning light,
and what delight that is that is which the summer breeze brings to my body
---when I kiss you to make you smile.
Singing with the euphoria of the night's sky,
all of the creatures of Its divine body
seek shelter under the pleasant sounds
which are projected out of the cave of Universal Being.
Happily and speedily jumping from one gate of light to the next,
the World Soul animates me with the endurance of countless ages
and comforts me with the knowledge of Infinite Awareness.
