Excerpt from Last Poems: Translations From the Book of Indian Love

Will you not wait with me awhile, When swords are sheathed and sails are furled, And all the fields with harvest smile?

I would not waste your time for long, I ask you but, when you are tired, To read how by the weak, the strong Are weighed and worshipped and desired.

When weary of the Mart, the Loom, The Withering-house, the Rime-blocks, The Barrack-square, the Engine-room, The pick-axe, ringing on the rocks, When tents are pitched and work is done, While restful twilight broods above, By fresh-lit lamp, or dying sun, See in my songs how women love.

We shared your lonely watch by night, We knew you faithful at the helm, Our thoughts went with you through the fight, That saved a soul, or wrecked a realm Ah, how our hearts leapt forth to you, In pride and joy, when you prevailed.
