Illimitable dazzling blue sky,
The ocean of eternity;
The earth, the sun and the moon
Are swans playfully swimming in the pond
Of this vast expanse of deep space.
The millions of stars and galaxies
Are the snow bubbles emanating
In among the waves of this eternal
Ocean, always in motion in time and
The infinitude of the Space.
This unknown lover has been waiting
From infinity of time immemorial,
Without beginning or end, for
A beloved without identity.
In every full moon night he prepares
An ornate golden throne for her in the heavens,
And in frustration when she is not coming
And he could not meet her, sheds his tears
In despair from the clouds, with the fierce wrath
Of thunder and lightning, inundating the earth.
An unfulfilled hope enshrined in the heart!
As an analogy the ocean reached its hands
To grapple the setting golden sun
Into its bosom, and vermillion sky also
Attempted to hide the sun in the gloom of
Its hair locks, but was foiled and discomfited.
And the sun acquiesced to the effort of the sea.
Embracing with fond affection like zealous lovers
They together went into the nuptial bower to
Spend the night in lascivious splurges, and to rise
Up early in the morning with a suffused blush
On the cheeks, and a contented grimace.
