by Vidyapati

As the mirror to my hand
the flowers to my hair
kohl to my eyes
tambul to my mouth
musk to my breast
necklace to my throat
ecstasy to my flesh
heart to my home
as a wing to my bird
water to fish
life to the living
so you to me.

But tell me,
Madhava beloved
who are you
who are you really?
