By M. Adil, 1935
Ulla grass, I often listen to your whistling rustle,
If the soft wind swirls around you;
Your heads lowered as if in homage,
You bow singing of grief which cuts the heart;
While shivering grips your long stems
Straight and bowed declaring your praise –
Completely pervading my conscience,
Because your song makes an agreement with my sorrow.
In the shade I often lazing sit
Gazing at the waves which gently undulate,
Escorting the song of your sighing siren leaves
Serene, at peace, unperturbed
I recede me into a wave of ecstasy
Into your oneness mystic soaring oblivious to time,
Caught in the stream as if in a dream,
Prostrate to intercede for God’s mercy divine.
