What comes from your willing hands I...

Language: English after the Bangla (Bengali)

"What comes from your willing hands I take. 
I beg for nothing more."
"Yes, yes, I know you, modest mendicant, 
you ask for all that one has."

"If there be a stray flower for me I will wear it in my heart."
"But if there be thorns?"
"I will endure them."
"Yes, yes, I know you, modest mendicant, 
you ask for all that one has."

"If but once you should raise your loving eyes to my face it
would make my life sweet beyond death."
"But if there by only cruel glances?"
"I will keep them piercing my heart."
"Yes, yes, I know you, modest mendicant, 
you ask for all that one has."
