To the guests that must go bid God's...

Language: English after the Bangla (Bengali)

To the guests that must go bid God's speed 
and brush away all traces of their steps.
Take to your bosom with a smile 
what is easy and simple and near.
To-day is the festival of phantoms 
that know not when they die.
Let your laughter be but a meaningless mirth 
like twinkles of light on the ripples.
Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time 
like dew on the tip of a leaf.
Strike in chords from your harp fitful momentary rhythms.
