A description of the experience
I, Lalla – The Poems of Lal Ded translated by Ranjit Hoskote
Royal swan, what happened to your beautiful voice?
Someone’s robbed you and you can’t even say who or what.
The mill’s stopped grinding, its mouth looks choked
and where’s the grain? The miller’s got clean away!
