The Songs of Kabir, tr. by Rabindranath Tagore, intro. by Evelyn Underhill, [1915], at


I. 71. gagan ghatâ ghaharânî, sâdho

CLOUDS thicken in the sky! O, listen to the deep voice of their roaring;
The rain comes from the east with its monotonous murmur.
Take care of the fences and boundaries p. 134 of your fields, lest the rains overflow them;
Prepare the soil of deliverance, and let the creepers of love and renunciation be soaked in this shower.
It is the prudent farmer who will bring his harvest home; he shall fill both his vessels, and feed both the wise men and the saints.
