Kalidasa - Waking

Even the man who is happy
     glimpses something
     or a hair of sound touches him

     and his heart overflows with a longing
          he does not recognize

then it must be that he is remembering
     in a place out of reach
     shapes he has loved

     in a life before this

     the print of them still there in him waiting


-- from East Window: Poems from Asia, Translated by W. S. Merwin
Poetry Chaikhana | Kalidasa - Waking
