Calcutta nr. 341
Alas that we have become worn out uselessly
And that we have become consumed by the inverted bowl of heaven
O pity & regret that (painfully & regretfully have we lived) until we closed our eyes (?)
Not being according to our desire (yet) we have been
Alack, without profit forwearied and wom have we been!
By the sickle of giddy-pate Fortune still shorn have we been!
Wellaway! not a glance of the eye to our wish have we lived;
Nay, nor truly alive, since the day we were born, have we been.
