Calcutta nr. 342
We came from nonentity pure, we depart impure
Peaceful we came in & vexed we depart
O pity & regret that until we close our eyes
We give our lives to the win & depart into the earth.
From nothingness clean we came and all unclean we go;
Easeful we came and full of dole and teen we go:
In the fire of the heart we fell for the water of the eye;
Life to the wind we cast and to earth e'en we go.
Pure from the void we came, unclean we go;
Tranquil we came, depart we full of woe.
With hearts afire and watered with our tears
And giving life to wind in earth lie low.
