The one string of Ektara

the Baul plays in reverence,

with his index finger in place:

the strain of his devotion

reaching miles and hence,

losing oneself in His name.

The seeker of truth

as he calls himself,

to dwell in His love,

union with the eternal Beloved.

The lanes he set his feet on,

the woods he traversed,

lives he touched with

his music and laughter.

His declarations of life

won many a hearts;

his enchanting folklore,

the soul-stirring songs,

piqued by occurrences,

are all but offerings to his Lord.
