Lines #3

The occasional series moseys on along...

***

Hey my heart tell me,
What have you come along on?
Who is it who has come,
And cast shadows on my thoughts.

Alternate for first line: "Hey my heart give me a Bata." Not quite as poetic, but definitely more intriguing.

Also see this that I wrote last January for another interesting alternate for the first line -- interesting because of how words come to mean different things.

"O heart confide in meee
Who has taken your fanceee?
Who's come n' over-powerrred
The senses to-tuh-leee".

Hi; the above comment was from me Dilip.

Not from (anony)mouse.

Pankaj, I knew it was you! You're good at this stuff -- where I find fun in the more literal translations, you're doing it poetically in the shower every morning. Once more, I can almost picture someone shimmying to your English version.
