THIS INSTRUMENT OF DUST

O FRIEND!  this body is His lyre;

He tightens its strings, and draws from it the melody of Brahma.  

If the strings snap and the keys slacken, then to dust must this instrument of dust return:  

Kabir says:  “None but Brahma can evoke its melodies.”

Kabir

(translated by Rabindranath Tagore)
