Who is it that echoes

by Devara Dasimayya

English version by A. K. Ramanujan
Original Language Kannada

When, to the hungerless figure,
you serve waters of no thirst,
whisper the senseless word
in the heart,
and call without a name,

who is it that echoes O!
in answer,
O Ramanatha,

is it you,
or is it me?

-- from Speaking of Siva, by A K Ramanujan
