Don't make me hear all day

by Basava

English version by A. K. Ramanujan
Original Language Kannada

Don't make me hear all day
     'Whose man, whose man, whose man is this?'

Let me hear, 'This man is mine, mine
     this man is mine.'

O lord of the meeting rivers,
     make me feel I'm a son
     of the house.

-- from Speaking of Siva, by A K Ramanujan
