Your feet and mine

by Devara Dasimayya

English version by A. K. Ramanujan
Original Language Kannada

God of my clan,
I'll not place my feet
but where your feet
have stood before:
I've no feet
of my own.

How can the immoralists
of this world know
the miracle, the oneness
of your feet
and mine,

Ramanatha?

-- from Speaking of Siva, by A K Ramanujan
