The impossible pass

by Kabir

English version by John Stratton Hawley and Mark Juergensmeyer
Original Language Hindi

The pundits have taken
A highway that takes them
     away,
     and they're gone.
Kabir has climbed to
The impossible pass
     of Ram
     and stayed.

-- from Songs of the Saints of India, Translated by John Stratton Hawley / Translated by Mark Juergensmeyer
