Where does one begin with you?

by Tukaram

English version by Dilip Chitre
Original Language Marathi

Where does one begin with you?
O Lord, you have no opening line
It's so hard to get you started.

Everything I tried went wrong.
You've used up all my faculties.

What I just said vanished in the sky
And I've fallen on the ground again.

Says Tuka my mind is stunned:
I can't find a word to say.

-- from Says Tuka: Selected Poetry of Tukaram, Translated by Dilip Chitre
