Free from him

A deity hummed her hymn with Sulasa’s win
And Sattuka’s tumbling the precipice down.

♦     ♦     ♦     ♦     ♦     ♦     ♦     ♦     ♦     ♦     ♦

You’re not free, Sulasa, you’re are not free;
Maybe, free from him but not from them.

Him you chose, I know, to be free from men;
Now you’re free from him but not from them.

When fire meets with water, it meets its end;
If it meets with cotton, then it runs to its end.

You’re so cool as water and as soft as cotton;
So, he met his end, yet you burn in them.

The hunted can sing with a hunter’s end,
But if hunting goes on, your paean is in vain.
