I fell in love with a drop of dew on the grass.
Her beauty dazzled my eyes. Where ever I looked,
I saw nothing but that dew-drop shining like a
Star into my heart. My heart was stuck to her love
And I could not move a step anywhere. I thought
My stay with her would not come to an end as if
We had been in the world of eternity. My
Illusion disappeared when the sun appeared with
Full rage in the sky.I found the grass dry. Who would
Say, a drop of dew had been here! What is truth then-
Me, grass, the dew-drop or the sun in the vast sky?
