I Danced Before My Giridhara – Mirabai Devotional Poem

I danced before my Giridhara.
Again and again I dance
To please that discerning critic,
And put His former love to the test.

I put on the anklets
Of the love of Shyam,
And behold! My Mohan stays true.
Worldly shame and family custom

I have cast to the winds.
I do not forget the beauty of the Beloved
Even for an instant.
Mira is dyed deeply in the dye of Hari.

~ Mirabai
