A Group of Indian Epigrams: “When I Have a Convenient Season”

Translation of Charles Rockwell Lanman, editor

ON naught but play will happy childhood think;

The youth to blooming maid his love must bring;

And since old age in streams of care doth sink,

To sovran Brahm no mortal wight will cling.
