From One Hundred Poems, i. 82

Kabir (1440–1518)
I LAUGH 1 when I hear that the fish in the water is thirsty.
Perceivest thou not how the god is in thine own house,
  that thou wanderest from forest to forest so listlessly?
In thy home is the Truth. Go where thou wilt, to Benares or to Mathura;
  if thy soul is a stranger to thee, the whole world is unhomely.        5
Note 1. Kabir, i. 82. [back]
