The songs of a weaver 4: Kabir

Think twice before you keep,

the bad or good company.

the bitter neem that keeps,

the company of a sandalwood tree,

begins to smell like Sandalwood.

The piece of Iron,

that keeps the company of

the philosophers stone,

turns into gold.

Water that drain into the Ganga,

become the Ganga.

And those who keep

the Company of Almighty

says Kabir end up a bit like

Almighty / Rama.
