Tagore Song: Open, open the door; don’t keep me waiting

Kholo Kholo Daar

Open, open the door; don’t keep me waiting,
Waiting outside anymore
Do, do respond and look my way
Come with arms all extended!
Work is over; the evening star shines.
Having crossed the vast ocean,
Light’s ferry is fully spent.
Open, open the door; don’t keep me waiting,
Waiting outside anymore
Bag full of dew, are you all set
To purify the world anew?
Are your tresses done, flowers plucked
And garland all woven?
Cows are in their sheds, birds in their nests
All paths strewn across earth
Have disappeared in the dark!
Open, open the door; don’t keep me waiting,
Waiting outside anymore.
