Life is strange - Translation of a Meerabai poem

"Karam ki gati Nyari"
- Meerabai

Life is strange

Deer have large eyes
but wander in the forest

Cranes are white
Sweet Koyal is black

Small rivulets are sweet
The magnanimous ocean salty

Those lacking intellect rule
Wise men are on the street

Life is strange

Who cares for the king?
Meera sings for true love
