The 15th cent. poet Kabir's mystical poems were written in Hindi. Rabindranath Tagore and Evelyn Underhill translated them into Victorian English from a Bengali translation. Robert Bly subsequently translated the Tagore/Underhill translation into modern English. Bly's book 'Kabir Book' was published by Beacon Press in Boston in 1977.

"If you don't break your ropes while you're alive, do you think ghosts will do it after?"
