Eid Equinox

An Eid Song in Raga Chayyanat:

Film: Jahan Ara
Mohammad Rafi & Suman Kalyanpur
Borrowed from parrikar.org

Praxilla

κάλλιστον μὲν ἐγὼ λείπω φάος ἠελίοιο,
δεύτερον ἄστρα φαεινὰ σεληναίης τε πρόσωπον
ἠδὲ καὶ ὡραίους σικύους καὶ μῆλα καὶ ὄγχνας·

Loveliest of what I leave behind is the sunlight,
and loveliest after that the shining stars and the moon’s face,
but also cucumbers that are ripe, and pears and apples.

Praxilla 5 BCE | Poetess of Sicyon
