Indian Love Lyrics (aka Garden of Kama) (1901)[edit]

  • Less than the dust beneath thy chariot wheel,
    Less than the rust that never stained thy sword,
    • Less Than the Dust
  • Less than the weed that grows beside thy door
    • Less Than the Dust
  • Pale hands I loved beside the Shalimar.
    Where are you now? Who lies beneath your spell?
    Whom do you lead on Rapture's roadway, far,
    Before you agonise them in farewell?
    • Kashmiri Song
  • I would have rather felt you round my throat
    Crushing out life, than waving me farewell!
    • Kashmiri Song
