Dignity Of A Better Lover A Poem In Bangla - With English Translation
Akhono muhorito praan Amaar
Tor boshonter paagol dibha raatree shomaan,
Mor ontorer Aakash, paataal
Dujone sourobhito tor gourobe opaar
Maatee amaay Chede diye che,
Tor rangaa chokh amaay kede niyeche.
Even now blossoms my being,
In the mad spring days and nights of yours,
The sky and the depths of me,
Both remain fragrant in your dignity.
The soil has divorced me,
The red of your eyes have snatched me.
The Eternal Need
The eternal need:
The vast expanse of your limitless eyes
Do not quench but fuel my eternal need
The gaze they hold entwined between them
Do not quench but fuel my primeval desire
The dark depth of theirs, pregnant with promise
Do not quench but spark a wild fire in my being
As if burning through millennia, relentless, biblical.
