Ananda Chandra Barua

[Bokul Bonor Kobi] (31 December 1907 - 27 January 1983 / Assam / India)

Hafiz And I

Yes, it was I, I remember now
Who had drunk the fragrant wine of persia
With unquenched thirst
and with purling music had enticed my heart.

I was Khayyam and Hafiz, with flowing beard
And dozing eyes
Face clouded with dreams and riddles
Mind impassioned in eager love
