Original Poem: Last night as I was sleeping,
By Antonio Machado

Translation By: Mohammed Asim Nehal

कल रात जब मैं सो रहा था,
तब मैंने एक सपना देखा-अनोखा लेकिन ग़लती भरा! -
कि एक झरना फूट पड़ा
मेरे दिल से बाहर।
मैंने कहा: किस गुप्त जल श्रोत आए हो,

ओ पानी, क्या तुम मेरे लिए आए हो?

The poet has made very strong observations, part reality and part fancied, aimed at removing certain weaknesses and making life more worthy of living. As translator you have succeeded in transporting the essence of the original poem as much as was possible. Loved reading it. Thanks a lot for sharing, Mohd. Asim ji.
