Florist - Poem by Sayeed Abubakar

I went to a flower-shop of my town.
I asked the florist, 'Why have you chosen
this profession? Is it the cause that you
love flowers most? ' He said, 'No, sir, I have
chosen it because it's profitable
and people now spend money in buying
flowers.' I asked, 'Why do people buy it?
Is it the cause that they love flowers most? '
He said, 'No. They buy it because it helps
them get cheap inconstant love of others.'

    ফুল বিক্রেতা:

    আমি শহরের একটি
    ফুলের দোকানে গিয়েছিলাম|

    ফুল বিক্রেতাকে বললাম,
    ‘এ পেশা বাছাইয়ের কারন কি?
    ফুলের প্রতি অগাধ ভালবাসা? ’

    তিনি বললেন, ’তেমনটি নয়,
    লোকজন ইদানীং ফুল ক্রয়ে
    টাকা ব্যয় করে
    তাছাড়া ইহা লাভজনকও বটে|’

    আমি বললাম, ’লোকজন ফুল কেন
    খরিদ করে?
    ফুলের প্রতি অগাধ ভালবাসা থেকে? ’

    তিনি বললেন, ’তেমনটি নয়|
    তারা ফুল খরিদ করে কেননা
    সুলভ অস্থায়ী প্রেম অর্জনে
    ইহা সহায়ক |’

    বঙ্গানুবাদ করেছেন- মাসুমা আখতার রুমা
