Hope - Poem by Kazi Nazrul Islam

Perhaps we shall meet,
Where the bending sky kisses
The green wilderness.

Yonder, in the village field
On the ridges or the desolate quay
Perhaps you shall come smiling;
And clasp my arms.

Your unveiled glances,
In that impervious blue
Bring the secret message
From the southern breeze.

In the chinks of wilderness;
Oh dear;
Your gentle kisses on my eyes
Remain enshrined.
In the horizon's golden hue.

[Translation: Syed Mujibul Huq]
