Requiem / मृतक की याद में (Hindi Translation Of R L Stevenson's Poem) - Poem by Rajnish Manga

मृतक की याद में
मूल इंगलिश रचना: रॉबर्ट लुई स्टीवेंसन
हिंदी रूपांतरण: रजनीश मंगा

विस्तृत और ताराच्छादित इस आसमान के नीचे.
कब्र खोद मृत देह को मेरी, आराम करने दीजे.
प्रसन्नता से जीवन काटा, मरता उसी खुशी से,
बात खत्म मैं करता हूँ बस इसी वसीयत ही से.

नीचे की इस कविता को कब्र पे मेरी खुदवाना;
"यहाँ पर सोने वाले को इसी स्थान पर था आना,
सायंकाल सागर से जैसे नाविक वापिस आये,
गिरी-वन से आखेटक जैसे आखेट छोड़ घर आये."

This is a translation of the poem Requiem by Robert Louis Stevenson

Poet's Notes about The Poem

by Robert Louis Stevenson

Under the wide and starry sky
Dig the grave and let me lie.
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.

This be the verse you grave for me;
'Here he lies where he longed to be,
Home is the sailor, home from sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.'

    I had to read your Hindi translation of 'Requiem', even though I do not know your language.
    I know of no better epitaph than 'Requiem'.

    I am honoured to have you on this page for which the credit goes to the sublime beauty of this poem composed as his epitaph by the poet himself. Thanks a lot, Michael.
