What A Fire - Poem by Kazi Nazrul Islam

What a fire burns on, O confidante,
What a fire it is!
My eyes are filled with tears, O confidante
What a fire burns in my heart!

I went callous crazy, not forsaking the body,
on this moonface fell the shadow of my eclipsed love.
my heart swells up with waves of seven seas
What a fire bums on, what a fire it is!

[Original: Ki Anol jole go shoi; Translation: Mohammad Nurul Huda]
