A Guitar Of Light - Poem by Sayeed Abubakar

Someone has, as it were, thrown away a dark net
and the town has become a trout in that net;
no morning, as it were, has ever approached here,
the town has submerged in an overflowing darkness.

The town seems to be the island of a fairy tale.
I wonder who are, like giants, snatching away
the ornament of the forehead of a teen girl
and devouring then the bone-marrow in rapture.

I wonder who, by tearing up the civilization,
are eating up finally its bones and flesh.
Hadn't ever a single monk or saint come
amid this darkness here?


If it happens so, then you, o poet, take up the charge
and play the guitar of light in this darkness.


[Translation of the Bengali poem 'Alor Guitar' taken from the poet's first book 'Pronoyer Prothom Pap' (1996) ]

    This is a remarkable poem, both for the intense portrayal of the the danger and peril of our modern world and the faith in the power of poetry to comprehhend the situation and hopefully transcend the crisis. Thanks for translating this gem of a poem. (Report) Reply
