Jibanananda Das's poem -4
"An October Morning"
An October morning
[Translation by: A.H. Jaffor Ullah)
In one October morning,
some dewdrops fell on my face and hair.
The dewdrops are here through
sarika* birdís courtesy.
Three drenched sarika birds
almost touching an emblica^ tree
enjoying the sunís warmth.
Is it an indigo-laden blue field?
Or is it an azure sky?
Is it the sun? Or something sun-like?
The bird slithers away
from our world into its own.
In my life, I have seen many sarika birds,
but never have I seen anything
like those three.
*sarika bird is indigenous to India and is called shalik in Bangla.
^emblica is known as Amloki in Bangla
