Will Power by Tagore translated by Ranu
Will Power By Rabindranath Tagore
If I could be anything,that I want to be,
I would want to be a wish river.
I will make the sun rise from the south,
darkness in the evening will come from my left,
I will tell my thoughts to both sides__
some I will tell in the day,some at night.
When I roam around in my village wharf
I will also sing in the fields far off
I know the villagers __ who come for a bath,.
they swim with their cattle to the other path.
The people from afar, have a different look__
I know not their name, they have that weird look.
The shiny water with small fragments of light___
the striking waves dancing like fairies clapping and laughing with delight.
At the bottom step of the wharf
there is a different scenery,
strangers are sitting looking quite scary,
what they are doing I cannot worry,
their movement makes me cringe with fright.
The villagers know only little of me,
the rest is lost,even I don’t know me.
There are green fields on one side,
the other side is sandy and sunny,I don’t see how I can go for a ride.
Daytime will be noisy and full of life,the night will be quiet and scary__
If I look at the riverbank,it will make me tremble and weary.
