Akaashpradeep Skylight by Tagore,Translation by Ranu
On the dark shore of the river Indus,the solitary girl
floated the boat of light and looked up in the sky.
She knows her Mother has gone to heaven__
she will row the boat of light and come towards the house.
The world has countless people,innumerable are their route,
so many strange lands and unknown hills__
in the middle, there in the small corner of a house
is it visible there lives a brother and a sister?
Their mother moves around looking for them in the dark,
roams around between the stars,loses her way in the vacant sky?
the daughter left one light__
mother would recognize that one light from far away.
She will visit them in their sleep to give a kiss
to the two orphans lying in bed at night.
