Khaila Bhola (Absent-minded Play) Poem by Tagore Translation By Ranu

“Yes, there he sat, on the back of the winged horse!” (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Do you think my mind is  occupied in play?

It is not true at all Mom,listen.

when I woke up early  the clouds were gone,

Sun , peeking through the trees.

Pooja music was coming from a distance,

three birds fighting on the roof.

toys scattered in front   what will I play,

I was thinking.

Spent the whole day undecided___

Sat holding the railing deep in thought.

I have  days of absent-mindedness Mom__

times when I have a queer feeling.

I see  the terrace

a little girl putting  a purple sari in the sun.

Quietly I watch, is it the wilderness__

I guess yonder is the king’s palace.

If I had  a winged-horse,

I would go immediately.

flying along the river bank

I would correct my way under a tree.

At times I see you with Dad’s letter

what do you think so quietly.

You look someone from an unknown land,

as if you are my mother from far away.

coming close I touch you__ it seems it’s my lost mother,

under the oak tree mother of flute .

I forget my play, I think

where is your home on which shore of the ocean!

I wish to go back to that strange island

you and me sailing on the sailboat!

Today when I look out my window, I see a long line of mothers ,walking with their infants in a baby carriage, enjoying the beautiful sunny morning.Then I see mothers taking their little five year-old kids to school. It is a day of celebration for all the mothers of the world.It’s an opportunity for fathers to celebrate with their wives,’Mothers Day’!

Sorry Guys   I gave,’Mother’s Day’ an early welcome.It is supposed to be on Sunday,I know this is the first time I thought about it so much.I made a huge mistake. I really apologize to all of you who follow my blog. Next time I’ll make sure to do the right thing.
