Mouno “Silence” poem by Tagore translation by Ranu

Whatever I say is ineffectual,

my mind nods ___ it’s not,it’s not.

The words that fulfills my heart

why don’t they ring in my instrument!

It only fills my emotion

my heart is overcast with clouds;

sometimes it rends like a flash of lightning

splits my heart what does it want to show!

Silent dumb stupid in deep darkness

suddenly at midnight it cries in a hundred streams.

Burden of words choke, oh you paralyzed heart,

where did you lose your songs.

No flute,just useless breath___

instead of music only tears.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you very much for sharing this poem. Being reduced to silence, speechlessness, and nothingness…perhaps that’s a gift.

    All good wishes,

    robert
