Tagore song, posted and translated by ranu
I will offer a prayer
for all my sorrows
at the end of this day.
My prayer of sorrow
is not completed.
When the evening shadow announces
the end of the day,
When the birds fly into their nest,
And the evening bell is rung for worship
then the last of my life’s light
Memories of my pain
bind me in knots of deep despair,
It’s filled up in my mind this day
When the sacrificial fire of worship
releases the knots of my despair
One by one stars will appear ,
They will fly freely in the sky
With the vision of sunset
there will be preparations
to complete my prayer of sorrow!
Thank you for this transaltion of Tagore. Beautiful!!

Thank you for liking the song,Cindy.
Very moving indeed. The lyricism of the original is enchanting (although I could not understand all the words), and your translation conveys the meaning with a beautiful simplicity 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
