Daily Prompt : Moon, a song by Tagore, sung by Sraboni Sen and translated by Ranu

In response to daily post’s prompt : Moon

Here is a Tagore’s song about the Moon

The smile of the moon has reappeared

There is light everywhere

O night flower pour your nectar

The crazy wind fails to understand

Where the call is coming from

In the flower garden

I fall in love with

whoever happens to be beside me

The face of the blue sky

Is smeared with the moon’s light

A couple of swans in the forest this evening

Have spread their wings in delight

O moon what are you spreading on earth

Who is the lady lighting the lamp in the bridal chamber

In Indira’s abode!
