Tagore song: keno jamini na jete jagalena posted and translated by Ranu

Why did you not awaken me?

Before the night ended.

My shame incapacitates my legs

To walk on this path.

Sick at heart the flower is

Clinging to life while withering.

Why did you not awaken me?

Before the night ended.

The lamp is relieved, it’s job

Is done as it is extinguished

By the dawn’s breeze.

The moonlight prays for shelter

At the corner of the sky.

The bird announces daybreak

The bride walks gingerly

With her pail to fetch water.

I anxiously cover my hair

While I wonder how will I

Walk in such a state in the

Middle of this path.

Why did you not awaken me?

Before the night ended!

You are the sky and the dwelling at the same time.

O beautiful, your love is solid in this tiny hut

each moment in various hues, in diverse scent and songs,

the charming life surrounds the foundation

There daybreak holds its gold dish

brings one graceful garland

quietly dresses  the earth’s destiny;

evening comes in meekly on the empty ground

on the road without any mark

calmly filling water from the ocean.

Where you are , it’s our souls’ sky

where the boundless field is in motion

there is nothing,no days, no nights no living things,

no color, no smell ,no speech simply nothing.
