किछु दिन मोने मोने

 

किछु दिन मोने मोने घोरेर कोने
शैमेर पिरीत राख गोपोने
किछु दिन मोने मोने

 

इशाराए कोईबी कोथा गोठे माठे
देखीश जेनो केऊ ना जाने केऊ ना बोझे केऊ ना शोने
किछु दिन मोने मोने…

 

शैमके जोखोन पोरबे मोने
चाइबी काला मेघेर पौने
रान्नाशाले कान्दबी बोशे भीजे काठ दीए उनोने
किछु दिन मोने मोने…

 

शैम शायोरे नाइते जाबी
गायर बोशोन भीजबे केने?
शायोरे शातोर दिए आशबी फिरे, गायर बोशोन भीजबे केने
किछु दिन मोने मोने…

 

बोली उत्तर जाबी शातोर होबी
बोलबी आमी जाई दोखीने
रोशीक जाने रोशेर मोरोम, औरोशिके जानबे केने?
किछु दिन मोने मोने…

Kichhu Din Mone Mone

 

Kichhu din mone mone ghorer kone
Shyamer peerit raakh gopone
Kichhu din mone mone

 

Ishaaraaye koibi kotha gothhe maathhe
Dekhish jeno keu na jaane, keu na bojhe, keu na shone
Kichhu din mone mone

 

Shyamke jokhon porbe mone
Chaaibi kaala megher paune
Rannashaale kaandbi boshe
Bheeje kaathh diye unone
Kichhu din mone mone…

 

Shyam shaayore naaite jaabi
Gaayer boshon bheejbe kene?
Shaayore shaator diye aashbi phire
Gaayer boshon bheejbe kene?
Kichhu din mone mone…

 

Uttor jaabi shaator hobi
Bolbi aami jaai dokhine
Roshik jaane rosher morom
Auroshike jaanbe kene?
Kichhu din mone mone…

For A Few Days

 

For a few days, deep within your heart
In a corner of your body-house
Keep your love for Shyam secret!
Speak in hints in grazing fields
So that no one should guess
No one should hear, no one should know!

 

When Shyam’s memory troubles your heart
Looking at the black clouds passing by
When tears fill your eyes, sitting in the kitchen
Put some wet wood in the stove for smoke
For a few days…

 

Go and bathe in the river of Shyam
But don’t let your clothes get wet!
Swim to your heart’s content but beware
Why should your clothes get wet?
For a few days…

 

If you’re headed north, be alert
Tell everyone you’re headed south!
Lovers delight in this wine’s secret
What will a dry heart understand?
For a few days…
