Portrait

EHPEHPDPF tPOTPz oP aAilPAcPFnPLA:

62

I   SHALL not wait and watch in the house
     for thy coming,
but will go forth into the open,
for the petals fall from the drooping flowers
     and time flies to its end.
The wind is up, the water is ruffled.
Be swift and cut the rope,
let the boat drift in the midstream,
     for the time flies to its end.

The night is pale, the lonely.moon is plying
     its ferry of dreams across the sky.
The path is unknown, but I heed it not.
My mind has the wings of freedom
and I know that I shall cross the dark.
Let me but start on my journey, for the
     time flies to its end.

Poems: a collection of one hundred and thirty poems, all but fifteen of which have been translated by the Poet himself. Edited by Krishna Kripalani, Amiya Chakrabarty and others.
