How do I set a melody to this dark

নিদ্রাহারা রাতের এ গান 
Nidrahara raater e gaan (audio: Subinoy Roy)

How do I set a melody to this dark
So full of music and awareness,
How do I borrow tunes
From the fragrant tuberose!

My ache cries out for a song,
Like a shadow dreaming of sunshine
Drifting endlessly in the wilderness
In quest of a muse

She, who thrilled wild blossoms
In her wake with dewy footfall
She, whose hair shimmered
With a single red oleander

Clinging to a long lost memory,
What invisible bud
Do I now try to discern
As my gaze sweeps the faraway!
