A monsoon evening draws near

আষাঢ়সন্ধ্যা ঘনিয়ে এল
ashadh shondhya ghoniye elo

A monsoon evening draws near
Comes to end yet another day
The rains pour down unabated

Sitting at home in solitude
I wander lost in my own thoughts
Drifting through jasmine scented woods
I wonder what the wind whispers

My heart is in deluge
Flooding over from shore to shore
My heart is overwhelmed
With the heady fragrance
Wafting from wet woodland flowers

The hours of this dark night
How do I fill with melody
If only I would slip
If I could just forget my all
For that I wait so eagerly
