কে বলে 'যাও যাও'
Ke bole 'jao jao' (audio: Srikanta Acharya)
Who entreats that I take my leave?
My partings are compact.
For ever more, your gates release,
The wind drifts me back
You egg me on an ebbing sea
To unseen, distant shores
My way back on the tidal waves
Turn to former moors
A tramp I am, the path my home,
Just at ease with go and come
If dawn fades out my waning star
So then, let her go
Her speechless gaze will shine again
In twilight, all aglow
