চাঁদের হাসির বাঁধ ভেঙেছে
*Chaander hashir bandh bhengechhe (audio: Dwijen Mukhopadhyay)
Radiant moonbeams glorify the night
O my tuberose, won't you airily suffuse?
The whirling wind can not comprehend
From where it senses a calling, waving hand
As it roves about in groves, all
Buds enchant, amuse.
A royal blue sky is smeared with a hint of light
My lyrics such are swans swiftly soar and hover by.
Like flakes of dusty jasmine in the night
The earth revels in sprinkles of moonlight
As if a bride lit up the sky
In longing she let loose.
