আমি তো আমার শপথ রেখেছি
অক্ষরে অক্ষরে
যারা প্রতিবাদী তাদের জীবন
দিয়েছি নরক করে |
দাপিয়ে বেড়াবে আমাদের দল
অন্যে কবে না কথা
বজ্র কঠিন রাজ্যশাসনে
সেটাই স্বাভাবিকতা |
গুলির জন্য সমস্ত রাত
সমস্ত দিন খোলা
বজ্র কঠিন রাজ্যে এটাই
শান্তি শৃঙ্খলা |
যে মরে মরুক, অথবা জীবন
কেটে যাক শোক করে—
আমি আজ জয়ী, সবার জীবন
দিয়েছি নরক করে |

Te baptise soeur d'Apollon.

Sur la lyre au plectre d'ivoire,
Ce nom splendide et souverain,
Beau comme l'amour et la gloire,
Prend des résonances d'airain.

Classique, il fait plonger les...
