আতাচোরা পাখিরে
কোন তুলিতে আঁকি রে
হলুদ ?
বাঁশ বাগানে যইনে
ফুল তুলিতে পাইনে
কলুদ
হলুদ বনের কলুদ ফুল
বটের শিরা জবার মূল
পাইতে
দুধের পাহাড় কুলের বন
পেরিয়ে গিরি গোবর্ধন
নাইতে
ঝুমরি তিলাইয়ার কাছে
যে নদিটি থমকে আছে
তাইতে
আতাচোরা পাখিরে
কোন তুলিতে আঁকি রে
—হলুদ ?

by myself
to see the moonlight
and see it as trees

and shapes more fearful Read more...
